Crash Bars
« on: July 04, 2019, 06:06:19 pm »
I have a 2009 1400, this is my track bike my work bike is a 2012 1400.  I need crash bars for my track bike, but unfortunately I am finding no one is making them anymore.  I am still looking for someone to fabricate me a pair with negative results.  Does anyone have any ideas on where I could locate some crash bars or a private party that fabricates?  Any input would be appreciated. Thank you.

I have never seen true crash protection on this bike.   It helps protect stuff on a tip over or <5mph booboo but protect the bike during a real crash... not really.   Top Block may come the closest.

hello, I have a 2018 concourse and I have front and rear crash bars I got off of ebay! the company is called trex and they come out of texas! I really love them! the front ones hug the curve of the lower fairings with amazing welds and are powder coated black! they have removable inserts so if it does fall they don't damage the cages! the front cages use the rear engine mount and are super strong and attach on the upper mounts as well, you do not need any modifications to the fairing! I would highly recommend them! they are not cheap, I believe I paid 400 for front and rear and the rear ones do not impeed with the stock pegs as well. just look up crash bars for Kawasaki concourse 14, I believe it says for 2013 models but they all fit fine! :)  the company is called trex racing , google them and they have a full set up!
