On the occasion of the company's 35th anniversary, Wunderlich presented various campaigns and components last year. The highlight of the EDITION 35 projects were undoubtedly the two sensational interpretations of the R 1250 GS, which Wunderlich simply referred to as EDITION 35 # 1 and # 2. They are based on the current BMW R 1250 GS. The BMW specialists have designed both machines in the exclusive EDITION 35 color scheme. The character of the two GS couldn't be more different: The Ringeners characterized # 1 as a super enduro and # 2 as a striking super athlete! You have not only explored the maximum range of options for the conversion with the in-house components that are possible with the professional conversion of a GS, but also marked out the exciting antipodes of the GS world.
for BMW R 1250 Shiftcam Boxer
Both concept bikes are equipped with the successful valve cover and cylinder protectors "EXTREME". The popular protective components, which have enjoyed an excellent reputation as effective and innovative protectors for the 2019 Shiftcam Boxer models since their presentation at EICMA 1250, are now available in the EDITION 35 variant: They are characterized by the exclusive design with integrated stainless steel inlay in EDITION 35 blue.
The cylinders of a boxer BMW are exposed. Rockfall, a fall over in the field, an unfortunate slip or if you strip a plastered wall when maneuvering in close proximity, there is a slight risk of scratching the valve cover. In the case of the 1250 Shiftcam motors, there is also the fact that the construction of the Shiftcam mechanism is extremely complex. Since the valve covers are only mounted in a force-fit manner, there is a risk that the valve cover will move relative to the cylinder head in the event of any force and possibly affect the expensive valve drive. Therefore, the additional protection of the valve cover is of particular importance. Wunderlich has developed a set of well thought-out protectors for this. These are characterized by the fact that they fit tightly with the contour of the valve cover with a narrow gap. This requires the precision in production and processing that one can expect from Wunderlich.
The protector is made of impact-resistant, hard-wearing plastic. On the inside facing the valve cover, segments with a high-temperature-resistant elastic material have been structurally integrated. With regard to their Shore hardness *, these segments are dimensioned to be shock-absorbing. When external forces occur, their equally supportive and protective effect ensures that they are evenly absorbed and distributed over the segments and thus force peaks are reliably reduced, if not avoided at all. The high-quality design and the function of the protectors are rounded off by an embedded stainless steel insert. In the exclusive EDITION 35 it is executed in blue. In addition to its function as a design element, it also serves as a protective element in the worst-case scenario in order to prevent the valve cover from being dragged through and the inevitably associated oil loss. In this way, the protectors help prevent secondary damage. In many cases, they allow you to continue your journey unhindered after a mishap. The assembly is easy with the enclosed assembly kit.
The valve cover & cylinder protectors are compatible with the standard BMW valve covers on all R 1250 Shiftcam boxers. Wunderlich offers the high-quality special edition for both cylinders at a price of € 239,00, with a 5-year guarantee.
