Fine Carbon Fiber Upgrades

When Ilmberger takes care of upgrading motorcycles like the BMW K1300R and the K1300S, the results are performance enhancing. There is hardly a single area on the motorcycle that does not benefit technically and visually from the wide range of top quality carbon fiber components made by Ilmberger Carbonparts of Germany.

There’s no better way to underscore the natural charisma of exceptional bikes like the BMW K1300S and K1300R than upgrading them with fine Ilmberger carbon parts. While highlighting the S’s sporting credentials, on the naked R version they accentuate its copious muscle even at a standstill. Now, Ilmberger offers a wide range of carbon components for both bikes.

In an effort to accommodate diverse rider preferences, the carbon fiber experts offer several parts in two different versions. For example, the rear light cover for both bikes is available with or without cutouts for pillion grab rails. And when developing an additional, shortened belly pan for the K1300S, Ilmberger had riders in mind who refuse to miss out on the benefits of a centre stand despite all the sporting credentials.

Ilmberger even caters for those who intend to keep their bikes stock as far as possible while not completely dismissing a few subtle styling cues – besides a complete carbon fiber front fairing for the K1300S, the range also includes small headlight covers and fairing inserts that let you retain the stock main fairing. All parts are made of 100 percent carbon, manufactured exclusively by autoclaving and finished with a clear plastic coating.

All Ilmberger carbon parts meant for road use are certified street legal and come with type approval documentation. Order and contact forms as well as further information are found online at
