'11 GS with BMW aluminum valve covers protectors and OEM crash bar?

Folks-

While checking the valves on my '11 GS, it apparenlty had took a shot from something on the freeway directly to the underside of the right valve cover. Put a serious divot in it and I was surprised the cover sealed up after I was done. I now see the values of those OEM aluminum valve cover protectors- not from a fall, but from debris hits.

However, I have OEM crash bars, and Max' web site has a message the the aluminum valve covers are "NOT IS CONJUNCTION WITH CRASH BARS". The funny thing is that the show a picture of the aluminum protectors installed with at least, some brand of crash bars.



Does anyone know if the BMW aluminum valve cover protectors fit with the OEM BMW crash bars on a 2011 GS?

Thanks-

B.

Seems like a reasonable question. I think these take a bigger impact, and they DO fit with OEM crash bars...

Yes, OEM covers and OEM crashbars fit fine.

How can they say this, given that the ADV comes with the OEM crash bars and aluminum cylinder covers?

And if by any chance they're referring to the plastic cylinder covers, that works too, I run them with the OEM crash bar on my GS-not-A
