Heel Guards - Same Fit as S1000RR?
« on: June 24, 2018, 07:03:42 PM »
I'm looking to purchase some carbon fibre heel guards for my XR but very few companies seem to sell XR specific heel guards. Does anyone know if the S1000RR heel guards fit the XR?

Unfortunately they do not fit.
I found that only Ilmberger does Carbon Heel Guards. Where did you find the others?

But at €99.90 each I think this is far too expensive especially as you can get a pair of S1000RR heel guards for £49 per pair here: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Zero-Limits-BMW-S1000RR-09-14-Heel-Plates-Guards-Style-2-in-Carbon-Fibre/371837469662?hash=item56933d83de:g:JA4AAOSwo4pYSVHZ

I have even seen some as cheap as £32 a pair!

The Wunderlich & Hornig ones are from Ilmberger. :)
You are right - the prices are horrendous if you look at the prices of the S1000R & RR

Plus they're just covers, you stick them over the stock aluminium heel guards....so their claims of "weight savings" are a little "exagerated".

I have this covers - after 5-10 rides they are scuffed. But look very good on the other side, when they are ok.
The other guards for sure do not fit the XR.
