Something to consider when choosing a crash bar...the accessory bag size, Hepco and Becker has the largest bar opening and thus the largest bag size.
These are the bag sizes compared to each other.
H&B 5.7 liters
SW Motech 5.3 liters
OEM 3.9 liters
Yeah, I'm definitely happy with them. Thanks again.
As for all this debating back and forth I can agree with different points of view and see the validity of the arguments. Except the weight thing. Both my bars and the cross-over bar together can't weigh more than 8lbs. If you're that concerned about a couple of pounds down low on the bike wear lighter boots or skip the double cheeseburger. With a bike as big and heavy as this (for a dirt bike anyways, still pathetically light compared to a cruiser) you're really not making any change with those bars.
