Crash Bars - Anyone got any (not Honda ones)

I want to get some crash bars for my new black DCT AT, there are a lot being advertises but other than the Honda ones I don't think any are actually available in the UK

Has anyone fitted any non Honda Crash bars to their bike and if so what are they like?

Preferably I am looking for engine and from bodywork protection.

Have you got them fitted?

I saw them but I am wary about buying them (or any others) without getting an idea of if they are any good

Yes been watching them and TT (who I don't expect to buy) SW-Motech, R&G, Hepco and Becker and Holan, but none of them have anything actually available at the moment.

Holan say their engine bars are only for non DCT and they haven't bothered replying to my email asking if they will be doing a DCT version so I wont be buying from them.

No, not yet, but am considering ordering them to see how they look when they arrive.If they're no good, I'll just send them back without fitting

Crash Bars, yes we need crash bars

Spanish demo bike










Unfortunately, none of the crash bars that are offered today appear to be any good. The problem seems to be with the bike - no proper fixing points.

Resigned from purchase in 2016.

Hopefully someone able to help us out here will come up with a solution, sure looks like there's a sizeable market here for them to act on.
