Title: Lower crash bars advice
Post by: greper on April 11, 2016, 09:19:52 pm
Hi guys,

Need some advice and opinions here... I have the BMW cylinder head covers fitted, but in hindsight should have fitted lower crash bars. The BMW lower crash bars don't work together with these cylinder head protectors.
Any recommendations on any that are good and do? I see the SW-Motech brand look good but seems to form a square around the cylinder head, which doesn't really protect it if you fall on an uneven surface with rocks I suppose?

Opinions and advice welcome :)

Cheers

Greg

Take off the covers and fit BMW Crashbars. Best option IMHO

Thanks draadwerk - the BMW items do seem like good quality, both from a robustness and fit perspective.... pricey of course!

The crashbars (OEM) on the new bikes are much better designed than on the pre-LC bikes and they do a good job too.  I don't have experience but there are engine guards from Wunderlich and Touratech that are supposed to fit with the OEM bars.  And obviously they will also fit with the Touratech and Wunderlich bars.  But those parts are expensive.  I also think the OEM bars are the best looking but that is my personal opinion.  I don't think there will be much of a price difference between OEM and, for example, Touratech, especially in SA.  I generally found that Touratech is double the price in SA (compared to Europe).  For Wunderlich the SA prices are about 2/3 more than the European equivalent.  That is perhaps because the stuff is made here.

But to get back to your question - I support the view of Draadwerk.  Get the OEM bars.  You wouldn't need anything else.

I have just fitted the sw motec lower crash bars. Very impressed with the quality and robustness of them  :thumleft:

They will fit over your current cylinder protection, which imo will give you great protection.

What I like about the sw motec bars:

Black color matches perfectly with my bike's black frame.
The bars are nice and narrow, does not stick out much wider than the cylinders.
If I lie the bike down on the crashbars, no part of the cyclinder touches the ground, but as you mentioned protruding rocks might scratch the cylinders.

Last positive is the price, much cheaper than oem bars...

Before and be-after photos.  Thanks  :thumleft:  They do look good.

The OEM bars are more in the direct line of fire when the bike lies on its side.  With those above, I think the pod protectors will work well since the bars seem to be more around the cylinder than covering the top.

However,  I am still of the opinion that crashbars are of little help during a real crash.  They are more for low speed 'incidents' like falling over in a parking lot or stalling on a difficult section somewhere.  But during a high speed fall everything is usually fubar.

Define high speed crash?
With the amount of falling I do and have seen from others, crashbars is a non negotiable. I have somersaulted the bike at 80kmph also and still finished my journey (on thick sand though)
One of the GS trophy vids shows a guy overcooking a corner and falling rather hard, without crashbars he would have had serious issues but was fine.
My stepfather fell on a low water bridge and almost shaved the Rombux bars on his S10 through the pipe...bike was still fine. Thats not a mere sidestand incident.

So in other words, I dont really understand the point you are trying to make? Are you against crashbars? will you only fit crashbars for slow speed events and remove for any long road trips?

Nee man, as ons nie semi on-topic strond praat nie...gaan die draad elkgeval dood

My ondervinding is maar matig, ek ry ander dag agter n tjom aan op sy 950 en hy op my GSA op n MX baan dat ek steeds nie kan byhou nie, nie eers amper nie. ek val ook by verre die meeste in die vriendekring so weet nie of daai ondervinding is om op trots te wees wat jy daar noem nie.

Mooi rooi meneer in jou profile pic sien ek nou...toe sien ek Vosburg....awesome paaie daar!! juis op daai trip waar ek my gat so afgeval het.

Groete


Back on topic...I thought the Touratech options looked very good and I will definitely want them someday on my LC. Have seen them being tested on the various courses and such, but that SWmotech will definitely be a lot cheaper and looks very solid to me, I would say definitely good enough but may be a bit heavier, dont know if that is something that needs concidering though.

I'm sure the bars prevented worse damage from occurring. Looking at your pic its my opinion that crash bars & cylinder head guards/protectors are the way to go.....both is necessary to limit costly damage.  :ricky:

That's if it's possible to fit both on a LC (what does the LC & GS Trophy experts say)?

Definitely need both. Our Lesotho trip two years ago was ruined because one of the guys pods were punctured by rocks and he had the OEM BMW bars on his bike.
Would have not made it out if we didn't have Pratley Putty Steal.

Those OEM protectors look good but they seem expensive (compared to, say Wunderlich).  Saw them somewhere on the net for something like GBP250+.

That is serious dough.  I am never sure where to find internet prices for OEM BMW stuff in SA, so I don't know the SA price.

Hi Copernicus,

The Rockfox Bottom Crashbars are R2 375 for the bottoms, comes in silver and black. Unfortunately i don't know if they fit with the cylinder head guards on, no one has ever told me they do or don't. Unlike the other makes though it runs across the cylinder head. They can also be interfaced with our upper crashbars, to form a complete adventure look complete with spotlight mounting points ect.

Our crashbars are the preffered accesories for a few motorcycle rental companies here in the cape, and those bikes get ashed left right and center.

Contact me at 072 461 8472 or mike@rockfox.co.za if you have a any questions.

I see there is quite a gap between the cylinder head and the crashbar.  I think the cylinder head cover should easily fit underneath the crashbar.

I strongly recommend checking out these Rockfox bars before possibly paying much more for another brand. I have some of their products on my bike and happy as can be...price and quality wise.

So looking at the potential damage that stones can cause during a fall, I decided to get some pod protectors too.  Got it from Wunderlich.  I think the OEM parts may look better but they are considerably more expensive and they also warn that they do not fit with the OEM crashbars so I did not want to take a chance.  Anyway, here it is, left side with and without the lower crashbar.

Left side is slightly different to the right because of different anchor points.  Also, the right side you can fit without removing the crashbar.  On the left side you have to.  The fastner on the underside (not in the pictures) is also a bit tricky because the hole points down at an angle and trying to put the screw in straight, had me struggling untill I had a proper look.  Other than that, the fit is a breeze.

I have the SW motech bars - good price and the black colour goes well with my trophy's black engine.
I dropped the bike on the Sani pass in Dec, and the bars really saved the day, but the bottom half of the cylinder head picked up a few scratches.
I can't see any crash bar preventing that, so I'm getting pods as well.
My advice would be to get the SW Motech bars and pods - it will most probably be cheaper than a set of OEM bars and it offers the best protection.

Happy riding!
Title: Re: Lower crash bars advice
Post by: BlingKing on July 25, 2016, 02:49:15 pm
It is always better to  have both......
I have the Wunderlich Lower and Upper Crash Bars and the Wunderlich "Dakar" cylinder head protectors - the Dakar ones are great because they are "slimline" and can be fitted within most lower crash bars whereas some cylinder head protectors do not allow this.
As you can by the pic they were already tested in the one "Look What You're Missing" ride by yours truly the crash test dummy and held up well.
Not some crash bars (hint hint BMW OEM Adventure crash bars!)

So, which combination of crash bars and cylinder head protectors would have helped prevent this on a LC GSA?

Single random rock punctures the cylinder head cover as bike slides across ground.

I'll pop in around the end of the week then since I've also got SW Motech Up and Back risers on order from you.
I'll also have to decide on a top box. Still not sure but leaning towards the 45l Motorradical.
I need something that wont break off on gravel travels etc. So even if a "Plastic" one fits that bill it will do... maybe even preferred.
