I love custom stuff on my bike, but I am always concerned how much weight I am adding. So for those that like to keep track, I measured the actual weight of my new Givi crash bars (TN532) for my DL650.

1. With all the hardware (9 long screws, 2 small screws, 1 washer, 2 plates, etc.) it came out to: 3984 gr. (8.78 lb)

2. I took away the 8 long screws that is on the bike anyway the new weight is: 3883 gr. (8.56 lb)

3. Just the crash bars without any hardware is: 3488 gr. (7.68 lb)

I come from a trials motorcycle and biketrials background where weight is crucial (keeping the bikes as low weight as possible). I kept the habit of keeping track of the weight on all my machines.

Hope it helps other strommers that were wandering about the weight of these bars.

Cool that's not as bad as I would have expected.

It's about 8.8 lbs for the total set for anybody who needs to convert...

I can't help wondering if the scale sitting on a flexy cardboard box would affect the reading. I've always read/heard that the scale should be on a firm, level surface to be accurate.

Nope, it's not flexing, the box is very sturdy and the bars are not touching the box either. Checked it numerous times, it's accurate, believe me, this is the actual weight. ;) Also the scale's bottom is flat, no little legs.
