I have the Givi bars. I like them... solid, look good, and as long as you add a little caulk at the bottom connectors, no vibration. Only issue I've had is a little rust on the swivel where the three point connector is screwed into the engine mounts holes. Keeps peekin' through the Rustoleum...

i have the genuine suzuki "Black" crash bars, i have only purchased these in the last month and they have an extra vertical piece of pipework that run vertically "up" from near the cross over bracket "left to right side brace".
No noises, vibrations. Quality and finish appears great. Fit up was a piece of piss, just use your tension wrench.
I have already lightly tested, i had my bike on the center stand on the grass and the bloody thing fell over on the right hand side, between the crash bars and the rear footpeg taking the wieght no ther damage or marks. Job done.

PS - i have not seen pictures of mine anywhere and the spares guy at "Suzuki" only mentioned their existance as the titanium colored ones were on back order.

I will endevour to get some images up soon.

here is some images of Suzuki's own offering, these are marketed as "Black Crash Bars" which is another option to the "Titanium" colored ones you see in all the media
