    Crash bars with spot lights

     I’ve got my bike(2020) coming on Saturday, and as you can imagine , I’m spending a fortune on accessories, so I’m looking at crash protection at the moment , so I like the look of the Givi crash bars as they look like they are quite tight to the bike, not so intrusive, but I would like to know if they fit with spot lights fitted and what it looks like, so if anyone has done this , is there any chance of posting a couple of pics from a couple of different angles , would really appreciate it, in fact pics of other brands would be good as well, in case I’ve missed something,
    Thanks guys

    I hope you find what you're looking for, but I'd be surprised. I looked around when I was shopping and there was little to none out there on 2020- stuff. Covid-19 seems to have slowed down the after market quite a bit.

    Remember one problem of putting spotlights on crash bars is if you crash :) Probably worth making sure they are not going to get crushed if you drop the bike.

    There’s an educational video on YouTube by Cuban Rider accidentally demonstrating the factory crash bars, not the prettiest but turned out to be highly effective when he threw it down the road. I got them fitted on my Gen 1 within a month  :020:

    Just in case you’re weighing up different options....
    Not personally qualified to confuse cats, but I can recommend an extremely good service.

    That is a very good point, hadn’t even thought about that :460:

    Two separate issues with bars and lights, can’t help with the latter, but Cuban Riders vid right at the start of this forum proved what works when you bike is skating down the road probably without you on it....
