Added mini crash bars

So I add those mini crash bars today. I like the look it gives my bike, I am not sure of the pouches that come with the bars. I do like the bigger pouch because it is perfect for carrying my battery tender when I go to the shore for days or a week. I also painted them with plasti-dip and high temp matte clear paint, I prefer the matte finish rather than the gloss.

Package with bars showed up today, installed them as soon as I got home from work. Hoped they would be a bit wider but anyway the bike looks better

I like them, they are wide enough to protect some of the expensive bits!

Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool.

Dolphin, I was looking at these crash bars too with the 'convenient pouches' as well. I would like to eventually find a way to put highway pegs on them. Do you think these bars would work with some type of aftermarket footpeg mod? Thanks!

Hiya Makani2018, I have these very same crush bars and also looked at that possibility, Im afraid I found the bars to be mounted too high up to comfortably ride with high pegs on them, the riding position would be too awkward.

I think you absolutely can put highway pegs on them.

I am thinking with the GIVI bars you would be able to adapt something to fit on where the lower fastener holds the crash bars to the Rebel. You could use SAE Grade 8 hardened bolts and attach the pegs onto the bolts.
