the design of the bike has not changed yet, so Rembux will fit. but I saw in a showroom gs with Hepco bars fitted, and it all looks really sweet, and graceful...
it depends what you consider as 'engine'. most engine guards are attached to the lower part of the crankcase. but they do not hit the ground hard when the bike falls. it is the upper tank guards that take most of the hit, and handlebars mostly. most of the oem engine gaurds are attached to the lower part of the engine, as in my Tiger. this is not an issueHello All,
I am on a lookout for crash bars for my G310GS. I have gone through this thread, but unable to clearly make out which one of these crash bars, attached only to Body Frame and not anywhere to engine. After much study, I guess only SW Motech crash bars connect only to frame and no where on to engine. Please correct me if I am wrong.
Also, what would be damage to the engine (in case of crash bars connecting directly on the engine as well), as the primary function of the crash bar is to protect engine in case of a fall.
Thanks for your help

Thanks Kris! I appreciate your response. So, it is fine to have engine guards that attach to the lower part of crank case / Oil Sump. I now just need to open up my mind and have a relook at all the options. BTW, have you put up any crash bars on your GS?it depends what you consider as 'engine'. most engine guards are attached to the lower part of the crankcase. but they do not hit the ground hard when the bike falls. it is the upper tank guards that take most of the hit, and handlebars mostly. most of the oem engine gaurds are attached to the lower part of the engine, as in my Tiger. this is not an issue
Rejesh, if there is an engine guard alone, or in combination with tank guard, they lower part usually connects at one or two points to the lower part of crankcase. it is the upper part that you do not want to connect to the upper part of the engine.Thanks Kris!

I talked about it a bit in this thread:how did you crash my man?
I’m 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 :laugh. Thought I’d share my findings in case it would help other riders. Also would like to know from others if I’ve missed anything and where if possibly I could purchase for cheaper – 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. I’m 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. I’m also including best price options from sellers that I was able to find online – 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.

Couldn’t 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?
