Just been through two hours of googling so apologize in advance if this has been discussed elsewhere.

I'm interested in the Altrider Crash Bars for the 650 Vstrom but am concerned that they mount directly to the main through bolt (top engine mount). I notice that other brands (SWM, Givi, and HB) mount to the flanges on the frame where engine hangers mount. Whilst I'm no expert I would have thought that mounting to the frame rather than the engine is a better option?

Appreciate some guidance / thoughts / wisdom on the pros / cons of the Altrider design.
