Hello from NJ

Just picked up my 2012 DL650 from the dealer last Black Friday...and yes I had a good price on the bike. Now I have a dilemma of which skid plate / crash bar to get.😄

It's more which style and price, I have the Givi bars and will get the sw-motech skid plate if I need it later. Someone I ride with has the whole sw-motech setup an tested them so they are good too. You have people saying either setup had vibration issues but no one I know have had the issue so I guess it's luck of the draw there.
I want to say the Givi bars come up I little higher but that could be me seeing my bars daily and going cross-eyed.

Welcome.

I went with the SW-Motech crash bars and skid plate from Twisted Throttle this summer and have been happy with them.

Welcome V-BONG!

Have you checked out the AltRider crashbar/skidplate? $$

I have Givi's with a used ebay Sw Motech skidplate and am happy with it.
