Engine/crash bars - who’s fitted what
« on: February 21, 2018, 11:05:47 AM »
Considering fitting ‘bars and would like to know who’s fitted what and their opinion of the product they bought :-
Ease of fit, quality and value for money, and just how robust they are/appear ?
Thanks

I had the Ducati crash bars fitted from new but when I first saw my bike with them fitted I immediately regretted it as they spoiled the look. They also make it harder to clean the bike. Don't know how much protection they offer and I hope not to find out  :155: They are good quality though and have stood up to the ravages of salty roads so far.
If I knew what I was doing I would probably stop doing it.

Know what you mean, bought mine with touring pack and considered Enduro kit at the same time but it’s just so bloody gorgeous I didn’t want to spoil the bikes looks 🙄 but then again I don’t want to spoil them in other ways either.  If I don’t fit bars and then prang it 😱
The alternative is to fit R&G all over the place but I also want to fit auxiliary lights as main beam isn’t the best 🤔

Thank you for the replies - was going to post images of my ‘Rubi’ but system didn’t want to recognise me ☹️
