Bike fell and crash bar broke
This crash bars are just not good quality, bike fell from misplace footpeg and impact wasnt even direct on crash bar, mayor impact was on handlebar. After picking bike up I saw that the crash bar had a slightly sctrach and when looking closer, the welding was just broken, crash bar would just move around and can get it separated using little force. Can not imagine how this crash bars would be obsolete it falling while riding even at low-moderate speed.

Guilded Finish hides structural deficit. Poor customer service.
FYI, this review is for the G650GS. Front left Weld failed after a few uses. It cracked right where the weld meet the steel tube. Eventually the whole The bar is as straight as it was just after install. Customer service treated me as if faulty welds were my fault.

I called them and sent them pictures, and they said they would replace them but I would have to send them back first. I didn't have the time or the money to order a new set and hope they reimburse me, and the guy wouldn't budge when I suggested a resonable alternative(take the package to FedEx and have them send a packing list immediately via email), but they wouldn't budge.

I would buy the crash bars from touratech for the upper fairing. While they are thinner, I can speak to the quality of they're welding on the pannier racks on my other 800GSA. They can at least support the weight of the bike on its side.

Very nice!
Really nice bars, I had my doubts because I thought that they might be placed to closed to my knees, but not at all.
Shipping was very fast, they look great, and install in a breeze. Highly recommend them

Altrider crash bars!
Ordered these in Black to fit a '14 BMW Sertao.
Packing was super good, tons of bubble wrap!
Installation is a no brainier, 3 bolts, super easy.
I haven't dropped the bike yet with these installed, so a 4 on durability and performance. I have no doubt these heavy duty crash bars will protect my bike in a fall or drop tho.
Altrider has some of the best customer support around! They answer their emails immediately!

Nice, clean looking crashers.
Super easy install. Looks great on 2013 BMW G650GS. Doesn't block the electrical powerlet socket. Looks nice with the Altrider skid plate too. I think most crashbars are overpriced, including these, but I'm very happy with them.

Good Value
Easy to install, good finish - but I can't speak to performance or durability. They have only been on the bike about 2 months, and I've thankfully kept the shiny side up at all times. In reality I hope I never need the crash bar, but it's nice to know they are there. Also - these seemed the best value I found for bars on the G650GS.

I'm very stoked to have the crash bars installed. It was a snap, even for a girl! I hope to not drop my GS ever again, but if I do then at least I have these pimped out bars for engine and plastic protection. The black color blends into my bike naturally. Shipping was super fast, since I live on the west coast. I will be ordering the skid plate next! I officially love me some Revzilla!

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.
