MachineArt, designers of specialised accessories and add-ons for BMW motorcycles, have designed an all new MudSling® rear mudguard for the R1200GS and Adventure LC models.
Although the GS comes with a rear mudguard as standard, its small surface area offers only minimal protection against mud, stones and water spray flung up by the rear wheel. Injection moulded in tough polypropylene, to match the 1200’s other plastic part surfaces, the MudSling® increases the surface area of the standard guard by up to 75mm each side, and by almost 180mm downwards, offering significantly more protection for the rear shock and paralever arm.
The wide design also helps prevent crud being thrown onto the rider’s legs, and keeps the under seat area cleaner. Precision cut to fit the existing guard and frame perfectly, the MudSling® requires no drilling and can also be fitted to bikes with lowered suspension.
