My T-Rex crash bars arrived today. Installation was easy, mostly because I had my computer in the garage with me so I could play the installation video as it didn't come with instructions. FWIW, I'm the guy who has to remind himself righty tighty; lefty...well you get my point. It took almost as long to unpack them as it did to install them - those T-Rex folks really packed it well, I'm not too sure a drunk gorilla could have damaged them in the box.
As I was finishing up and tightening each bolt after the bars were installed my daughter walks out in the garage and tells me that they look like they were made for the bike. It was as positive of an endorsement as I could have hoped for. Like virtually everyone else who buys a farkle, I am biased to like the one that I purchased, but I have to say in all honesty, these seem like really nice bars.
They may be a little to high for highway bars, but that is what a bash plate is for, right?
I wasn't to sure I'd like the slider pucks from the video and few pictures that I've seen online of the bars, but they aren't too bad at all.
Next farkle for me will likely be some auxiliary lights, mounted to these bars. The way these '17 650 turn signals are so low on the bike will deter me from mounting lights up high on the bike so I'll opt for the 'triangle' for daytime conspicuity and will find a nice solution mounting them to these bars. I think I found a decent spot to mount them where they'll be protected (mostly) in the event of a drop; time will tell.
Anyone that lives near Tampa who wants to watch someone fry a bike's wiring harness while trying to install some lights should send me a PM, this could get entertaining...
