Twisted Throttle-Scratch and Dent

I just received a pair of "scratch and dent" Crash Bars for my 650 from Twisted Throttle's website.
Supposed "light surface rust" according to the super-nice gal I ordered from, I would have never known they weren't new off-the-shelf, except for the 50% price tag.

Looks like they are only 35% off now, but there are some for 650's as well as the 1000's.

Good luck friends!

Same here, I couldn't find anything at all wrong with them except the plastic bolt caps were missing.

I think sometimes they are just returns that they can't sell as new.. I've had good luck with scratch and dent..

I ordered engine guards for the Vee. They were fantastic to deal with over the phone ... though I would have prefered the 50% discount, 35% isn't that bad. Overall it's less than half of what my buddy paid to get a set shipped over for his Honda Veradero. Thanks for pointing this out.

Now, to get a new tire ...
