Hi
I have some of these, not put them on yet, as you have to take all the bolts out to fit them.  Just beware, as the torque settings on these bolts are quite low.  Check with your dealer (I did but have forgot the actual settings).

Cheers Mark.

6061-T6 Billet Aluminium is pretty good quality for this sort of product, so that's a good find as it's amazing value.

Noticed they are from China so just hoping it really is 6061-T6 and not one of the cheaper grades of billet.   :028:

Hopefully Ill never have reason to test them out but thought it was worth a punt at that money

Yep Id say the engine bars would without doubt be better but these will help protect the engine casings as they were meant to

Unless that stuff is made out of good quality Ti and at that price I doubt it probably more like camel sh#t,might save it if it fell off the side stand and even then I'd have my doubts

I'll digress!! till I chucked my old 955 down the road I'm as guilty as the next man for treating crash bars as bling,then suddenly realised that who ever designed them at Touratech made sure that when the bike was down the handle bars where off the floor.
Having seen the crash video and had a look at how they were bolted onto the bike it was a one horse race for me hence the BM ones.
