Easy to install and very well priced : the Holan engine crash bars and the headlight protector. (No good quality of pictures)

Properly designed to protect the fairings, rad, engine, transmission and generator covers. I also have plans to build a competition race exhaust (street) that will be dyno tuned on my bike which is a DCT and see if I can find a manual transmission bike to dyno tune, as well. Maybe we can find out if Honda tuned it for A2 qualifications and there is some hidden HP and torque in there. I think were all going to have a lot of fun with these bikes.
Looking forward to seeing what you come up with. When does your bike arrive?

Looks like there is enough room between top bars and engine cylinders, and of course you can always shorten those upper tubes.
I like to see these SW-M bars in DCT model and bike dropped on the right side - how much there is room between ground and clutch casing?

Hey Ezstreet..That will be Very interesting , im sure there is !! Just removing the CAT will do loads but may need more fuel ? and a piggy back chip to fool the computer ? Please keep us in the loop !!

Yes I looked at the manual but it doesn't really give a view of the whole thing when together.

However I have decided to buy a set of the SWMotech bars so as soon as they arrive I will try and post some more detailed pictures.

Well I have now cancelled my order for the SW-Motech crash bars as they are not really available for another 2-3 weeks in the UK. Normally I would be happy to wait that long and I may well end up reordering them when they are actually in stock, until then I will keep watching for other options.

Thanks.....my bike might be here Late June/Early July....I'm hoping I'll get it
sooner. Unfortunately without a bike it's hard to get started on it so know I'm
just reviewing every aftermarket set of crash bars I can find for ideas.

Thanks Rory,


I will for sure. Yes we will need a Power Commander type unit that allows us to adjust the air/fuel mixture. As a race exhaust will allow more air to be pushed through the engine it will also need more fuel to develop additional horsepower and torque.

Just ordered a set of SW Motech bars. Perfect for me and I have a set on my KLR that have been used a few times.
SW Motech bars matched with a decent bash plate should give plenty of protection.
Some people seem to expect to crash the bike at high speed and just pick it up and continue with crash bars fitted.
For me insurance is my protection in a big crash.
