Wunderlich Engine Guard Pipe Diameter?

Does anyone have Wunderlich Engine Guards on a 2014+ RT? If so, can you tell me the diameter of the tubing? Is it 25mm/1", or 32mm/1.25"?
Also, I realize that 25mm is not exactly 1" and 32mm is not exactly 1.25", but those are typically the pipe sizes they name, and they tend to vary in diameter at the bends anyway.

I have searched and searched, and cannot find the answer to this question. I am wanting to know the diameter, because I do not want to have to wait for my bars to arrive before ordering light mounts, which need to match the pipe diameter.

Thanks,
-Dana

Re: Wunderlich Engine Guard Pipe Diameter?

Here ya go...tel:8284893747 . Since they have moved from California to the NC mountains near me, they now operate on eastern time zone hours, (They are closed for the day) so you can wait and call them tomorrow. I looked to see if they gave measurement specs but I didn't see any. Hope this helps.

Never declare a cherished memory as "the best day of my life"...it will forever diminish the possibility for "Tomorrow" being the "Best Day!"

Hi Dana,
I think this is what you are looking for...25ish MM is the measured diameter of the front bars where you would most likely be clamping aftermarket light mounts.
As you can barely see, my Wunderlich bars have an additional steel lug with a threaded hole for mounting the OEM BMW light bars since the bars attach to the engine where they normally attach.
Hope this helps.

Thanks Boxflyer! That is exactly what I needed to know.

I have also ordered the Denali DR1 lights, and am planning on mounting them on the bars, right about where you have measured. I know about the OEM treaded area, and I see you have the OEM light mounts. I also know how crazy expensive those mounts are, though very nice. Looks like you have Clearwater Darla lights, and I know they sell those mounts with the RTW kit. I am going with an aluminum ring mount right on the bar.

Are you the person that Chris on the Street was talking about when he did his Farkles video?

Thanks again,
-Dana

Re: Wunderlich Engine Guard Pipe Diameter?

Well, yes I am...and Chris and I did the R1200RTW 12,000mi Maintenance series on YouTube together too.

I have ridden over 40,000mi since the first of April on my '16 RTW and just performed my first WetHead Tech Day on a 2019 1250RTW ShiftHead.
Lots of similarities, but a few differences to work around.
I just got a new video camera and hope to start making more YT videos again soon.

Yes just saw the Tech pages for the procedure on checking cams on the 1250 on another forum. Looks like no big deal just removing the shift cam adjuster and a new design jig but looks very similar and strait forward.

I understand the tool is available.

Here is a link to the shared procedure.
