Hello Team:

I did a search but I only found information for the Wetheads.

Illium does not make engine guards for the 2010-2013 models. Only the ones for the rear.

Any other options besides the Wunderlich bars?

Thank you very much.

Hi - I use the ones from National Cycle on my 2012 R1200 RT

Great quality & finish.

With a little maneuvering, you can take off the valve covers, when you adjust the valves without removing them.

And unfortunately they have been tested at a slow stop and not a scratch.

They are pricey though.

Give ZTechnik's bars a look.

You don't have to remove them to get the valve covers or the body panels off, they go on/off easily with three bolts, you can mount any 1" highway peg bracket, and they have a boss for additional lights.

I have them on my 2012. Ztechnik, easy maintenance. Look nice and not very difficult to install.

The illium works folding foot pegs will, in fact, hit the ground long before the jugs.

Great information! Thank you very much.

The Ztechnik guards look the best and very inconspicuous. Not sure if I am reading the instruction right but the only issue is that they attach to the cylinder head on the right side and the oil line holder screw in the left side?

Can someone confirm this?

Yes, those are two of the six attachment points. You will find the screw for the oil line bracket is substantial. Two other attachment points are on the front of the cylinders and the main ones are two large bolts into the lower engine case.

Did have a pretty serious crash with these bars on my '10 RT. ZTechnik replaced the bent one charging only for shipping and the bars protected the bike's engine. Replaced a lot of plastic and rode the bike another 50K miles.

I have the Ztechnik crash bars mounted on my 2012 RT. They have performed well after two tip overs in 4 years . They look good as well. One down side is ,the side case will make contact with ground but the engine is protected.
