Questions about Altrider Crash Bars
« on: May 14, 2018, 06:22:12 pm »
I am buying an Altrider Skid Plate and Lower Crash Bars and can't decide if I should get the upper bars as well. I understand they increase rigidity a little and provide a good aux light mount location. Can anyone speak from personal experience about the uppers? Thanks!

They came with my Tenere.
After crashing it a few times on hard pack, i would recommend them. ::026::

Can't speak from experience of having the uppers, but I have the lowers, and in all the off road falls, the bike has been protected. Never have seen any reason to buy the uppers. Bars are strong enough to not bend. And with black semi-gloss paint, no one knows it has been down if more than a couple of feet away.

My one side is goosed in a little. I’ll be yanking it straight with a chain and getting uppers soon.
