Holan Crash bar - good or no good ?

Im getting a bit annoyed with my present crash bar from SW Motech as its a royal PITA to get on and of AND needs to be removed to get the two lower faring bolts out. Also the rear mounting on the frame is tiresome at best.

Im warming to the idea of getting one from Holan in Poland http://holan.pl/gb/lc8-950-990-adv-r...l#.VM9-yGiG8uA

Does anybody have any experience with this Crash bar ?

Have you done the crashbar stud mod? That makes reinstallation of the crashbars a LOT Easier.

Cool!

That's the first time I've seen a quick release setup for a skidplate.
And I like it.

The old SW design for the 950 with the rear mount that went through the swing arm bolt was pretty good, they should have kept that. I got a set from my friend that owns a shop but they don't fit the 990 because the front mount uses the head light assembly mounts and it hit the computer under the headlight.

AliveDK, yup. Makes it easier. I have Safari tanks so no crashbars any more.

agree, from what I have heard the crash bars can cause more trouble then worth in a crash by digging into dirt and rocks and cause the bike to flip and what not. With no crash bars the bike is more likely to just slide over things and not get hung up on stuff when trying to re right it. Those tanks are heavy plastic that can take a good hit.
