Product Details

   AltRider Crash Bars and Frame Slider Kit

These premium crash bars drawn from 1-inch stainless steel tubing, protect your engine casing and plastics from the wrath of the pavement. The AltRider crash bars are designed for the impact load to be transferred to the frame, not the hardware. Unlike steel powder coated products, our stainless crash bars won't ever rust, even after they're scratched. Installation is easy since the bars bolt on quickly using existing mounts. The Frame Sliders are made from abrasion and impact resistant plastic, these sliders integrate seamlessly into the AltRider Crash Bar mount by attaching via billet aluminum offset, designed to effectively transfer the impact load to the crash bars. Because of the direct mount to the bars, the frame avoids damage that can occur in a crash when frame sliders are bolted directly to the frame itself.


This kit does not include the short engine bolt required to run the crash bars without the frame sliders. If you would like the option to run the crash bars alone, you should order the crash bars and frame sliders individually.
An additional light mount kit is available for the 2015 and newer models to mount the OEM lights to the crash bars. Select "with light mount kit" from the drop-down menu to include this kit. Light mount kit not available for 2010-2014 model crash bars.

   Please note:
crash bars interfere with original mounting point of OEM auxiliary lights, mounting kit is required to continue use of OEM lights.

poor quality--cracked at contact point
I like to look and finish of these crash bars, but one of my bars has cracked/split at the main aft contact point. The bike did not fall over onto the bar and nothing impacted the bar. There is not a scratch on it! I am not a metallurgist or anything like that, but I do own a sailboat and I am quite familiar with stainless steel products and their performance levels. Stainless steel should not break like this. Cheap, basic steel or Chinese-made products, yes, but NOT stainless steel. I called AltRider about the defective bar, but they refused to replace it since it had been purchased over a year ago. No standing behind their products or rider kinship at this company--just strict adherence to their company policy. Thanks AltRider... DO NOT BUY THESE BARS!
