Thanks in advance,

I think he's specifying frame-mounted engine bars DoWorkSon.

Hey Gary,

There are only two I'm aware of: the original Touratech's you mention and Wunderlich Adventure bars.

That being said the more common engine mounted ones haven't proved to be a problem from what I've seen. Only one report of engine mount damage (not the case) over the years and that appeared to be from being broad sided by a car (he bought a used bike). It was repaired fairly easily.

There are a few engine bar threads to read reviews on what riders think of them as DoWorkSon.said. Google or search.

Moto Overland [MOD] -Skid Plates, Top racks, Tool Boxes etc for Adventure bikes
