Purchased a set of the hepco and becker bars this afternoon, should be here by next week just in time to test out for the winter rally. Not a bad price aswell considering the price it would cost to replace/repair fairing. Next on the to do list is a pipe get rid of the standard p.o.s that is on it at the moment

I got a staintune pipe for mine and it is about half the the wieght of the stock one, about $615.00. Very sweet looking and sounding but I haven't had a test ride yet. The H B crash bar are on the to do list as well.

Anyone got the the Hepco Becker rear luggage mounts? any good? got something better? made your own? I would like to see the different types.

Crash bars

Hey man, where did you order the bars through? I'm looking for some and that seems a good price.

I slapped these up a couple of years ago. They are made from 12mm solid bar, they dont look as flash as some I've seen but came up alright and they cost me $12.




I've had them loaded up to the hilt quite a few times with no dramas.




I figured for $12 if they broke when I was testing them out around town I'd just buy some flash ones but they are still as good as new.

I like your work mate. I was thinking about using 10mm round bar and attaching them to the Ventura rack that came with the bike. Buy doing this the whole luggage rack can be removed in one piece.

What did you use to bend the solid bar, a proper bender or something more DIY ?

You know after reading your post I couldnt remember wheather I used 10 or 12mm, out with the vernier and they are 10mm.

I just used my vice to bend them but it took a bit of ginnin around to get a nice uniformed bend so i just practiced with a few measurments on some scrap and once I worked out how much material went into each bent it was easy as.

They come off in one piece with ease in about 5 minutes with four bolts ( pillion pegs and the rear rack bolts ) and they really are strong and solid as, It'd probably take a fair bit more to bend them in a stack than tube I would imagine.

I meant to powder coat them but put a nice coat of black on to prevent any rust but, you know how it is the paint's still there I'll rip em off one day and get them coated.

So I better not show him any pics of the half built crash bars I've done then.

They are 12mm not 10. I've done an exact copy of the Hepco & Becker bars, I've only done one side and they are strong as BUT, no matter how hard I try to love them, the diameter of the steel is just too thin compared with the H&B tube jobs.

I've also slapped up a nice looking headlight cover out of the same material but 4 or 6mm with some mesh. I have'nt painted or mounted it yet but when I finish them off I'll stick a couple of pics up.
