hey. If anyone is or has installed the crash bars, please post picks.


I'm interested in seeing what these rebels look like with them as well with the saddle bags attachments.


thanks

I really like that passenger seat/rack combo. If anyone can find out where I could get one it would be much appreciated.

the accessories you can get at Honda. not much for aftermarket right now for these. though oddly, Honda doesn't have a listing for the crash bars. lol.


The other thing is, saddle bags don't come with hardware. which is irritating to me. and if you just get the saddle bags and supports, its gonna look horrible without the passenger seat and or the storage support that sits at very back, behind the passenger seat.


Least that's what I've found for what digging I was able to do.


Clean slate bike, but customization wise, or accessories, you kinda gotta go all the way, or not at all.


That being said, that's just my point of view.

My legs have been cramping up lately and could really use a highway/crash bar, or even highway pegs at this point.
Anyone seen or are using an alternative to the crash bar mentioned above? at almost $300 on ebay the price for that set is a bit hard to swallow.

I have been thinking about the same, would have been nice to have the option to stretch out the legs a little.
But I really don't like the look of the crash bar, just doesn't suit the bike at all from my liking.
And sadly havn't seen much of other options either...
But, someone will surely want to make money of something like this with time, so it'll show up at some point.

did no one see that that bike in the video/pic above doesn't have the brick of a tail light? lol. just pointing it out! lol. but your right, saddle bags without the pass seat and rear carrier, looks dumb. Nicest I can put it. And the fact that the mounts don't come with the saddle bags, that's just downright retarded. Nevermind the price! The price is almost extortion! my opinion anyway. lol.

I installed the $240 eBay crash bars on Friday and wanted to post pics of what they look like so everyone can get an idea. They look good but the install was not that easy. Had to grind down the 2 spacers on the right side because the clamp was too tight to fit them. That's Taiwan quality I guess and I still like them. It just should've been a 10 minute install.

Weird, they are made by Honda I havent seen anyone else having trouble fitting them.

This is what I've been looking for. Couple questions though, is it comfortable to ride w/ feet on the guards, and if so how tall are you?

Thanks

In response to being able to stretch out your legs on those eBay H2C crash bars... if you don't mind the "being folded in half" feeling you can reach the top. I wouldn't personally use them for footpegs but I don't like having my feet in that position. I'm a pretty short lady tho, like 5'5" in my boots (130 lbs) so I don't really need to stretch on this bike. Could use a better saddle cushion tho...

As for the quality, is H2C a Honda OEM maker? It wasn't shipping damage because they arrived wrapped very well, the part was just bent too much in and that was how it was made. I may have got the only shabby one ever made who knows. I made it work I guess, I just wanted to give you peeps the heads up.
