I've been looking as well - at this point I think I'm going to go just wrap them in some kind of tough tape or paracord

Pardon the hijack.........

If you are in a hurry, contact @Swazi sean (XStrong topboxes and panniers in Richardsbay). He also manufactures something similar. I got a set from him.

What a Gentleman!!! Riaan Contacted me yesterday and we had a quick chat - within an hour or so he had started printing these. amended the design once or twice and there we have it. I think they look great !!! Asked for KTM on them and presto, done!! Thanks a mil. !!!
I suggest you Pm to discuss what you may want on yours.

he also makes some flipping awesome Helmet hangars !! Great design to not screw up your helmet padding if you hang your helmet.

Riaan, thanks again for being willing to assist. Thanks to all who commented. Will test out theses and im sure they will be great.

I have a set of the GIVI ones on my crash bars , there is two problems re fitting these on the OEM KTM CRASH BARS , 1st is the Givi ones inner diameter is bigger than the bar , had to wrap the bar with tape to have them fit nice , and then 2nd problem is that the fit is a bit hampered , these are made to fit on the straight part of the crash bar ,
Most vulnerable part on the Oem bars is the corner , when the bike goes over this is the contact part and these sliders do not cover that part , now if a slider can be printed that fits on the corner part of the bat it will be a winner.

Thanks for the input - I suspected as much. The corner is certainly the right place for it. Tad difficult with the measurements. I'm hoping that these placed as close to the corner as possible would make that slight difference...just adding that centimetre might make the smack that the corner takes a little gentler.. 
Otherwise its pool noodles or hosepipe taped in place.. :)  :biggrin:

Nicely done.
Is that a dual filament printer?

PLA for now. Have CPE and PETG and PLA plus to use as well, but the PLA is printed with 0.6mm nozzle, and has a very thick outer and top and bottom laters. Almost 100% infill. So will see how these do based on feedback and adjust as necessary.

What infill % I doubt a 3D filament print will have much abrasion resistance. Well done on the colour change ;)

50% to 100%. But I got such thick perimeters and layers that the 50% infill is in reality almost non existent as in not much to fill in.

PM me if you want to see slicer screenshots

Still cheaper than R2000 to have your crashbars re-powder coated :thumleft:

Update - I was lucky enough to get a black and white pair from Riaan as well. I initially had the orange ones on, nothing wrong with them but since the 1090 is largely black and white, I changed them around.
Took and old bicycle tube.. cut it up and used that to make them fit snug... They look great and as yet, havent had the need to use them but awesome.
