HEED's rear...


Recommended Posts

...crash bars: are they any good? Do they fully protect the muffler fully too???? They look okay, but, they SEEM to be attached to the subframe, would this be okay to place there?

Sorry I don't have experience with those. However, I happened to come across these today, and had to think of your post:

Not sure if you just want rear crash-bars, or a complete luggage rack for your Tenere? With our kit you don’t have to choose anymore! Use the rear-crash bars in this kit separately, or in combination with the side luggage plates to...

The fact that there's multiple companies building this type of thing does add validity to the concept.


If you want my opinion based on the pictures, I would say it looks like the Heed would protect the fairings from cracking when tipping over on flat ground, but they wouldn't do much else. They do extend beyond the muffler, which might be just enough protection to save the day, but I wouldn't say they provide full protection. Being attached to the subframe is kind of the only way of attaching something to the tail, it might cause problems in a hard crash, but should hold up good in your average trail horizontal.


I am not sure what you are exactly looking for, but have you considered luggage racks? They would provide equal if not better protection, with the added benefit of providing space for luggage.


Hope that was helpful 👍
