There are quite a few threads on crashbars and skid plates for the 2013 Wee in the 2012+ section on this forum. Do a search and you will find them.

I am happy with my SW Motech crashbars and Touratech skid.

I have a 2013 650 also and went with Givi crash-guards and skid plate, the crash guards stick out slightly further than factory Suzuki ones which means they should protect the signal lights in event of drop, the aluminum pate looks real good with the bike.

NOT the oem crash bars

DO NOT buy the oem crash bars as they cause a severe vibration. Some people may say that theres didn't but mine and many others have. Just my 2 cents.

I've read where the Givi's also have there problems too. So it's really up the individuals liking of any one brand over another.

My Givis cause vibration, but I don't care - the protection is worth it. I just use the vibes as a shift reminder.
