a great. just checked it. didn't know they make also stuff for 1190 .

the question again is the same as before umitc .

Do the mount points seem ok or they feel like they can do more bad on the bikes frame than good.

Also, how is it with a fallen bike? does it touch down with the tank fairing or its protected by the bars completely ?

There are several options. I am between two. OEM and SW-Motech.

My main question about the OEM is, if the bike lays on the side, do they protect just the engine ? Do the upper tank fairings touch down with the OEM crash bars ? If yes then is just a waste of money and i should go with the SW-Motech.

The OEM crashbars.



And the SW-Motech




PS. Rumbux is not an option. I don't want my bike to look like being in jail.
I use OEM crashbars. The upper fairing don't touch in case of slow fall. No guarantee in case of crash.

My feeling with SWMotech it's the crash bar protects too high. In case of falling on a rock it could damage the engine.

Not doing much off road. So i dont think the rock will be the problem.
I am more interested in a side crash on the road.

I used previous crash protectors on SS bikes. In the end i had both a crash protector damaged and a fairing that was full of scratches. Thats what i try to avoid. I see that that OEM bars are pretty low, thats why my concern is if the upper part (tank) can touch down when the bike is on the side.

Last week dropped the bike on a pedestrian, nowhere else touched the ground. The best part is, the grey protection stays on the tank.

The SW might protect the bike better, but what about the rider ? I had Bars like that on my Varadero and it happend that the bike got stuck with the front = sudden stop. I slipped forward and hurt my legs on the bars. If you go offroad with the @, thats something that might happen more often.

frankly talking. i downloaded the mount instructions of SW.
I cant say that i find a great idea how those bars mount on the bike.
They look better for the protection of the bike, but what happens on the mounting points is the question.

Do you want a scratch or a damaged engine ? Cause thats were i saw that the SW mounts. Not a good idea to mount bars on an aluminium. If i understood the diagrams wrong, please feel free to correct me. It will help me decide better as well.

H&B seems a really nice option by the way.

They look like they will give good protection as they seem really well made and solid.
But their strength may actually be a weakness if your looking at keeping the weight down, especially with some of it being up high.(someone said they weigh as much again as the rest of the frame)

Has anyone had experience of having a major off on an 1190 with Rumbux as I reckon you'd save serious breakages but would still suffer scratches from debris thrown up and scratching the panels behind the bars to some extent riding dirt and gravel.

For that reason I'd rather have the benefit of less weight and live with a few "badges of honour" on the plastics until it was time to sell. My theory is the standard bars on the R give enough protection already and money not spent on upgrading them will pay for any new plastic if needed when the time comes to change bikes.

They seem big and heavy.

In the end, how expensive are the lateral plastics on the tank, in case they are scratched / broken?

I think protecting the tank itself is necessary (as other crashbars do), but with the Rumbux it looks to me you give up too much for too little in return (and still, if the bike falls on a medium or small pointy stone, those plastics will get broken even with the Rumbux).

BTW, how protective are the aluminium plates from the standard Adventure? If you put the bike down, does it get scratched?
