These bars provide a cross connection between both sides of the bike for an extra stable hold and great rigidity. Zieger’s method of attachment to original mounting points on the bike ensure that no fairing parts need to be changed or modified and optimal protection of important motorcycle components. Zieger bars are formed from 27mm OD tubing with a strong 1.5mm wall thickness. Thanks to CNC-tube bending Zieger can ensure a perfect fit and easy assembly.

While upper fairing bars protect the fairing and tank and can be combined with the Zieger engine bars. Both styles are available in 6 different colors: Black, silver, white, red, blue, and orange to color coordinate with your bike’s paint scheme. (not all colors available for every bike model.

The aluminum plates are 3mm thick with accenting slots and holes that enhance the aesthetic design and provide plenty of air circulation to your engine. The powdercoated plates are available in your choice of black, or silver, with some special order models offering factory paint scheme enhancing colors. Best of all, Zieger skidplates attach to the existing motorcycle mounting points for an easy installation and they are compatible with the vehicle’s original centerstand or Zieger Centerstands.
