R1150GS Hepco Becker guards
 
I've been recently looking for Hepco Becker engine guards for a 1150GS and everybody seems to have them on back order.
Anyone knows any place that has them on stock? Or any used ones up for sale ?
Thanks!

Nope, i had the same problem. Not many places will keep parts for 7-11 year old bikes in stock if they don't have to. Just order 'em and wait

find me a used ADV tank or a used Touratech tank and I'll sell you my HB uppers and lowers for a GS.

At a nice price.

They show 1 in stock
 
No affiliation, but I used to look at this site for parts ideas.
They show 1 in stock.

Good luck.

1150 crash bars
 
Hello

I just bought an 01 1150GS and ordered aset this week from amotostuff.com $ 277 + S&H

Google them........
 
I have been doing the research for R1150 GSA crash bars... and find GS crash Bars everywhere...

Ebay and on all the usual parts sites..

I personally settled on the SW-Motech crash bars.. Better than the Hepco Beckers.. Don't have to take anything apart to adjust the valves and change oil etc.

AND $209 at Twisted throttle I think...

There are a lot of posts here on the forum about GS crash bars..

I have them on my bike and like them, don't love them. You have to loosen (not remove) them up for valve adjustments.

Not a good picture, but if this bolt comes out to far.. good luck getting it back in without aligning the planets. For this reason, I'd rather have the SW Motech bars.

I have the SW-Motek bars .They work and you don't have to take them apart to adjust the valves . They work well . Try Motostrano .They are less than Twisted Throttle and you get a break on shipping by being an ADV inmate .Touratech offers stainless bars which are really nice .

Within the last month, I bought a set from Amotostuff.com. I called them directly and they had a set in stock which they promptly shipped. Very nice to deal with and the bars went on perfect!:clap

SW-Motek
 
Going to order the SW-Motek bars w the footpeg's etc. I am thinking.. But.... Cost is then up to almost $400.00

Anyone have these and maybe a pic so I can see what they look like and where they are positioned..

There is also a German clamp on set of footpeg's on eBay for $129.00 Might be the better way to go..

I tried to find a set on their site but was unable.. What was your total cost, if you don't mind my asking.. thx

I had better luck calling when I was ready to buy.....they were friendly and easy to deal with. Plus I was able to confirm that they actually had one and it wasnt back ordered. Total price was $349 shipped to NY. Like I said installation was quick and painless; I did some reading on the site.....one inmate has a pretty good step by step with photos and tips. Good luck:deal

I am seeing them at Twisted for $209.00 Did you get the footpeg brackets or?? to run up the cost or was shipping that much??

Shipping was $49. I did a bunch of research and decided on the HB bars and I'm very pleased with them.
