Hepco Becker Crash bars for 1000K6

I got my bars, but as you all know the instructions are in German. And from the looks of them they are not much of instructions as they more of a parts inventory.

Any tips any one could give me for this install? I want to hit some dirt this weekend, and would love to install them tonight.

Thank you very much.

This has been gone over many times. A search would reveal more than I can share. I did the left side first. The largest of the three bolts that you will remove will be reused on the right side. That's the only trick. Left side done (do not tighten) right side on (do not tighten) cross brace on (now you can tighten them all. 30 minutes if your confident, 60 minutes if you keep referring to pictures and trying to learn german.

Looks good. Bars appear to offer a lot of protection and can bend a little before hitting any part of the bike. Good choice. Keep the shiny side up.
