Givi Engine crash Bars
« on: February 10, 2017, 04:59:59 PM »
 Hi guys and lady's I was hoping that someone can help I'm wanting to fit some givi engine crash bars,  :305: as after doing a lot of web searching they seem to be the only ones I've seen that protect the fairing as well..........

Put SW-Motech on mine, looks to me they will protect the fairings too.

I installed the SW-Motech bars and dropped my bike.  It protected the plastics and even the front turn signal didn't touch the ground.  A little black touch-up paint on the bar and a new hand guard outer piece ($20) and it was good as new.

I'm tempted to get the BMW bars on my next bike, and get them powder coated black, to blend in more. Someone fitted aftermarket bars, dropped the bike and had a real struggle getting a payout from BMW when the bike was written off, so I'd only go with original bars, personally.

Wasn't until I/we fell off our Tiger that I had a different view on crash bars as in 'are they going to work' I looked at all of them and went for the BM option all the other versions looked like scoops if they where sliding down the road to me.

If your a mechanical numpty I'd pay to have them fitted they require some cutting of the black plastic done from the reverse side with the right tool,I did the one side then sent for a diamond disc for my Dremmel for the second side which worked really well as in cut the plastic as opposed to melted it.

I can't say anything about the Givi bars for the S1000XR but I've read several complaints about them bending on the Super Tenere. Of course, the S10 guys tend to drop their bikes a lot when they are off-road and they are not light bikes.

I had Altrider skid plate and crash guards on my S10 and they were STOUT. I never dropped the bike to test them but I've seen plenty of positive reports from those that have.

The SW Motech bars have a good reputation too as being well made.

Was the fitting an easy job? Did you have to remove or cut anything away to fit them?

They look good and I hope to get a set.

Just seen the Puig engine bars.

Has anybody any experience of these compared to the SW?

The Puig ones look as if they may actually protect a little better.

I just looked at the Puig site and they only have the bungs listed. Have you got a link to the engine bars?
