K1600 "Crash" Engine protection bars
Hi All. I'm interested in putting engine protection bars on my brand new K1600GT. Any feedback from owners who have installed or had bars installed would be appreciated. Info on what brand and type you are using and how much you like them would be very helpful. Thanks.
Ilium Works Crash Bars and Highway Pegs
[QUOTE=mike m;878828]I stuck with the OEM bars after some have reported Ilium and AltRider bars touch down in spirited riding. Also, I prefer the way the GT looks with the BMW crash bars.[/QUOTE]
I installed the Ilium Works system - gift from my wife for Christmas. They went on without any problems (make sure you don't tighten anything until all bolts are started). They blend in very well, and offer great protection. I can't see them from the cockpit until I flip the highway pegs out. I was afraid they'd make the bike look ugly and wide, but they look great!!
I think I would have preferred the Altrider because they give better tip over protection, but you can't beat a gift!!
