Which Upper Crash Bars
« on: June 12, 2017, 09:59:05 am »
I am wanting to fit some upper crash bars to my bike and it currently has the Yamaha protection which covers the lower part and has the light bar attached.
I am wanting to keep the lower and light bar but add the upper protection so was wanting to know which is the best to fit to my bike.
The only one I've found that bolts to what is fitted at the moment is D.S. bike version.
Has anyone got any other makes I could look at.
Cheers Steve

I think the DS bars may be your only choice?

I like the look of the Heed bars & definitely would have bought some if my bike hadn't already come with Givi ones fitted. (Can't see the point of wasting money changing them)

Probably would have gone for the saddlebags too, just to put my tools in when touring (gaffa tape one side & cable ties the other)

No idea if they would fit with your yamaha bars in situ? You could drop them a line?

Dunno if I've helped at all??

Not quite sure about the light bar.  Rumbux offers an upper bar with side protection that replaces the Yamaha upper hoop.  It is a direct fit to the Yamaha lower.  How is the light bar attached now?  Clamps to the upper hoop, or using the screws?

I have the DS ones from Jason at ADVMotorrad. They're nice.
