Quick shipping and they look great on my 2014 KLR 650. Instruction are clear and all needed accessories are provided. Highly recommend. (Posted on 9/20/14)

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)

I purchased these last week and recently installed the crash bars. They were relatively easy to install and the most challenging aspect was to get the subframe bolts aligned with the holes through the frame. That wasn't trivial, but it was relatively easy after I scratched my head for a while. Otherwise, I was impressed with the installation. The product seems solid at this time and the relatively minor vibrations of the crash bars are well dampened by the rubber pads and rubber bushing provided with the installation materials. The instructions were clear and easy to understand. I was also able to use my existing stock skid plate, which was nice since I was not ready to replace that yet. (Posted on 7/30/14)

Being concientious about easily damaged radiators and body panels, I decided to source out some protection. There are others worthy of looking into, but....having past experience with SW-Motech products and super service from TT, my choice was easy. Installation was straightforward, product quality is as expected {above average!}, and fit and finish was great. I cannot comment on how they "work" though...........!!!! Ride Safe.

I bought these crash bars about a month ago. They are the new style that clamps to the frame. They were very well packaged and also feel very sturdy when mounted. I hope to not have to use them but atleast there there if I need them. My only complant is that at the time i ordered them no one had the new skid plate that works with these bars only. From what I here you cant use any other skid plate except for the new SW Motech designed skid plate. (Posted on 7/15/14)

Kept hearing how good these bars are so decided to pull the trigger. Had everything off and installed in roughly an hour. (Posted on 7/7/14)

Ordered and received these bars through my local dealer, Fuel Powersports in West Bend, WI for my 2012 KLR650. I bought these in anticipation of an organized Dual Sport ride coming up in October. I grabbed a Coke and headed out to the garage to install them on Saturday. Like others posted, the instructions are not "step by step" like they are for a lot of products out there but if you have any mechanical ability you can figure it out pretty easily. The bars were of perfect alignment and took no "tweaking" to align bolt holes. Went on in about 2 hours. It took longer to remove/install the bodywork and tank than it did to install the bars. Looking forward to getting the SW Motech skid plate to add to my bike protection! (Posted on 9/15/13)

I ordered these right after I picked up my 2012 KLR. Unfortunately I wrecked right before I got them and smashed in the right side with the water reservoir... Anyway, install was 2 hours with 2 guys and all the tools and space we needed. Instructions are not the best but enough that you can figure it out. They seem very strong so far. Tipped the bike over on concrete and lifted it by the bars to test them, worked well. I will see what happens next time I crash on the trails. Installed with the skid plate too. (Posted on 7/24/13)

I just purchased the crash bars after the 1st radiator replacement. The first weekend riding with the new crash bars. We went 700+ miles from Houston to Mena and trail riding. Put the bars to the maximum test possible, not intentionally though. The bars worked great and proved to save the bike from major damage, and did its job protecting the radiator. The bars have been bent in towards the bike and now touch the plastics. The bars would get a 5 if they were a little stronger, maybe a heavier gauge steel. But they did the job and saved me another $2,000, in damage. The Skid Plate saved me from purchasing a new motor, and was worth its weight in gold. A Must have for hard core riders.

Received my crash bars in good order and viewed the instructions on line. It took me about 8 hours to install them with several breaks and a really cramped, dimly lit workspace. However I was alone, not feeling well, and the bike was new to me. I did prop up my gas tank with a piece of wood. My sub frame did not shift but I only loosened one side at a time. Final result is exactly what I wanted. I hope I never give them a true test. The only exception to the directions was that the new foot peg bolts were not long enough to accept the lock washers as well as the flat washers and still grab the threads on the frame. I have a SW MOTECH center stand as well. I had to install the foot pegs without the lock washers. I'm not too concerned as there are no lock washers on the factory installation. (Posted on 4/5/13)
