Another useful part to optimise your R1200GS for off road use. Because you can't go far with your new GS if you've got a faulty battery. In its original state stones and mud can be slung directly from the back wheel onto the battery and damage the battery housing and make it very dirty in bad cases. The worst of this is prevented with this spray guard. It is very quick and easy to fit. You can still get to the battery easily. This part is made of stainless steel. All the necessary fitting materials are included.
