Like a few other owners, I bought and fitted the Givi engine bars after tipping off the other month. Didn't think a lot of the finish or fit, actually, but hey. Having ridden with them on, I couldn't believe the increase in vibration they caused. since I get on really well with the retailer in Leicester, I e-mailed both Givi UK and the retailer to ask about sending them back, stating that I was not alone, referring them to this site, etc.
I got prompt replies from both, inviting me to return the bars for refund, and I've just received the refund by post. Moral - complain, but be fair; it's worth it.
I read the posts from folks that had fitted the SW-Motech bars, and they all seemed to be favourable, so I ordered a set of these. Took a while to come, but arrived last Friday, and fitted today. Fit is very simple, finish much better than the Givi ones. They're also not not so big and ugly. Vibration I don't know about yet, 'cos it's f***ing freezing here at the moment, so it can wait for warmth! :?
On another topic, what tyre are you all using for road work? I'm not too impressed with the Trailwings, and I wonder if some BT020's would suit better?
See you, Simon.
