Starting with 1 inch (25.4 mm) diameter stainless steel tubing, the Reinforcement Bar is laser cut, CNC bent and hand TIG welded in the United States. The Reinforcement Bars mount at the engine with an included engine through bolt. Unlike other designs that use plastic inserts, this heat-treated and CNC-machined through bolt provides critical strength and stability, and AltRider is the only one on the market to utilize this design. The Reinforcement Bars mount to the OEM bars with full-wrap two-part high-strength alloy industrial clamps attached to 3/16 inch (4.7 mm) thick mounting flanges. Installation and removal is a 15 minute job with the included stainless steel hardware.
AltRider’s Reinforcement Bars are available in a silver electro-polish finish to match the OEM crash bars, or black powder coat to match the engine and frame of some GS’s. They are compatible with OEM accessory crash bars as well as stock BMW crash bars on the Adventure model.
