AltRider Crash Bars BMW G650 GS
I hope I never have to use
The quality of these crash bars is good. It has a good finish. They were machined correctly and they fit well. The install was super easy.
Price was comparable to other brand's crash bars.
I was unable to rate performance and durability because I haven't crashed and don't know how they will hold up. I hope I never have to find out. They seem small, so I hope they stand up for the challenge.

Strong, attractive crash bars
This is a very high quality, well made and attractive set of crash bars. Although it doesn't protect the engine area, it should keep the upper tank and fairing from damage. The ordering process and delivery were very prompt.

Crash Bars which do what they were made for
I looked at a lot of Crash Bars including BMW bars and the AltRider bars from Revzilla are really the only thing I believe will save my bike from damage if it hits the ground. They have been designed to save your plastics and engine if the bike goes over.
I picked 4/5 for the finish because there are other crash bars which look a lot more stylish but I dont think they will save your plastics and engine. If looks is your main concern, get something else.

AltRider does it again
Just installed the bars in about 30 minutes - taking my time. It was easy, straight-forward, and solid. Like another reviewer says, the bars' simple effectiveness is awesome. I got the black thinking they'd better match the frame and they do - so well they're hard to see. They fit in there snugly but obviously provide the necessary protection. AltRider's quality and craftsmanship is great.

Bars fit well and look good. Appear to be very strong and well made. Revzilla shipped quickly, as usual.

Speed + Quality
Ordered Sunday evening; arrived on Tuesday. Excellent protection in the shipping box so the crash bars arrived safely. This is either really good or really ironic.

Everything I expected
These crash bars are everything you need and nothing you don't. I looked at everything on the market, and these protect everything without being as bulky and complicated as other bars. They are elegant in their simplicity. Installation was a snap!

Great looking protection!
I did quite a bit of research on all the different types of crash bars for the G650GS. The AltRider bars are what I decided to go with. The installation was super simple -- all the parts fit with absolute precision and the build quality is super high.
The bars look great! They add a really nice level of detail and aggressiveness without looking like an afterthought. It's the kind of part that looks like it came with the bike.
If you're on this page because you're still deciding, consider your mind made up. Make the purchase, you won't regret it.
