Anyone have experience with Rival lower crash bars?

Came across these on Adv Rider in an ad. They look pretty stout. Yes, they are only lower crash bars but look like they could offer some good protection where it counts... And you don't have a friggen candy cane wrapped around the bike. I might just give them a try.

Rival Components Yamaha Tenere 700 lower crash bars offer protection to the engine and other vulnerable parts on the lower sides of the motorcycle. Prevent damage that could leave you stranded and with a costly repair bill.

Since these parallel the stock cradle, why doesn't someone just come out with replacement cradles with the guard bar.  It would save a lot of clutter and weight.

@JohnnieBoy Those bars do look interesting so please post a review if you end up getting a set. I have to agree with @BADDANDYin that those bars could be designed to replace the OEM struts, cleaning things up and saving weight as well.

Not sure what you guys are referring to... please elaborate? Cradles, struts?

This is the strut ( or cradle) that could be removed if the Rival guard was designed to replace the OEM piece.

In all my years of riding and owning motorcycles, I never knew this was called a "cradle." Thanks for the lesson.

My question was about what aftermarket skid plates these are compatible with - I inquired with them about this I mean. Apparently most "normal" crash bars are not compatible with my acerbis gas tank so am looking into these lower style
