Givi TN355 Crash Bars Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200Z 2010-2014
GIVI makes great products and these crash bars are just what I wanted and needed.
After reading all the reviews of the various crash bars available for my Super Tenere I decided to buy the GIVIs. I had a set of GIVI crash bars on my '09 Kawasaki KLR650 and they worked great through many hard off road adventures. The GIVI crash bars look great on my '15 Super Tenere and protect the areas that are of most concern in a tip over. I also like the fact that the side panels on my motorcycle can be removed for servicing the battery without removing the crash bar. The installation instructions for these bars are completely backwards to what is necessary for installation. The brackets on the front of the engine need to be installed before the actual crash bars on each side. Another good thing about these crash bars is the lower bend on each side is an ideal place to attach highway pegs.

Very very nice
Nice and sturdy bars and with style.
All this without paying a crazy amount.
Finish and style is 10/10 and it is made in Italy, which is not China....

Givi Engine Guards
Engine guards were fairly straight forward to install. Works great and I'm able to mount a set of highway pegs on the guards.
I have the McCruise cruise control on the Tenere. Only glitch I ran into, and it's not Givi's fault, is that the one support for the guard on the front of the engine goes right through the area where the McCruise cruise control component is located. I was able to modify the mount to fit around the McCruise and it worked out well.

Better than expected
After reading reviews I was a little worried that these guards wouldn't be very durable. After getting them and installing them I feel my bike is safe from falling over off road. The guards mount very sturdy and are quite heavy. They may not be the prettiest option but they are one of the cheapest. As with all GIvi products I own the directions are terrible. Good thing the install isn't too bad. PS You need a long 6mm hex key for install.

Good crash bar for light use.
If you plan on dumping your bike several times I'd recommend an upgrade. For an occasional tip over these will work just fine. Weld's were not as clean as I'd like. You need a very long hex tool that also doesn't come with the bar to install. Overall you get about what you pay for.

Looks awesome, feels sturdy, good investment!
Out of the box: they look awesome, the fit and finnish are impressive. Installation: the instructions are...well...somewhat confusing. I did alot of "hit and miss" on the install. Hint: start in the middle and work your way out...meaning: install the guards last. Also, have both metric and inch tools available, as I had to use both...odd! I hope I never have to use them, but regardless, money well spent.

Good guards, great price.
These engine guards may not have the cleanest welds or perfect alignment at the weld points, but at the end of the day they are just crash bars. For the price paid, I'm extremely satisfied.
