Happy new year, inmates!
Thanks for making 2013 a great year for us at ADV Motorrad...we're looking forward to getting you fully outfitted for more adventures in 2014.
We got a sneak peek at some new upper crashbars that are being developed by DS Bike Protection. These will bolt to (and require the use of) the OEM Yamaha crashbar/engine guard, but do a really nice job for protecting the radiator, plastics, and other parts you'd rather not replace if your bike takes a nap. The bars mount to the frame at the rear and use a heavy duty clamp to mount to the Yamaha lower crashbars.
To set expectations, these are just the prototypes to gauge fitment and adjust as necessary; the finished pieces will be fully mitered and finish welded, and powdercoated versus the quickie spraybomb black. I expect these will come available in the next 4-6 weeks and will add a product page to our site when they are in final production and we're ready for pre-orders.
Any questions in the meantime, please let me know.
