I have had some requests for the tip-over bars I made for my K16. I made these myself because the offerings out there are not visually appealing to me, too big for the purpose, and would interfere with the passengers legs and/or be an annoyance at least. I am posting to gauge interest in the initial run of 6 sets of these tip-over bars. 2 sets are spoken for, so 4 sets are available for pre-order. The kit will include the bars ready to bolt on, primed and painted (5 total coats), the hardware needed (BMW bolts, spacers, washers) and a basic installation guide. It’s very simple and quick to do. These bars will protect the expensive side cases in a garage tip over without the problem of interfering with the pillions legs while moving.
Touch up of the spray paint, if needed, will be easy. I used 2 coats of Rustoleum primer and then 3 coats Rustoleum Industrial flat black , easiest to touch up, on mine, but I can do any color they make if you let me know and as long as I can find it at Lowes or Home Depot. I have laid my bike over on them and they hold the weight and keep anything expensive from touching the ground. Bear in mind, I have the Wunder engine protection bars. I do think engine bars of any kind are necessary to protect the engine and the auxiliary LEDs if you have them. I am going to use a slightly thicker wall on the square tubing than used on mine. I blew a small hole in mine welding the thinner square to the thicker round. The thicker steel will alleviate any issue.
I don’t have a production line to do these so I will fit all of them to my bike and verify they fit right without any interference of the side case opening or the whole case being removed. I have started gathering supplies to start making these as I have 2 orders already and hope to have these within a few weeks. If you are interested or have any questions, let me know.
The initial run of these, ready to install, will be $250.00 plus shipping. Thank you

Updated list and color:
Total with USPS flat rate box with insurance equals $272.00 Thank you. Tim

C4 & I have been in communication about these for a while. I am one of the 2 sets already spoken for. My wife would have trouble with the Wunder sets, as she is height challenged. Am looking forward to getting , & installing them, as we have a 10K, 8 week trip planned starting the last week of this May.

looks like it works perfect, do you have any pictures showing the bike sitting up so I can see how they look normally on the bike with the side cases

Jerry, I'll be starting a second run in a couple weeks or so. Thank you
Thanks but it will most likely be end of summer before all the other demands get taken care of.

Please keep me posted if you continue to make these.
