If this is what you are looking for they are made by Givi.

I have those and like them. Haven't tested them yet, thankfully.

I know there have been a few guys on here that have had the welds break on them. Not sure if they crashed hard or not.

I welded up a set that were broken and not crashed. It looked to me like Givi had their welder set too hot. The weld was fine, but cracked right around the bead. My best guess was the welder was too hot and made the surrounding metal brittle.

Press Any Key To Continue.

I had a set crack around the welds, as well. however, I also crashed hard with the Givi caseguards installed, cracked weld and all, and they saved the engine quite nicely.

That's what I want, bad welds and all. I have a welder, but, need a place to put my feet.
I really wanted to be the 2nd owner of a set.

There is a set on e-bay right now. They are local for me but won't allow for pick-ups.
