Call for Availability


 

Constructed of 26.9mm outer-diameter heavy-duty mild steel, SW-MOTECH crashbars are designed to provide maximum protection, optical integration, and high-quality fit and finish.

Note: Diameter of lower portion of bars (commonly used for footpeg mounting) is closer to 23.5mm.

Fits:
'07-'09 Versys 650 (first generation)
'10 & later Versys 650 (second generation)

  ****Special Note: These bars will not fit the California model without removing the special emissions package, which we do not endorse.  We have been told that if you have a high degree of mechanical aptitude, you can make the crashbar fit.
All components are protected against corrosion by sandblasting and powdercoating. High-strength frame mounting points. Black.

One of our customers put together a nice little "Photo-Blog" of his install to see it follow this link.

The nylon lock nuts that come with the new front bolts are too tall and will not fit in the allowable space deep enough to enable the new bolt to align. The stock nuts were about half the width of the new ones, but they are a different thread pattern. Had to make a trip to my local hardware store to get new thinner nuts and use lock washers. Oh, and the new bolts, nuts are a different thread than stock. Found that out the hardway b/c I tried using the stock nut on the new bolts. So, not only had to buy new nuts but also a new bolt. I can't be the only person having this problem. Otherwise, well built product and am satisfied overall. It's not a project if you don't have to make an extra trip to the hardware store, right?

Installation wasn't too bad. Taking plastics off was the hardest part. Appears to be great protection, and still looks good. Hope I don't ever have to test it, but I assume it'll do it's job. I'll update if i ever find out. Price seems a little steep, but for the peace of mind it's worth it for me. Not to mention the quality great and doing business with SW Motech is a pleasure.

Great bars for sure, Easy to install and look nice too.

However, I would make the instructions a little clearer, it's slightly frustrating but the pictures help a lot. Also, I think it might be better to have a curved metal piece to bolt around frame rather than the flat piece with a U-bolt.

Overall, good investment and I'm happy with the purchase ^.^ (Posted on 5/24/13)

Right side: I had them installed on my 2013 Versys for about a week when I dropped the bike backing it in to my garage.

Left side: 2 weeks later while making a very slow u turn, lost my footing, before I knew it my baby was on her side.

Both times the bike was saved because of the crash bar!!! Even before I bought these, I knew it was well worth the $s, because I was certain it was just a matter of "when" and not "if" the bike will take be dropped.

Also, really glad I bought these from TT.com. (Posted on 4/24/13)

Got these bars quickly. easy to install, the directions are not the clearest, but if you study the picture its fairly clear when to mount. Takes a bit a playing with to get them on, but anybody can install them. worth the money ! and they look really nice on the bike. (Posted on 4/1/13)

I ordered these bars immediately after picking up my bike (Kawasaki Versys) that I dropped in my driveway.

I received them a few days later and they were installed less than an hour after I opened the box. Installation was simple though the written instructions weren't all that great. The pictures help more than the words.

Installation of the crash bars has not caused any vibrations or any changes to the handling of the bike. Now I ride (and park) my bike without worrying as much about cosmetic or structural damage to the bike in the event of a spill.

Great service as always from Twisted Throttle. (Posted on 10/24/12)
