You were able to get the Altrider bars to fit your 2013. I got a used set from some one in the flea market. They don't fit. I looked on the Alt rider website and looks like they have a new design for my 2013.

Are your bars for the 2013 or old bars you made work on a 2013.

Any opinions on Altrider crashbars vs. Adventure Spec crash bars?

And here's the left side. Shifted a little, but still plenty of protection. Pivot pegz, 2 touratechs and a MOD skid plate.

Again, solid piece of work that covers high up enough and protects not only the engine, but the fairing. And when you do drop it and it shifts... good luck. Those things are solid and won't accordion, but shift right-left (or vice versa)
