While the BMW F 800 GS is an impressive adventure machine the placement of the exhaust and weak plastic guard have been a regular complaint from riders. The design of the stock guard makes it incredibly easy to catch on a pair of pants while doing any serious riding - resulting in a broken guard and possibly melted pants.
The AltRider Rear Exhaust Guard is laser cut from 1/8 inch (3.2 mm) aluminium -- substantially stronger than the stock plastic piece. The AltRider guard mounts with the OEM hardware and installs in minutes. Intelligently designed for coverage the rear exhaust guard prevents a hot exhaust pipe from ruining your pants or boots.
