Before buying crash bars for my 2011 KLR, I did a lot of searching and comparison.
Of all of the bars I found, the SW Motech bars were the most robust and in my opinion,the best looking and overall the best value. The installation was straight forward and simple, the fit perfect. Thankfully, I have not had occasion to put them to the test, but I feel that they would be solidly up to the task (Posted on 15-01-20)

I've had these since October of 14. Look sharp and weren't bad to install.. I was hoping to have these to protect the plastic and engine.. I was letting the bike idle last month to warm up and I had a right side tip-over in my driveway.. My fault, didn't have the front wheel cocked all the way to the left.. but just a tip-over bent the bar far enough to bust my right fairing.. so maybe I had a unreasonable expectation that these would protect at least just falling over.

I recently bought the crash bars for my new Klr650 2014.5...they're tough, large diameter tubed bars. It took approximately two hours to install. ..without rushing. I put a lot of research into my search and would definitely make the same purchase again, as I feel the provide more protection for the plastic than most of the other brands. (Posted on 14-11-26)

I purchased these a month ago but did not research the skidplate fitment well enough. I researched many older photos on the net that indicated these motech bars should fit with most skidplates as the rear lower mounting bracket bolted to the footpeg mount. I received the bars in a timely manner, they were packaged very well, thank you TT! But when I went to install, big problem!

I had installed a new Richochet aluminum skidplate and these bars would not fit. The problem was the lower mount for the motech crash bars had apparently recently been modified to instead now clamp to the lower frame of the bike forward of the footpegs! So most (all but motechs?) skidplates will not work. Upon further reading on their website (something I did not do thoroughly) SW Motech indicates you must now purchase one of their new skidplates in order to fit with the bars. Very proprietary and specific so BEWARE of this change!

Having no desire to purchase another new skidplate I installed several spacers underneath the rear portion of my skidplate lowering it around 3/4 inch in order to provide room for the c-clamp of the bars to fit. I have now rode over 1k miles with no issues, and am confident the skidplate will take any bashing I can throw at it.

Overall these bars are very well made, good fitment everything lined up perfectly, high quality, good finish, good looks, and will take a lot of bashing. These are my first purchase from Twisted Throttle and it went smooth as silk, thank you TT! I will be buying more in the future! (Posted on 14-11-13)

I run a moto adventure company in Kenya with 20 plus KLRS and I have bought the crash bars here at twisted throttle- items are well priced, good quality and do what they are supposed to do. They are packaged well with very thorough packaging and installation manual s and kits. Id highly recommend this parts and Ill keep buying as they have saved me and my clients tons of money and inconveniences while out on tour (Posted on 14-10-21)

This is my second set of SW-MOTECH crashbars for my 2009 KLR650. The first set, purchased in 2010, fit well and looked good but the left one bent when I went down hard one time. The bars did the job of protecting the radiator and plastics but I could not bend them back properly. Twisted Throttle does not sell the bars individually so I had to buy a new set. There have been a few design changes since the original bars. The mounting to the front downtube now has rubber grommets on the thru-bolts, presumably to reduce vibration. This seems like a good idea but I can't really tell much difference. Second, the rear-lower bars no longer mount to the footpeg bolts, but now they clamp to the frame with rubber insulation. This change may also have been to reduce vibration but again, I didn't notice much difference. Lastly, the original bars used to have a bracket for cruiser-pegs and/or riding lights. This has been replaced with a simpler piece of reinforcing steel. It looks like it might be a little stronger. All in all the bars are effective and I think worth having though the price is the additional weight. (Posted on 14-10-10)

After figuring out which skidplate to purchase with these bars, the install was not too bad. Took my inexperienced & cautious self about 3 hrs to install these + the skidplate. The fit was good, although I couldn't get an equal gap between the fairings & bars on each side. The new model bars have clamps that mount just forward of the foot pegs, which render all other skid plates (to my knowledge) un-mountable without serious trimming/grinding. The plate was a bit of a pain to install, the holes didn't align well with the KLR's front bracket (possible factory variance?) (Posted on 14-09-26)
