Eeyore from ADVRider.com wrote a review of the product on May 10 2005:

I dropped my BMW F650GS a couple of times and the F650GS/Dakar is even taller so I thought it would be wise to install some kind of engine / fairing guard or crash bars before I ventured too far off pavement.

The Hepco-Becker bars appear to be functional and effective but I just don’t care for the way they look on the bike. The BMW OEM engine guard doesn’t appear to provide any protection to the upper areas of the engine and the fairing and doesn’t look too good to me either. Touratech makes a lower engine guard and an upper fairing guard which look good to me but I wasn’t happy with the way they mount…the end of the Touratech fairing guard “floats” and isn’t physically connected to anything.

People have used all of the above and have been perfectly satisfied with them but I decided to try the SW-Motech crash bars [gee…I wish they would call them engine guards… crash bars seem to conjure up bad juju].

The instructions consist of a diagram showing an “exploded” view of the bars and how they are mounted on one side of the bike. There is some German text but from what I could tell it was only a “congratulations you have purchased a guality product etc.” kind of message. Many of those words weren’t covered in my two semesters of German 16 years ago. Ich vergesse…..

I had to improvise a little and spent a couple of hours going back and forth to each side up and down on the stool on the ground tightening here loosening there being bitten by the ants in the driveway getting sunburned and dehydrated [first day over 90 degrees here] etc etc. Having a bike stand and/or some assistance would have sure made the installation go smoother.

There isn’t much info on these bars on The Chain Gang so I thought I would share these pics. I hope I never have to test their effectiveness but I have to assume that I will at some point given the “no speed” drops I experienced with my previous BMW F650GS.
