CHAM, Germany - Hornig is now marketing a conversion kit for the BMW R 1200 GS as well as updated fender extensions for a variety of BMW models.

The company’s BMW R1200GS LC 2013 conversion kit showcases several Hornig parts that provide additional safety and comfort. Customers pick and choose among the parts and buy only what they want.  

A Nautilus horn comes with a stainless steel mount, wiring kit and BMW plug.

A crash bar can be combined with a fairing crash bar. Hornig’s Cardan crash protector and oil filler plug, which can be opened only with tools, provide additional security.

A side-stand foot enlargement can be combined with a side-stand heightening part.

Cooler and air intake grids help reduce cleaning.

Hornig uses aluminum milling and lathe parts to cover the holes of the R 1200 GS’s frame. Examples include a rear wheel hub cover and the suspension mounting covers.

A handlebar bag provides storage space.

More power reportedly comes from the Remus HexaCone Titanium exhaust system with a removable dB-eater.

Other parts in the conversion kit include mirror extensions, a GPS Mounting over the speedo (for Garmin and TomTom with special adapters), and a carbon fiber side fairing.

Hornig also offers a seat-altering service in which consumers mail their saddles the company. “We build a complete new core, adjusted to your needs, weight and size, and we cover your seat with a special leather that will make sure that you stay always at the same place,” the company explains.

Another Hornig product for the R 1200 GS and a variety of other BMW models is a new version of the company’s Extenda Fender mudguard enlargement, which is intended to help keep clean the engine, the manifold and other parts of the motorcycle.

Customers glue the Mudguard Extender to the original front mudguard and secure it with screws. The new version includes black rivets for a better and cleaner finish.
