Crash bars

I have a 2011 DL650A and am curious if these bars are factory or aftermarket. They clamp together in front of the engine and have a allen head bolt on each side and several rivet looking fasteners on the sides also. Its probably not rivets but that is what they look like.....not sure how I would remove them to install frame sliders. Share the knowledge with me please

They look like givi crash bars to me. The rivet looking things are screw caps. You may need some slightly shorter bolts if you remove them and return that feature back to stock.

okay, caps make sense....thank you for the response. I was under the impression they were stock bars but I guess not.

Agreed, those look like the Givi crash bars. Unless you really hate them, I'd consider leaving them on. Mine have already saved my bike twice.

They look like Givi's to me also. There are four 6mm cap screws on each side, and if you do remove them be careful as they are engine mounting bolts. Remove and resecure one side at a time. The crash bar kit came with longer cap screws.
