I have the stock crashbars but it looks like they don't actually protect the side bodywork at all. I have seen pics of a bike with higher side bars, with the Yamaha crash bars, does anyone have any info on that? Please don't say "buy these other whole crashbars" because the Yamaha crash bars were part of the deal and I can't afford to replace them nor do I want to replace bars I just paid for. Specifically I want these upper bars, does anyone have any info on them?

They will ship to the US. I put them on my wife’s S10. I believe Rumbux also has an option for you.

Rumbux also offers add on bars to the OEM Yamaha bars. You keep everything except the front hoop, which the Rumbux replaces. The Rumbux adds better side protection and is a simple install. (edit 3/2/20 No longer available at this time.)


Feel free to PM me or email. Email is in the sig line as well as my profile. I'm the importer.

The thing about the Rumbux is its a ton more money than these. These are like 180 bucks plus whatever they charge to ship

I understand. The Rumbux does include free shipping in the price. One piece upper bars, like the OEM, but with the additional side protection. Also frame mounted, so even tougher than the OEM hoop due to the additional mounting points. Integrating into the OEM bars and working with them, not just a bolt on piece that operates as a separate bar on each side that can fold on impact more easily.

Hello,

I am searching upper crashbars for my ST to install with oem crashbars.

Maybe something changed in the market? I heard that some kind of givi crash bars can be installed with oem crashbars...

I have the DS upper bars on my stock crash bars. Ordered them from a vendor here in the states. I have not tested their ability to protect the bike yet. Easy to install .

No new oem crash bar upgrade in the market? :(
It would appear that DS is the only offering for add on bars to the OEM at this time.
