Crash Protection Options BMW G 310 GS (A Detailed Look)

Iím in the market for crash bars for my 2019 BMW G 310 GS. I often search out all of the options before making a better informed decision (it drives my wife crazy ). Thought Iíd share my findings in case it would help other riders. Also would like to know from others if Iíve missed anything and where if possibly I could purchase for cheaper Ė especially for those options that provide the lower engine protection and upper tank protection (my preference). Below is what I have gathered to date on the options. Iím also attempting to post corresponding pictures as well from each manufacturer. i.e. pic 1 Hepco and Becker, pic 2 Wunderlich, and so on so you can have a quick look for comparison. Iím also including best price options from sellers that I was able to find online Ė there are probably better options out there so please share if you know of any. I live in Canada so where possible I have priced in Canadian dollars and/or US dollars with the perspective of where best to buy if you live in Canada. These prices do not include applicable taxes, shipping and possible duties.

1. Hepco & Becker (Shipped from US)
Combination of Lower Engine Guard and Upper Tank Guard. Good protection and looks like a solid product.

2. Wunderlich Engine Crash Guards and Tank Protection Bar (Shipped from US)

I inquired and they currently donít have RockFox crash bars for 310 GS but expected to add to their next order.

9. Rally Raid (Shipped From UK)
This guard looks solid. Gives good protection and incorporates skid/bash plate.

10. SSB Motorrad
Couldnít find their website. Just a link to their FaceBook site. No idea on pricing. They have some really creative and good looking mods for the GS. Painted to match crash bars. Not sure if you can order from them. Check out some of their photos on their FB site.

And of course there are a million options on EBay and Amazon from China. Prices and pictures look good but not sure of the quality. Anyone have any experience purchasing crash bars this way?

That's awesome. I am loosing sleep over this and also driving people around crazy! Thank you for the research. I'm in Canada as well and I have contacted Rumbux directly but my quote was quite different. All expenses translated from ZAR to cnd $ Would be about $800... which is too bad because so far there are the one I like the most...
So much to choose from its hard to pick..
I will keep looking at all your links

One question: if I decide to lower my bike by 1inch (with the lowering kit) will I still be able to add the bars or am I doomed by doing so? Any idea ?

@Jul310 I can't see how lowering the bike would impact on crash bars. The crash bars and skid plate hug the engine/body - parts which should not be affected when lowering the suspension.

I have the Hepco engine and tank guards and are generally happy with them. Will be adding a SW Motech skid plate in the near future. If I had to redo it all now I would probably go to Rumbux route - all in one and looks seriously strong.

Hi I have the Rumbux crash bars and skidplate, its the most expensive but the protection works from the upper frame and lower bolt so impact will not jar through the engine like other ones, its a solid piece of kit and it still allows you to use centre stand mounting if required (Which I believe some others do not).
It also stands out further at the side to protect bars and plastics if it goes over.
I am very happy and the my BMW dealer said it looks like its part of the bike not an add on.


Hope this helps, I will try to post some pictures up from my phone.

Jul310- Just an FYI,
If you lower the suspension by an inch, you will need to shorten the kick stand by as much.
Ask me how I know
mtwashington and Jul310 like this.
