Poland seems to be the only source
Looks like Poland is the only source. There are some Ebay sellers but you're still getting them shipped from Poland.
The $80 shipping charge is the giveaway.

Are there any us distributors or do you have to order them from Poland?

A bit of a heads up (heeds up?) for anyone considering buying a set of Heed crash bars for their ATAS as I have recently done. Very happy with the bars themselves although I have not had the chance to test them yet by dropping the bike. The problem is with the OEM Honda auxiliary lights which I specified on my bike from new. The standard crash bars have bosses which allow the lights to be screwed directly onto them but the Heed bars dont have these bosses which means that you have to buy the Heed universal light fitting kit to fit them. The problem with the light fitting kit is that it just contains a bunch of brackets and screws with collars to fit around the crash bars, none of which seem to be designed to specifically fit the Honda OEM lights. The other problem is that the front Heed bars are at a slightly different angle to the front Honda bars which means that if you do use some of the right angle brackets supplied with the lighting kit, the lights point up at the sky, not down at the road. With some experimentation, I did eventually manage to find a combination of brackets which puts the lights at just about the correct angle but the contraption looks terrible and is far from secure
I have contacted Heed directly by email twice to question how their universal light fitting kit, which is advertised on their website as being suitable for the OEM lights on the ATAS, actually fits but all they've done is send me the original instructions which were in the packet and which were useless anyway and some photos of the individual components which is of no help either
So if you are considering buying the Heed crash bars for your ATAS equipped with OEM auxiliary lights, be prepared to be disappointed by the universal light fitting kit that goes with them or, if youre clever enough, fabricate some custom made brackets

I have the Heed Bunker bars on my 2018 CRF1000A/D
The oil dip stick issue is a bit of a pain but still accessible.
I had a drop yesterday in the parking lot and she went down pretty hard on the right side. The Heeds held up pretty good other than powder coating and some moderate blistering of the tubing.
Broke a brake lever, cracked a hand guard and also some scraping on the rear foot peg corner, all in all it could of been worse I suppose.
The engine, fairing and plastics were all OK, no scratches or broken bits.

|Newc||Do the Heed Crash Bars have to be removed for access to the fairing when servicing the air filter?|

|hit-man||Hi Campbell Hay. I had a crash off road last weekend with my Heed bar equipped AT. The only damage was limited to the powder coat finish on the bars. Some 400 grip wet/dry sand paper and Rustoleum semi-gloss black has taken care of that too. The bars do have to be removed to take the body work off the bike, but this takes 20-30 minutes and is well worth the effort given the protection they provide.|

Would you buy them again or buy something different if you had to replace them?
Im a bit concerned about the bottom back right mount that is jammed in place with a bracket with only half holes slipping out under pressure
