Hi all, I want to gauge interest for who wants engine guards for their 919. I have contacted Renntec and they are willing to make another run, minimum would be 10 sets and they would cost around $300 per set with shipping. They discontinued these in 2011 and since then, Givi (definitely) and SW Motech (I'm pretty sure) have discontinued theirs. They would be shipped to me in two large boxes and I would have to separate and ship individually. I've seen these in person on ST-DocLizard1's 919 and I think they're the best quality guards offered. They attach to the frame in two locations and offer great protection. I'll kindly ask Doc to post a few better pics than the Renntec factory ones. If there is enough interest I'll make the arrangements BUT I will need prepayment via Paypal or USPS money order, I'm not willing to lay out $3k and have people back out. Let me know what you think, I know they're on the expensive side but they are nice. I've personally had many issues with the Givi bars, I've had three sets crack at the welds. Givi has sent me replacements under warranty but they're no longer available and I've tried having them welded with little success, they use poor quality steel tubing IMO.
Very interesting design... I understand your frustrations with Givi, rmb. So with due respect, I have to say that the design is not exactly appealing.
I'll stick with the Givi bars. If I didn't have them, I'd be interested for sure.
Do you think maybe a member on here might be interested in creating/building something similar for a similar price? I think it would be great to have someone get the support of the site instead. Just don't know if its feasible cost/time wise for said member.
