In the end I bought the Honda OEM crash bars as I liked the look the most. The Rumbux seemed the most comprehensive protection and the Rockfox really good value for money and inexpensive. The Honda I thought initially was way overpriced but when I downloaded the installation instructions it seemed more justified with 2 cross supports attached to the frame.

All the install manuals are here http://cssportal.css-club.net/honda/MCA/Start.asp?GROUP=oth

Crash bars are called "Front Side Pipe"



The Honda ones are incredibly light. When mine arrived I thought there were none in the box that arrived the box was so light. The Rumbux are Heavy at least an extra 5KGs.


Pictures please

Seems currently there is only 2 crash bars to really consider. whats your opinion on the following.

Rumbux vs Rockfox:
tube size & thickness;
overall weight;
sturdiness - i.e most effective when bike is dropped;
quality of brackets;
quality of paint;
effectiveness of bash plate;
which looks better;
