Anybody know the diameter of the OEM crashbars? I want to see if my machinist buddies can fab some light brackets up before my bars come in. Thanks!

Touratech bars
 
Just curious as to why no one is going with the TT bars? Do they seem weaker or uglier or what's the deal? I thought they made pretty tough stuff usually....

Availability, I'd be guessing. I waited months for mine before cancelling and going with the SW-Motech's.

Adv-Spec
 
My Adv-Spec bars arrive today!

I am planning to install tomorrow. Will put pictures up (i have the Bash plate as well).

My Adventure Spec bars also arrive today. it took a month...but i am exited to get them fit this weekend

GOROVN 11-26-2008 02:30 PM

Adventure Specs Arrived and are installed...Note the Touratech skid plate and oil filter protector...I guess Adventure-Spec is saying if use their crash bar you have to get their skid plate as well. Since i already had this i figured i would experiment. It seems to work just fine.

Crash Bars
 
Wondering has anyone used the SW Motech bars? And possibly have pictures of them installed with a frontal view?

Thanks
Mike

Installed my Wunderlichs earlier this evening. Somebody tell me about this if you know. They have Hebco-Becker logos on all the product info which came with the bars. Made by H-B for Wund?

These were the only ones I saw so far which mounted so far back and also to the lower engine case. Install took a bit of push & pull to line up the holes then I saw it had hung up on the kickstand on that side which gave it just a bit of a skew, tossing it just off. The instructions guide you to do everything else first & come to those mounts last, so that is why I missed it till the end. No biggie though.
Also added the rear fender hugger or whatever you call it from Wund also.

This was a small challenge due to a couple of the screws being in such tight areas and the instructions being in everything but english.

I'll try to get some daylight photos tomorrow.
