When the sun goes down, the adventure is only beginning. Protect your headlight with the AltRider Lexan Headlight Guard for the BMW R 1200 GSW so you can keep going without fear of rocks or debris ending your ride.
Bullet-proof Lexan plastic shields the vulnerable headlight, and its scratch-resistant face will keep your path clearly lit. The lens is held by sturdy stainless steel arms, which attach securely to the motorcycle frame using OEM hardware and are locked into position by the blinker stocks.
When it’s time to clean up, taking off the face is a cinch and can be done quickly and easily. With a counter-clockwise turn, the Dzus fasteners release – no tools necessary. You don’t even need to worry about a pocket to put the fastener in, because it comes with a nylon retaining washer installed. Gas stops become easy places to grab a window washer and wipe grime off your headlight.
The best method is to soak in warm water to clean. Cleaning chemicals will degrade Polycarbonate (Lexan is the brand name). Polycarbonate is the same material used for helmet lenses and as Bruce Porter (industry expert) from Aria says “Never spray any aerosol on you lenses”.
If you decide you want more of an off-road appearance, you can swap out the Lexan for stainless steel, since both guards are interchangeable.
Save yourself hassle and frustration – and the purchase of a $450 headlight assembly – by using one or both of AltRider’s headlight guards.
IMPORTANT: Do not wash Lexan guard with any chemicals based cleaners (ex. alcohol, Windex, etc). Wash only with luke warm water and soap. Lexan is very strong but can break down over time when exposed to harsh chemicals.
