These premium crash bars, drawn from 1 inch stainless steel tubing, protect your engine casing and plastics from the wrath of the pavement. The AltRider Crash Bars are designed for the impact load to be transferred to the frame, not the hardware. Unlike steel powder coated products, the AltRider stainless crash bars won't ever rust, even after they are scratched. Installation is easy since the bars bolt on quickly using existing mounts. These crash bars match seamlessly with the AltRider aluminum skid plate for the ultimate protection combination.
Bolts directly to the frame with no modifications needed
Seamlessly integrates with AltRider Skid Plate for the V-Strom
Precision fit with 5 axis laser coping
Hand TIG welded for extra strength
1 inch quality stainless construction resists rust and corrosion
Stainless steel hardware included for installation
Expensive but quality
Frankly, the only reason I bought these bars is because I wanted the AltRider skid plate (which only mounts to these bars).
The fit and finish is great. Well it was when I bought them. I have since dropped the bike, lets just say several times and the bars did their job. The paint is scratched up but the bars themselves are without dents or scrapes.
The only complaint is price. Things are spendy.
High quality product but it better be for the price. =)

Great Looking Engine Guard
Added these for both looks and function. I don't like the term "Crash Bars" so lets call them "Engine Guard". I added foot pegs for highway cruising and they are actually pretty comfortable to stretch the legs, I'm 5'8". If your taller, you might need to get creative with position of pegs. Very well made and simple to install.

Excellent fit, look strong.
Took two hrs to install, because lack of space in the garage.
Fit perfect, Nice look and strong hopefully I dont test it.

The installation was very easy once I got the bolts broken loose, The factory locktite makes using a normal hex wrench not the best choice. The bars are very sturdy and look great on the bike as well.

Great product, easy install
The fit and finish of this product is fantastic. Install took about 25 minutes total, and was a breeze. These crash bars look great, and add value to the bike. Hopefully I'll never have to use them, but if I do, I have no doubt that they'll hold up. Shipping was super fast after I ordered these bars. You can't go wrong with this product, it's fantastic!

RevZilla:Yes, the AltRider Crash Bars do lend themselves to the mounting of highway pegs as do the Givi Crash-bars. We do not currently have any pictures of that set up, but just added a VStrom 1000 to the Zilla stable and will be doing some additions and modifications, which will include crash bars and possibly pegs as well. Stay tuned!Jun 15, 2012
