Cruizin Posted July 4, 2020 Share Posted July 4, 2020 The radiators are a decent distance in from the fairings. A new right or left fairing costs less than crash bars. And, I just dont like the looks of crash bars. i have owned over 30 motorcycles since 1978. Absolutely none of them had crash bars. I took many of my streetbikes offroad. Slid many around the flat track. 13 of those 30 were dirtbikes. None of them had crash bars. I watch motocross. Those guys don't have crash bars. I watch Enduro cross. no crash bars on those bikes either. I watch Redbull Erzberg. Jarvis Hodge doesn't have any crash bars on. Steve Mcqueen (and his stunt rider) didn't have any crash bars. I'm not gonna run crash bars. I'm gonna maybe install simple small round frame sliders, one per side. But, maybe not even that. I have some plastic molded engine covers and a water pump cover to install one of these days. While I think they can be worth while, I also suspect some get crash bars because they "hear" that they are needed and may also look cool at Starbucks. Some get em to mount led lights to. That kinda makes sense, but wouldn't they for sure break if you crash? 5 1 1 The MT-07 forum The Tracer 900 Forum The MT-10 Forum Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
