So the Hepco & Becker crash bars on my 07 Wee broke, I'm guessing it's from being dropped on the right side combined with vibrations and time. I was looking around for a replacement and it looks like a lot of companies have stopped manufacturing crash bars for the first gen V-Stroms. So my question is: what are the best crash bars still available that also work with my Adventure Motostuff skid plate (also discontinued)? It appears H&B, Givi, and SW Motech crash bars are still available but the H&B crash bars look to be a new design so I'm not sure they would work with the skid plate based on this report.

I would consider having that break repaired. Any good engeering shop or someone that is good at welding can do a repair for you. The person welding can reenforce the joint if so required. While you are at it, the complete crashbar can be then checked for any other defects.

The T-Rex bars look nice but they don't have any listed as being compatible with the older Stroms.
I think I'll see if I can find a place to weld them before committing to buying new ones.
