As long as you don't attach it the same way the OEM does...

It's happening. A dealership about 5 hours away just dropped the MSRP down almost $2k. He has 4 Ravens on the floor and I hope to claim one. I'll be trading in the battered Vee-Strom. She served me well but I've been oogling these ST's the day Yamaha mentioned their US release. Hopefully I can make it happen this weekend if the Strom parts arrive in time.

Any guys in the US interested in a group buy for Rumbux Crash bars?

I've had loads of inquiries regarding these, but shipping usually is a problem. If the order is big enough, the savings will be pretty big.

We currently have one guy in the states importing these:
http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=787630

Dunno if he's going to continue, but he can speak to that.

I personally had a mounting tab for the uppers take a pretty nice bend on my first drop. The bars are now off the bike and in my garage so that I can bend the tab back to normal.

Do you have any tip-over experience with these bars on? I still have concerns about the load being pretty focused on that one tab. The bars feel really solid and there are many many people who are happy with them so hopefully my fall just landed perfectly (read: unluckily) my experience is an exception. The skid plate is quite nice and I may end up pairing it with a different set of uppers.

FWIW, Eric (DirtyBike) has been quick to respond and very helpful with input whenever requested. He's an excellent vendor to deal with and hopefully will continue to import these into the US for those who want them.

If he is willing to bring them in, that perfectly fine and I dont want to meddle in his business.

According to the manufacturer, he does not have stock at the moment.

My solutions was that, if some of the owners would like some bars, please let me know as I sell them locally and have had at least 10 inquiries from the US in the last 3 month.

Just want to offer assistance or a solution.

Something doesn't quite add up. It's either a part they never considered to fail so it is not stocked nor imported, or they can't count.

I have a feeling they better step up production and imports of oil pans, much like BMW is finally doing with their final drives.
Happened to me and a riding body, he had a custom made bash plate from 2020.com that just shaved his oil pan and I broke the access plate from a stone in a narror drop.

My fix was easy but on the way i changed the OEM plate to connect to the frame insted of to the oil pan allowing it to bend without brreaking it again



i will take a picture of the modification to the OEM plate when the sunrise again in the this part of the world

Nice shot!

Can kinda see your rear bash plat mount mod. Similar to Altrider mount.

It's only because he owns the blue one, the other colors can't do all that.
