    I've not got my VFRx yet, but from what I've seen so far, the Givi looks like the one I will get. Best get the bike first though  :047:

    I like the look of Hepco Becker. It’s on my shopping list :169:

    I bought a Hepco Becker for my 2014 DCT and its a fabulous bit of kit. Fitting tolerances and quality are really good. It has bars to support the front that replace the spacers on the engine mount bolts which make it all very solid. I had a little trouble with my engine bolt removal to fit these but nothing serious, more just my apprehension and paranoia.  You need to remove it to do oil changes but its just 4 small screws. I chose this because it was well recommended here and was a good price compared to others. I also considered that it offered higher protection on the exhaust. 5*

    Cheers guys.........whilst Givi are generally good they are not alway the best. I still have their big foot to fit.

    Looks like the HB has the votes so far, not sure if Adventure Spec do one.

    Oh well better google for some best prices
