Yup, another one confirming that one should install the center stuff first, then the side bars. When done this way no issues.

For the record, I weighed all the Givi parts (bars and hardware) on my postal scale. Sad part is, that was about one week ago and now I cant find the damn wieghts I wrote down to the ounce. However, if you not being anal about weights, figure the install will add 12 pounds to your bike after subtraction of the stock hardware. It was not more than 13 pounds, I just dont have the exact number anymore. Sorry.
Love the bars but sure would have liked to know this before following GIVI's instructions. Not hard to figure out but you would think the manufacturer would lead you in the right direction.

Backordered for 4-5 weeks. :(

That's what I get for pulling the trigger slooooowwwwwwly.

Seem like good folks though. They (Scott) actually called me and apologized and offered a discount on the Hepco-Becker bars if I wanted to change.

Nope! I'm a patient old geezer. I think I like these enough to wait.

Thanks for all the excellent pics and info. Bet my install goes very smooth now.

I believe thats a minus 2. I ordered them there and was told 5-6 weeks. I am waiting it out. Customer service is great as they offered me the H-B ones if I didn't want to wait.

For the price and quality the GIVIs are worth the wait. Guess I am lucky I got mine when I did.

Installed my Givi crash bars and I would highly recommend them. Took my time, followed the instructions and no problems. Everything fit, zero requirement to bend/force anything. Did need to run out and buy a breaker bar for the engine bolts.

Been meaning to post on this thread. Givi bars are the way to go. Good price, easy install, great look, good protection, easy maintienance access.

Only one little issue. I had several things to install and of course the first was tha Fiame horns so I dutifully followed the posts here and found a very cool hidden spot for them. I was very proud of all the extra work I went to on that to hide the wiring, paint out the washers black....and then.... realized that the brackes to hold the GIVI's interferred with all my just accomplished work. Took off the horns, installed the GIVI's and put the horns back on in a slightly different location

+10 on the GIVI's, one of the best deals on my Tenere

Toompine,

Do you have any pics of the mount location for your horns with the Givi bars. I have one of my Wolo horns (Wolo and Fiamm are almost identical) mounted on my bike and would like to mount both horns and I would like to see what you did.

Thanks,
Randy

That and a longer Hex wrench to reach in the left outside tubes. I have a small hand set and a really nice (ie expensive) socket set but the hand set was too short and the socket was too big. DOH!! Thats ok. It gave me an excuse to go buy some more tools ::024:: .

The best part? SWMBO didn't even notice that they were on.

If you don't want to wait for Givis, there is really nothing wrong with the H&B - except maybe a bit more expensive. I would be asking about that discount!

Did my first drop test on the weekend, H&B's came through with flying colors.

PLUS you get a great place to mount the agri-supply tubes
