Not exactly local, but the prices are hot  :thumleft:

That is the BMW headlight guard and will most probably only be available from a BMW agent, or second hand from someone who has replaced it with something else.

Genuine BMW product that is illegal to use on roads, apparently only for off road use !!
It really is a ^%@&% to fit or you can pay BMW R500 to fit..

If I'm not mistaken the LED cooler sits below the headlight.......not sure if its such a great idea to restrict air flow below the headlight? But then again my one had a stone fly up and break the housing below the headlight :eek7: P.S. we hit a swarm of bees in the Karroo that's why the bike was so dirty.... :lol8:

I thought about that but then realised 3 things.
1.) It still have some gaps underneath (Check the pic you will see there are gaps each side underneath for air)
2.) I have a Trophy model, so no LED and cooler.
3.) It's BMW Branded (i.e BMW logo and they sell them) and will ask them to fit it at my service coming up, so they will do it properly and I guess would tell me if there was an issue.
Don't apologize for a dirty bike. It means you are riding it.
