These Rear Guard Bars are designed to work in conjunction with our 26-500BL Engine Guard Bars with 19-500BL Highway Pegs to offer the best overall protection for your 2018 and up K1600 BAGGER / GRAND AMERICA in the event of a drop or tip over. These can also be used in conjunction with other manufacturer’s engine guard bars as well. These bars are constructed of heavy wall (1” X .120” ) steel tubing and TIG welded to 7 ga. cold rolled steel brackets. After shot blasting with stainless steel media, these bars are powder coated for a durable and trouble free finish in Satin Black for a subtle look. Carefully designed to help protect your expensive panniers and mufflers, these minimalist design bars will not interfere with passenger comfort or the clean lines of your K1600 Bagger.
