Crash Bar or Crash Pad?
« on: June 13, 2012, 09:41:34 AM »
Hi Guys,

I've read in the forum as an alternative to a crash bar is to get a crash pad. I love GSG's product and their crash pad look very nice. Can someone advise what are disadvantages or vice versa.

1. Who protects better?
2. Appearance is based on individual, I love crash guard more. While you can hook up fog light and will look really cool with crash bar, crash pad retain more of the bike look.
4. Price wise is much less the same.
5. Crash guard, GIVI and GSG are available, but couldn't find how the GIVI looks like.
6. Hepco, GIVI, Honda OEM and few others available for crash bar, any news SW Motech will produce theirs?

Here what GSG looks like :





The mount point is used by most crash bar. You can google H&B crash bar in they image search, it look just as the same as the Honda OEM.

For fog light, you can try the more economical  Hella MicroDE for the fog light, it's the one use by Touratech for GS. Price is around RM 460 (SGD $186) but of course, in Singapore it is much cheaper. I think it's a very good value for money.

The slider looks good and would be quite effective "sliding" along tarmac but on tracks and rocky stuff they wouldn't protect as much as bars.
As I wouldn't plan to fall off on tar too often, but knowing me I may well have a few drops on tracks, fields, grass, I reckon the bars would give me more protection for the bike, and will cope on tarmac as well.
Just my thoughts folks!
