I too would like to know about the engine bars and whatever else you've added to the bike. Is there only one size of Touratech pannier available for the bike? (I know that left and right are different sizes.)

I've been thinking of the Zega Pro panniers in black, but even the aluminum looks good with the Kalamata. The screen looks like it might be tinted... that's not the standard screen, is it?

Looks like you have fitted Touratech everywhere.

How do you like the bike?
not my bike..... haha

BUT yes its a 2013. bmw engine bars with touratech uppers soon to be released.... couple different sizes of panniers avalible...

but I love pelican cases and soft bags... I will NEVER have alu panniers ever again....

Touratech's mains and uppers on my Trophy. Haven't had to test them out yet. I'm sure the additional radiator protection will come in handy, one day.

Wink Rad protection

Had my first spill this morning coming off a graveyard shift and decided to take a trail before hitting the hay. Dropped my Trophy with SW Motech's. They protected exactly at radiator level. They did there job and it seems to me any protection that didn't cover rad wouldn't be justified. A thought.

I can't read all 32 pages, but here is my question. Does anyone make a crash bar that DOES NOT bolt into the lower bosses just above the oil pan? My engine case was damaged because of the stress on that boss from a crash. pk

Crash Bars

Yes, you want the Touratech ones. The bolt to the frame, not the motor, but are kind of a pain to install as you have to remove the rear brake pedal and install some spacers, and other parts, but offer great protection.

I gave up

After some time looking for it on internet and here in this thread I realized I need your help guys: where can I buy those adventure spec crash bars other than in UK? Thing is to import them from USA is easier than to do it from UK (tax and shipment issues).

So, is there anyone in USA selling them?

Thanks a lot.

Arjones.

I haven't been able to find any one in the states that sells them. Shipping is only $45 US to MN for them.

Questions:
How tall are the riders who are hitting their knees? I'm 6'2" 218 and really like those bars for their coverage. Anyway someone could take a pic showing how close they are?

However, those TT ones shown on that 2013 have caught my eye as well. Has anyone heard word on them? Cost? Etc?

I'm new here but this is why I'm looking for crash bars. I was messing around in a dirt lot getting used to the bike/weight/behavior in diet when I popped the throttle a bit hard and the front tire wedged...



Hand guards worked!

answered my own question... those uppers that wrap around are only for the 2013 models...

and just that piece (need lower portion as well to mount them) is almost expensive and adv spec.

Why it's not compatible with a F800GS year 2009 ?

Maybe a small modification can be done do adapt this crash bar on an older F800gs?

Thank you

I fail to see any mechanical advantage to having the cross support pass forward of the forks and under the beak like that. Is it going to reduce the permanent deflection of the guards if the bike is dropped on its side?

Well, i know for an unfortunate fact that if the bike lowsides ... the radiator will take a hit and break off its little mounting tabs without the upper part and i dont see how the upper bars could support the impact without going through to the other side under the beak.

Bars

If those bars actually bolt to the underside of the beak I wouldn't touch them with a twenty foot pole. In a big drop the bars are going to move. Mine have bent to the left and then back to the right. So now they look pretty straight! If they need to move that fragile front end is going to break and cost you a lot of money. I'm using the AdventureSpec bars and my rad is unmolested and I have had many drops/crashes.
