I run a moto adventure company in Kenya with 20 plus KLRS and I have bought the crash bars here at twisted throttle- items are well priced, good quality and do what they are supposed to do. They are packaged well with very thorough packaging and installation manual s and kits. Id highly recommend this parts and Ill keep buying as they have saved me and my clients tons of money and inconveniences while out on tour (Posted on 10/21/14)

This is my second set of SW-MOTECH crashbars for my 2009 KLR650. The first set, purchased in 2010, fit well and looked good but the left one bent when I went down hard one time. The bars did the job of protecting the radiator and plastics but I could not bend them back properly. Twisted Throttle does not sell the bars individually so I had to buy a new set. There have been a few design changes since the original bars. The mounting to the front downtube now has rubber grommets on the thru-bolts, presumably to reduce vibration. This seems like a good idea but I can't really tell much difference. Second, the rear-lower bars no longer mount to the footpeg bolts, but now they clamp to the frame with rubber insulation. This change may also have been to reduce vibration but again, I didn't notice much difference. Lastly, the original bars used to have a bracket for cruiser-pegs and/or riding lights. This has been replaced with a simpler piece of reinforcing steel. It looks like it might be a little stronger. All in all the bars are effective and I think worth having though the price is the additional weight. (Posted on 10/10/14)

After figuring out which skidplate to purchase with these bars, the install was not too bad. Took my inexperienced & cautious self about 3 hrs to install these + the skidplate. The fit was good, although I couldn't get an equal gap between the fairings & bars on each side. The new model bars have clamps that mount just forward of the foot pegs, which render all other skid plates (to my knowledge) un-mountable without serious trimming/grinding. The plate was a bit of a pain to install, the holes didn't align well with the KLR's front bracket (possible factory variance?) (Posted on 9/26/14)

I am pretty new to the dirt on a motorcycle, and I have done my share of picking up my bike while making the transition from just street experience. If I had of had these sooner I could have saved my plastic some nice deep scratches from gravel. I haven't had to test these out yet but they feel incredibly solid on the bike. I also used these with the Eagle Mikes upgraded bolt meant to work with these guards and it worked without issue. I do all my own work and these were easy and straight forward to install.

Foot Pegs, Crash Bars, and center Stand. Super products. Center Stand and crash bars went on superbly. Great directions. Foot pegs had a little of a challenge. The foot peg bolt to the mount must be put on to PULL the mount and foot peg together. Not enough room for socket or gear wrench. Must use open end and work 1/8 turns to get them together. 20 minutes per side! But boy do they work GREAT! Twisted Throttle, thanks for your super service! Next will be Crash plate.

I appreciated the easy install instructions. Even at my slow and steady pace, it took less than two hours from start to clean-up. The worse part of the whole experience was when I scratched the bars all up exactly 45 minutes after installing them. The good part is it saved hundreds in potential damage to my KLR when I laid it down on a steep/rocky mountain trail. Small dent on tank, would have been a complete puncture without the bars, not to mention the faring would have been toast! (Posted on 8/15/14)

We are outfitting our fleet of KLR650's with these crashbars. They have been dumped, crashed, dropped and slid across the dirt and saved a fortune in damage. Hit them with a little light sandpaper and new black paint and they look like new. Great value and a good product. (Posted on 8/1/14)
