Best skid plate, centerstand, crash bars combo

Ordering up for the new 2014 VStrom I just picked up. I have the SW Motech centerstand on my 650 but OEM crash bars and a Weld86 skid plate which is ugly but functional. I want the least expensive combo that works together (skid and cs) and looks great and are easy to intall. I guess it would be nice to be able to get the oil filters off with the skid on but not necessary.

Not really a complete answer, but I think my OEM crash bars are the best. They work with either center stand. I love the looks and how my Ravtech skid plate mounts to frame, but it took some work to get it fitted.

Thanks. I do see some posts that the Givi crash bars often vibrate quite a bit above certain rpm's.

I have OEM centerstand, Ravetech skid plate, and Givi crash bars. They all fit together splendidly. I have had no problems with vibrations from the bars.

2thDr above said he had some fitting to do with the OEM crash bars and Ravetech skid plate. I would just as soon skip that kind of effort.

Yeah, ditto on the Givi bars. They are quality units. You can save a bunch on Givi stuff from this retailer in Italy ;
