B-Twins, BMW Motorrad Special Parts

Hi there

For the first time on the US market we are importing special parts made and designed by B-Twins, a growing Italian brand of special parts for BMW bikes.
This is meant to be a pre-order sale, to see what would be the interest and reaction from the public to these products, before importing and stocking larger quantities.

European orders: we are not able to process European orders but you can order directly from Fabio at B-Twins and ask for shipping quotes and prices in Euros.

ALL US AdvRider orders above 50$ get FREE USPS Priority shipping.
Special prices for Adv riders

You can find prices, conditions and shipping information at the bottom of this post.

Enjoy

CRUISE CONTROL
B-Twins friction type cruise control consists of a simple and effective friction nut that is integral with a special handlebar end weight matching the weight of the OEM unit. Installation simply requires the removal of the OEM bar end weight and the fitting of the B-Twins cruise control in its place.
B-Twins friction nut is billet aluminium, available in red or silver anodized finish, and for ease of use it is wider and it has a lower profile than most of other friction type cruise controls on the market. The main body of the bar end weight is made of steel and powder-coated in black.

Silver: Art. # 404442A05
Red: Art. # 404442R05

RRRAPIDO QUICK ACTION THROTTLE (any R1200 boxer, NOT for R1200RT with electronic cruise control)
Art. # 404442009
RRRAPIDO is B-Twins solution to have a quick action throttle without intervening on the expensive and often heated OEM BMW throttle twist-grip. B-Twins solved the problem by machining a billet aluminium throttle cable splitter pulley that replaces the OEM pulley made of plastic.
With RRRAPIDO installed the throttle twist-grip stroke is circa 12 shorter than stock, it goes from 78 to 66, eliminating any awkward and excessive wrist rotation to accelerate.
With RRRAPIDO you will feel like if your BMW motorcycle is more powerful and accelerates faster, but power will not change. Now you can open the throttle from fully shut to wide open in one single fluid wrist rotation, and this gives you the incredible improvement in throttle response and acceleration.
Our pulley is easy to install and it can be installed on any year BMW R1200 hex-head or cam-head, apart from BMW R1200RT equipped with electronic cruise control.
Following RRRAPIDO installation, throttle bodies synchronisation is required.



OIL COOLER GUARD BMW R1200GS-GS Adv (from 2008 to 2012)
Art. # 404470003
Elegant and sleek, fully CNC machined in a beehive pattern out of AISL 316 stainless steel with a satin finish, our oil cooler guard effectively protects your GS oil cooler from stone chips, bugs and dirt that might damage this delicate and crucial part of your BMW adventure motorcycle. It is easy to clean and very simple to install.



Final drive slider puck
2014 BMW r1200GSW, BMW R1200GS, R1200GS ADV, R1200R, R1200S, R1200RT, R1200ST, HP2 enduro, hp2 megamoto, hp2 sport
Art. # 404436003
Machined out of black Delrin, with an elegant and unobtrusive look and BMW badge, effectively protects the expensive final drive unit of your shaft driven BMW motorcycle.



Quick Shifter kit
BMW R1200GS, R1200GS ADV - All Years
Art. # 404443008
BMW R1200R, R1200ST - All Years
Art. # 404443010
B-Twins quick shifter kit replaces the linkage between shift lever and shift shaft, reducing the shift lever operation angle, reducing ankle rotation and fatigue.
The machined eyelet is elliptical to allow fine-tuning of the operation angle of the shift lever.
Machined out of AISL 316 stainless steel, its quality is compares favourably to the OEM part. Installation is a straight swap with the original so it’s easy and you can do it with basic tools.
With our quick shifter your gearbox will feel more precise and smoother when shifting.



B-Twins Billet Bling Bling
B-Twins billet aluminium parts are designed as an elegant and durable replacement to the OEM black plastic units. They all share the same design pattern and anodized satin silver finish.
Telelever, steering head and frame plugs kits offer protection from the elements and corrosion with a sleek style and unobtrusive look. Each cover is simply but firmly held in place by an O-ring, included in our kits.

Oil filler plug R1200 (9mm hex key included)
Art. # 404434012
B-Twins billet aluminium oil filler plug fits any BMW bike with R1200 boxer engine.
The included 9mm hex key needed to open B-Twins oil filler plug makes it safe and practical because 9mm is not a common hex key size in most tool sets and is not included in the BMW tool set, but in case it is lost you can still replace it and open the oil filler plug

In the pic below you can see a quick shifter for a GS (right) next to the stock linkage of a R1200R





Installation guidelines as requested by Rapid Dog

After measuring and annotating the distance between the shift lever tip and the ground, remove shift lever,
remove safety clip on lower ball joint and disconnect the joint.

Remove the OEM gearchange linkage and undo the ball joint male coupler from it and bolt it on the B-Twins unit.

Installation is reverse of removal.

Adjust or reposition shift lever to the desired or original height.

More detailed instructions with illustrations are included with the quick shifter.

Hi Bruce
unfortunately the only oil cooler grill offered by B-Twins is for R1200GS.
Thanks for your interest anyway.

Ed was good enough to send me a quick shifter and a Rapido quick action throttle pulley to try on my R1200R. I finally got them installed and tried them out today after a long winter. I am really impressed with the quick shifter, really makes the shifting quick and precise. Same with the rapido quick throttle pulley. Makes the bike feel quicker and throttle response is instantaneous. Same power but the feeling is of quicker acceleration. Not so quick that it would be annoying on the highway but a nice improvement in throttle response.
The shifter was very simple to install, no trouble at all. The throttle pulley was easy too but more involved. You need to remove the tank and pop the cover off the throttle cable distribution box and then remove cable ends from the OEM plastic pulley and install them in the replacement aluminum pulley. My bike did not need any throttle synch or adjustments. All in all pretty cool stuff!
