I'm looking for more of the stunt engine guards, the ones if you happend to get creative and lay the bike on its side and do a donut burnout!! Not that I have enough gull to do that yet, but maybe some day!!
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 Archie I e-mailed you bout them being buzy till may 7th.Well it's a little past that and They haven't tried to reach me.Do you still want them?I can try to help move things along.E-mail me or post here let me know if you're still about.
Better post here my ISP has been messing up the mail pretty Bad.
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.
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...
