Bygdawg C-14 Tip-Over Bars soon available...
« on: May 26, 2011, 04:47:28 pm »
http://www.bygdawg.com/

I will be offering both front and rear tip-over bars for the C-14 and ST-1300. The site price will be $220 for the rears for non COG members, and $200 shipped for COG members (inside the U.S.). These bars will protect your side bags, exhaust, top box, and mirrors in the case of a tip-over. I am also working on a redesign of the front bars for those of you that may prefer something a bit more inconspicuous.

Ride Safe,
Jay H. aka bygdawg

If anyone is interested in a group buy, I might could get them down to $190 or so, if we have 15 or more orders. Like I always tell people, you only need them if you plan to drop your bike. Then again, who plans to drop their bike, right?  :))

I am interested in the back protectors. I would be interested in the front if they are designed like the kawasaki ones available in Europe, but don't cost $5-600.

I emailed him and let him know if he makes them for the ZX14 I will give him advertising on the zx14ninjaforum forums which has a large membership which is growing daily as new owners find out about it on google.

Thanks guys. I am working on a new front style that will be less intrusive.

Interested. Would like to see photos of how the front and rear mount. Also if rear passenger ProektD lowering pegs hit the rear bars.

Do the passenger footpegs have to be relocated for your rear tip over guards?

There is no drilling or cutting required to use these. The rear pegs DO NOT have to be relocated. Both the front and rear mount to existing bolt hole locations. I do not have a complete cost for the fronts as of yet, but I expect that both front and rear together will be somewhere in the $500 range. Hwy. pegs and/or lights can be mounted to the front bars with ease. Thanks for the interest. Keep in mind that the bars will more than pay for themselves the first time they are used. Repeat usage will result in even further savings. ;-)

Just ordered via the Website - what is that actually going to get me? Just the rear bars?  When are the front bars going to be available?

Yes. $220 is just the rear bars. I am still a few weeks out from getting them powder coated. I sent you an email letting you know that I would be happy to refund your money, if you wanted to wait until that time, or just put you on the ship list. As it stands, you would be looking at a late June ship date. Once I complete the front re-design, I will be posting pics. of those as well to let people choose whether they like those better than the ones pictured now. Those ordering rear sets will receive a discount on the front bars.

Ride Safe,
Jay H.

Thanks a lot, Jay, I really appreciate it.  We can take the refund discussion to email, but you can definitely keep me on the list  for reminding once they're available - I'll be wanting both the front and rear bars.  While riding the ACH hard yesterday, I was constantly thinking that I would feel much better about having some crash protection.

I'm looking forward to seeing the re-design if they're going to be less obtrusive.

Do the rear tip over bars impair the rear foot pegs?

I just added ProjktD rear peg arms to move the pegs for the wife.

What are your thoughts on just installing the front crash bars on the C14?

I don't see that the rear bars interfere with the passenger room at all. I don't think I'd just go with the front bars alone. I'd be more likely to go with the rear bars alone than the front alone, as a replacement bag will run you around a cool grand, if you have to replace the whole bag. Like I always say, you don't need any protection, until you need it. AT that time, if you don't have it, it's too late. You get what you pay for, and I'd certainly invest in some protection for my $15,000 machine. YMMV

I've got over $25,000 in my ZX14 so far (FULL carbon fiber, ceramic coated Brock's titanium exhaust system, GIVI, C14 2010 seat, custom LSL handlebar configuration, etc.) and its heading to the dark side of $35k soon when I get the Ohlins R/T fork and shock, and Marchesini cast magnesium wheels, and A&A supercharger.

I sure would be happy to be a rolling billboard for you at bike shows etc. if you make them for the ZX14. Remember, the ZX14 and C14 frames are virtually identical, just different brackets.

I just put Barrier Bars on the front, so all I need are the rear bars. They should fit just fine, same bolt hole pattern, same sub-frame used. C14 is just a neutered ZX14.
