Has anyone bought/installed these? They look to be more integrated to the design of the 12 Wee than even the Suzuki branded one.
Thanks,
Paul

I myself am looking to buy the crash guards. To me the OEM Suzuki crash bars look OK and I'm almost convinced to order them from my dealer but it would be interesting to hear different opinions.

Bars

Anyone have a comment on the Happy Trails bars? They appear to be taller than other brands and could offer better protection.

I have them on my 2006.

Never 'tested' them yet, though most reviews indicate they offer the best protection with no vibration.

There was an issue with powder coat in the threads on mine which caused them to be replaced by the seller, AdventureMotostuff.com.

People often have difficulty reading the torque specs in Newtonmeters due to the German instructions, but there are conversion websites on the internet.

Review of Hepco & Becker Crash Bars
Thanks for the info!
I have read that review. I really like the fact that the outline matches the new side vents and makes the crash bars look very specific for the bike. They just seem to match. At least for the 2012's.
