      SW-MOTECH’s Crash Bars Engine Guards are built for the rider wanting protection for crucial parts while saving both weight and space. To do this, SW-MOTECH makes their bars from powder coated 26.9 mm mild steel tubing that is precision bent to fit your specific bike even if you have other aftermarket add-ons. High strength frame mounting points are used to secure the bars and the hardware that’s included with the kit takes the opportunity to beef up connection strength by using higher grade fasteners than stock. With these considerations the SW-MOTECH Crash Bars will give you confidence while protecting your bike’s crucial components.

    • Constructed from 26.9mm outer-diameter mild steel tubing
    • SW-MOTECH crash bars are designed to provide maximum protection, optical integration, and high-quality fit and finish
    • All components are protected against corrosion by a black powder coat finish
    • High-strength frame mounting points
    • Includes bolt kit for machines with SW-MOTECH Skid Plates
    • Fits with:
      Original Kawasaki plastic skid plate
      Twisted Throttle's aluminum skid plate
      Ricochet (Utah Sport Cycle)
    • For KLRs the "Doohickey" (the left-side balancer chain tension adjuster) is accessible with the crash bar installed
    • Includes two metric M8x70 replacement bolts to upgrade your original subframe bolt strength (located between the rear end of the tank and the front end of the seat) from grade 8.8 to grade 10.9
    • For certain BMW models, these guards protect both the fairings and cases while still providing room for oil changes and valve adjustments

    Battle tested

    Comments On Jan 03, 2016:Install took some time, recommend the Eagle drill through subframe kit for peace of mind! Dropped my bike for the first time in dirt last weekend. The crash bars did an excellent job of taking the drop. Down hill too! A few times! Bent slightly, was able to bend back. I'd buy them again. Good product!

    Great Buy!

    Comments On Nov 30, 2015:These far surpass the crash bars offered by Happy Trails. Still looking great after 2 years on the bike. Plus, I can access my radiator cap unlike the HT product. Burly and strong, they will not disappoint.

    Thank goodness I had these

    Comments On Aug 07, 2015:Was recently just hit - broad sided- and these saved my left leg. The pickup hit me and crashed the bike hard to the right side and then it slid about 20 feet. The bars were not bent but the right side was ground down quite a bit. These saved my bike from much more certain damage as the plastics were all protected.
    I ride a good mix and I've dropped the bike many times in the field. I've never had any damage and if you keep your feet in place, these bars will protect you from getting hurt as they form a pocket with the rear pegs on the F800 (and I'm sure others).
    I would buy these again (in fact I am going to as replacements for the ground up ones) and I would recommend them to others.

    Great Product!

    Comments On Dec 09, 2014:I bought these for protection and luckily I have not had to test them with a crash. They look great! Easy Instal and do not get in the way of my legs or knees. They mount right up with no modification or forcing to fit. I researched for a while and bought these because many great reviews of how strong they are.

    Paid for themselves 5 times over.

    Comments On Jul 10, 2014:I have tipped my bike over numerous times in the dirt and they protected my radiator and coolant reservoir over and over again. SW-Motech's fit and finish is unmatched. However they did start to develop a stress fracture/crack. Fortunately they were steel so I was able to weld the crack, sand it down, and paint the repair. No issues since. I would still recommend these to anyone. I just wish they made them for more bikes.

    These are awesome

    Comments On Dec 18, 2013:Easy install, took myself and a buddy about an hour and a half. I haven't gone down yet so i don't know how well they work but they sure feel sturdy. All the bolts supplied were high quality and the directions easy to follow. Everybody who has an 08 to current KLR should have these on them. It did start a bad trend for me though, I've since installed a new exhaust, an aftermarket windshield, pannier rack and boxes and and I'm trying to find an excuse to buy a new set of 50/50's

    Comments On Nov 21, 2013:The best i could find on the market. I love the bars. I have laid the bike down a couple of times in the dirt and have no scratches on the bike. The highway peg mounts are worthless. You would have to be 4 foot tall to use the pegs. Other than that the bars are good looking and work.

    Comments On Oct 19, 2013:All told a good quality product & relatively easy to install. Paint is holding up well and overall it's a nice compliment to this KLR. Added some flip down pegs to the mount holes for long highway stretches - very happy - recommend

    Comments On Jun 13, 2013:I bought these and they're fantastic. Then going off this website's recommendation I bought the Ricochet skid plate, which is listed at "fits with". I had to cut off 2/3 of the side ears on the skid plate to get it to fit.
    SW Motech does a nice set of bars, Rocky Mountain ATV needs to pull their head out and fix the "fits with" recommendations. The plate is nowhere near able to fit, I even took the bars completely off and installed the plate then attempted to reinstall the bars.
    I haven't laid down the KLR since I bought the bars... so I can't vouch for their crashability, but its only a matter of time and cheap insurance.
