Keeping your brake system in top condition should be a top priority. The AltRider reservoir guard is manufactured from durable aluminum, and eliminates concerns of damage, contamination and tampering with your reservoir. Its unique cutout design allows you to check fluid levels without removing it from the bike. The AltRider master cylinder guard shares that durable aluminum construction, and offers more coverage for your master cylinder than the stock OEM guard thanks to its larger size and three mounting points. Demonstrating that sometimes it's better to have a bigger footprint, the AltRider side stand foot gives the R 1200 GS a larger area to rest the weight of the bike, making falls and drops on soft ground less likely. The most ergonomic design on the market, its shape, size and 3D traction allow for easy deployment while still sitting on the bike.
