Excellent
I installed a few months ago and laid the bike due to debris. Minor scratches but no issues. Best reference I can give is the crash bar allowed my leg not to be crushed by bike and jumped back on feet immediately. Thank you very much and very happy with purchase. Hope not to need them again. Rise safely

Most Excellent!
I bought the crash bar and slider for my new 2016 V-Strom 650 and couldn't be happier! The build and materials are top notch and I love the bonus of them being made in America. I don't consider them expensive since I take value into consideration, you won't find better considering the stainless steel materials, thickness and weld build quality.

Installation was easy, everything just fit, the hardest part was breaking the lock-tite'd seal in the bolts from the factory installation.

Kudos also to the folks behind the website!, It's a very well thought-out design and it's obvious you've put a lot of time and $ into making it simple to find things - especially when looking for items specifically for my bike - much appreciated!

Overall: Highly recommended product and company

Great Crashbar. Perfect fit.
I bought this a little over a month ago along with the matching Altrider skidplate for my 2012 Suzuki Vstrom 650. I replaced the "Adventure" crashbar that came with the bike. This Altrider crashbar fit perfectly and mates with the frame mounts for a very secure, strong fit. The two halves went together easily at the center. Installation took all of 15 minutes and instructions were good. Altrider skidplate mated perfectly. Stainless steel construction means no rust even when I do scratch the black powdercoat finish which was also perfectly done. No complaints of regrets. Buy it. You'll love it.

There expensive, but I think they look a lot better than the other style bars that loop up over the fairing. The price was more than I was looking to spend but a week after I put them on I low sided on some ice. The bike, me and the bars all walked away with no damage. If the bike goes down it rests on the bars and handlebars, making it so the fairing doesn't touch the ground. Installation was easy enough, just make sure you go over the instructions a couple times before starting. I missed a step and had a hell of a time getting the final bolts tightened to spec.

Great product. Install could be easier.
Fit, finish, and quality are apparent in the product. Installation instructions should be updated, some of the bolt and nut sizes listed, in case you're looking around in your toolbox for the size listed, are incorrect. Not a deal breaker, but it slowed the installation. Overall, very satisfied and even with the instructions being off, I still completed this in one evening after work.

Expensive, but worth the money
This is a high-end product. The design appears to be very solid and functional and the fit and finish are excellent. The install was quick and easy -- a straight bolt-up with no twisting, cutting, or modifications. The bars do not vibrate while riding as it is reported some competing products do. Would purchase again.

Best crash bars out there
These are definitely not the cheapest crash bars available, and it took me some time to decide on these. But ultimately, these bars have the highest quality. Now that I have them I will order the skid plate.

Great Crash Bars
The installation was very easy and the bars look great when done. All the parts and connections went exactly as the directions specified. I have a Suzuki DL650 so i selected the black version of the bars. Today I tested the bars by dropping the bike on a gravel road; everything worked out well, I picked up the bike and kept going. I would recommend these crash bars.

Easy Install, Looks Great
These crash bars are more expensive than the competitor's products, but after shopping around and looking a the amount of protection provided, I went with these. Installation instructions were easy to follow and start to finish it took all of 15 minutes. Look great on the bike and no noticeable change in performance or noise.

Great look and protection for the bike. Survived a launching into a desert tree. Bike not harmed.

Wanted to protect those expensive parts of the bike in case the bike ever gets dropped.

You get what you pay for with Altrider !...
These are very much a Premium design and manufactured product.

By comparison,The previously purchased Givi bars had a vibration issue and were not very well made (comparatively speaking anyway...) even at 1/2 the price, not worth it.
R. Douglas G on Jan 31, 2015

Stainless steel won't rust. Also, skid plate bolts to the bars, not the engine.

i picked these bars after reading other reviews. the bars fit like a glove. easy install. i picked the bike up with a lift using these bars to get to the bottom to install the skid plate. not a bit of flex.

Steve F on Mar 6, 2016
On '12 DL650, will these bars work with the Suzuki OEM lower fairing installed?
A shopper on Sep 19, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I'm sorry that I can't answer this but I have the bars and they are top notch. The cross bar is in a very similar location to the stock bar I took off of my '12 Adventure. I will say that I highly recommend that you consider the Altrider bash plate to go with these instead of the OEM cowl. The cowl does little to protect the bottom of the engine. The Altrider bash plate is burly, looks good, integrates beautifully and actually protects. Oh, and it's easy to change the oil w/out removing the bash plate too. The Altrider product is first class and the fit was perfect.
