One of our customers put together a nice little “Photo-Blog” of his install to see it follow this link.

    They work


    So I bought these crash bars back in 2013. Today I finally got them installed.

    So first the instructions are not great they only show one side of the bike and give minimal details. That being said I still managed to find all the attachment points without much trouble. The main problem I had was that the quality control on these was not the greatest.

    So the first time I tried to install these it appeared to me that there was no way I could get them on. The bracket which the U-bolt attaches to on the right side was welded on pretty wonky. I tried for several hours and could not for the life of me get it to fit the bike. I contacted Twisted throttle and they said send them some pictures and they would ship me a new set. Mind you this was a year after I had first purchased them, props to Twisted throttle I have had nothing but good experience with their customer service!

    So I ended up moving and being busy for a year or two and finally figured I would just grind out the welds and re-weld the bracket then I would have crash bars.

    Before I did all that though I decided to try one more time to install the bars as is. Well I did it and the secret was to get the U-bolts started FIRST then do the other attachment points. So success I finally have crash bars.

    Here are some photo’s of the attachments points since the instructions don’t even show any on the right side.

    Note on the right side the forward attachment point has a factory spacer that you must use when you install the crash bars.

    Installed Easily, thankfully haven't tested them!


    Installing the Crashbars went quite easily on my 2008 Versys. I had some caps that I put on the bolts and it cleaned up the install quite a bit. After reading about other people’s installs, I would suggest putting black tubing on the U-Bolts before installing them – it will clean it up a bit more and also add some padding to prevent damage.
