Description

Note: Diameter of lower portion of bars (commonly used for footpeg mounting) is closer to 23.5mm.

  ****Special Note: These bars will not fit the California model without removing the special emissions package which we do not endorse.  We have been told that if you have a high degree of mechanical aptitude you can make the crashbar fit.
All components are protected against corrosion by sandblasting and powdercoating. High-strength frame mounting points. Black.

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

    Managed to fit on my California model Versys 650

    I decided that I would be able to figure out how to install the crash bars despite the disclaimers about using them on the California models and found that doing so was easier than I had hoped. I punched a new mounting hole in the bracket for the evaporative emissions package and rotated it a little bit counter-clockwise to clear the upper clamp on the crash bar. After that I needed to carve a little off the plastic cover for the same package to clear the same clamp. No modifications were needed on the crash bar. The bars are solid with a nice finish. They look good on the motorcycle and provide a great spot for mounting a GoPro with little vibration.

    Great Product..Instructions not...

    VonB

    I agree with all the other reviewers, this is a solid product, doing the installation by my self toke 90min. one thing others didn’t mention is (unless i mess it.) the original bolts will have a different size bolt than the new ones, no being picky but it would have been nice to use the same size socket as the bolt your removing.

    Overall I love them, i now feel a little more secure if i drop my Versys 2009

    Great Product; horrible instuctions

    Scott13Versys

    I love the guards and the way they look; super sturdy. Not really that hard to install once you figure out the hieroglyphics that they call instructions…..that’s the only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars.

    Great So Far! (2008 Kawasaki Versys)

    akfa

    Installation wasn’t too bad. Taking plastics off was the hardest part. Appears to be great protection, and still looks good. Hope I don’t ever have to test it, but I assume it’ll do it’s job. I’ll update if i ever find out. Price seems a little steep, but for the peace of mind it’s worth it for me. Not to mention the quality great and doing business with SW Motech is a pleasure.

    Overall happy, but..........

    tommy2cyl

    The nylon lock nuts that come with the new front bolts are too tall and will not fit in the allowable space deep enough to enable the new bolt to align. The stock nuts were about half the width of the new ones, but they are a different thread pattern. Had to make a trip to my local hardware store to get new thinner nuts and use lock washers. Oh, and the new bolts, nuts are a different thread than stock. Found that out the hardway b/c I tried using the stock nut on the new bolts. So, not only had to buy new nuts but also a new bolt. I can’t be the only person having this problem. Otherwise, well built product and am satisfied overall. It’s not a project if you don’t have to make an extra trip to the hardware store, right?

    Reccomended

    Sinisa

    Great bars for sure, Easy to install and look nice too.

    However, I would make the instructions a little clearer, it’s slightly frustrating but the pictures help a lot. Also, I think it might be better to have a curved metal piece to bolt around frame rather than the flat piece with a U-bolt.

    Overall, good investment and I’m happy with the purchase ^.^

    Unintentionally Tested Both Sides

    Edmund

    Right side: I had them installed on my 2013 Versys for about a week when I dropped the bike backing it in to my garage.

    Left side: 2 weeks later while making a very slow u turn, lost my footing, before I knew it my baby was on her side.

    Both times the bike was saved because of the crash bar!!! Even before I bought these, I knew it was well worth the $s, because I was certain it was just a matter of “when” and not “if” the bike will take be dropped.

    Also, really glad I bought these from TT.com.

    Got these bars quickly. easy to install, the directions are not the clearest, but if you study the picture its fairly clear when to mount. Takes a bit a playing with to get them on, but anybody can install them. worth the money ! and they look really nice on the bike.

    Great Crash Bars

    Anonymous

    I ordered these bars immediately after picking up my bike (Kawasaki Versys) that I dropped in my driveway.

    I received them a few days later and they were installed less than an hour after I opened the box. Installation was simple though the written instructions weren’t all that great. The pictures help more than the words.

    Installation of the crash bars has not caused any vibrations or any changes to the handling of the bike. Now I ride (and park) my bike without worrying as much about cosmetic or structural damage to the bike in the event of a spill.

    Great service as always from Twisted Throttle.
