    SW Motech crash bars and Honda OEM wind deflectors.

    Has anybody mounted the SW Motech crash bars with the Honda OEM wind deflectors, P/N 08R70-MGH-J20. I suspect these two parts are incompatible. I have the wind deflectors installed from Honda and the SW Motech light mounts. No other crash bar will work with those light mounts other than the SW Motech.

    Thanks

    I don't think you have them, look at the top where the transition line is.

    I like the luggage paint, it looks good. I may end up with the factory bars and just adapt my sliders to the mount point and use both. Did you paint or Powdercoat your bars?

    He DOES have them. Your enlargement verifies it. I compared it to mine with the deflectors. You can see the extra piece at the top and also at the bottom.

    I think you are right, I enlarged his photo, the angle of the image makes it hard to see. Adjust the contrast you can see the joinery.
