Engine guards/ crash bars
« on: September 14, 2012, 05:27:12 PM »
Folks

Looking for a bit of knowledge and experience to recommend a set of bars.

Didn't bother with the Honda due to the price as Givi and Hepco & Becker bars are about £100 cheaper.

Anyone got any preference between the two or been able to compare them for quality.

Thanks

Mika

I preferred the GIVIs but they`re on backorder for over a month now, so I`m a bit dissappointed....

I ordered the Givis as they have the fog lights to match too.

Deliveries should be coming through shortly as Italy has new re opened after it's Aug shutdown   :001:

Givi look better seem to give better coverage. Hoping my set of bars and spots arrive tomorrow in time for fitting on Tuesday.
Ah the joy of open road on a dry day.. Priceless!!

Just curious chaps, I have a set of Hella Micro DE's that I had on my GS, do you know if the Givi bracket can be used with these as additional lighting might be an option I go for.

I had a Migsel light bar on the GS with Micro and FF50 lights fitted and the light was fantastic

I fitted Givi's back in June, seem to be fine, no harmonics (vibes) and keeping their new look. I think they would give far better protection than others if you dropped the bike.
