Another Crash Bar Post


Recommended Posts

I am expecting to receive my T700 by the end of March June. No surprise I am now researching which crash bars to get.


My concern is which bars attach to the motor due to possible broken cases if the bikes goes down (which it will) landing on the bars? 


Is this a concern, or am I over analyzing it?

The force isn't likely to be entirely transferred to the motor mount. The bars will bend and twist if that much force is applied. I would rather have them attached there then the equally weak vertical bars at the front corners of the engine(sw-motech).  If you bend those, it'll be a larger repair bill.
