Engine Guards

I am looking for a set of engine guards. Does anyone know if the 2011 and 2013 are the same fit? Some brands show the same fit all models some do not. Thanks.

If you are talking the 650, then the answer is no. Go to Twistedthrottle.com you will find what you need.

Yes it is the 650. Some places list all models through 2014 as the same. Some places do not. I guess it depends on the brand of the crash bars. Thanks.

What Big B said. If you have any questions, then give them a call or send them an e-mail. I have found them to be really responsive and helpful.

Some sites say that the GIVI TN532 fit 04 through 13. Some say 04 through 11. It is a little confusing.

Depends on the manufacturer.

Givi's crashbars apparently fit all years. Another choice is sporttour.com, where I got mine. TT did not have any in stock at the time.

1995 Honda CB750 - sold
2005 Honda Rebel -sold
1990 Honda PC800 -sold
2007 DL650 - sold
2011 DL650A - current

I do know with Givi that the TN532 crashbars will fit all 650 models, but Givi have just released a new set of crashbars - TN3101 that will only fit the new shape 650.



Apparently the new ones have a bit more clearance around the front where the bars meet, to clear skid/bash plates. They are also a slightly different shape.

My bro and I have the TN532 installed, and my mate who just purchased a new L3 650 has fitted the TN3101.

The TN532 installed:
