The 919 isn't listed but I'm sure they could work somthing out.I think the are local to me so if they needed a bike to go from...maybe I could visit them.but its my daily ride so they couldn't have it long.

Hey Tvetree,

I talked with the guys, and they said they would need a bike to measure up. So if you can work something out with them, that would be cool!

Vally Station

They are across the river(ohio) not far at all.I belive they ride with a group(local Shop) less than 15 min from my house.

I've left them messages on the sites I've seen them on,and plan to ask at the shop if I dont hear from them sooner.

You can reach me at [email protected],now that this has reached this stage if you like.

Hi "Heyarchie"

When researching all the options I came across engine guards for the 919 made by GIVI. They are on my list of options for the bike as well as bags from GIVI.

Thanks Lady Di,

That crash bar is pretty cool, the only thing that they need though is a slider close to the top of that bar set! To do those bike on its side burn outs!!

TveTree: I will send you a pic that you could maybe bring with you when you go to see those guys.

I realize this thread is old, but I am hoping someone is still active here. I am looking for some minimal crash bars mainly to protect the engine in a drop or low speed crash.

I have come across some from Givi and I am wondering if anyone out there has used them?

Hey Nic. We had several pros and cons about the bars about 5-6 months ago. I think the only complaint was screws vibrating loose if not installed with Blue Loc Tite.
I'm in favor of them ,but, just haven't signed the check yet.

i have had mostly good luck with these only negative is that your exhaust cover and rear cowling are likely to still get scratched. but just keep both wheels on the ground

My brothers and a friend and I used to build crashbars just like these, for our own bikes. We'd modify them if we could from one bike to the next as in those days, we would buy/own at least one bike per year and building these bars was not easy,, BUT,, those were the days of Kawasaki Z1000, Suzuki GS1000, and the original Honda CB900 Boldor, when bikes weighed outrageous weights and a bit more iron in the form of a crashbar wouldn't even be noticed. When my brother and I first brought the 919's home, a few months ago, my first impression was how exposed the engine looked without a fairing we'd both been accustomed to. I thought about trying to make a crashbar just like the good ol' days but bikes nowadays look kind of flimsy, being so lightweight and all. I thought "you might save an engine case or two but quite easily bend the frame or what little of it there is". Believe me, the bars we made back then were solid mothers and took one heck of a beating, some of them looking almost ugly but they did the job and were "needed". I can recall more than once seeing my bike sliding down the road on its side and balancing perfectly on our crashbars. While both of you were sliding down the road, you prayed the bike didn't bounce off anything else and do some real damage.
We settled for the frame sliders for the 919's, in the hope of trying to save something, I'm not quite sure what but at least we can try...
