    8/23/17 - I am currently placing orders on demand. If I have 3 on board I will place a new order with Rumbux. Current pricing is as follows. Feel free to re-post this to other forums along with my email addy eric.gonedark@gmail.com All prices are with free shipping in the lower 48 US states.

    It's a 4-6 week process from when I place my order with Rumbux to when you get your bars on your doorstep. Customs and other issues can sometimes tie things up, but I've been doing this for years now and have the process down. It's Airport to Airport shipping, so not cheap, but it's the easiest way to get products into the US in a timely manner. Down side is I can't place orders for 1 or 2 sets as the costs are too high. With an order of 5 or more, it costs out so that you get a fair price on the products.

    The Rumbux Full Spec Endurance Protection bar kit is an integrated system that has an upper crash bar frame, (or Left/Right bars), that is bolted to a lower bash frame and the bike. The 4.5 mm, (6mm for R1200GS LC), aluminum skid plate is bolted to the lower bash frame with 6 easy to access bolts. All tubing is steel and 1", (25mm), diameter tubing. The structure of the system is designed so that it's stronger than any one pieces and able to sustain a large hit and distribute the impact forces over the entire unit, not just one piece or one area of mounting points.

    They have a good match for the KTM Orange, but as some of you know, KTM changes colors like underwear, so they try to update, but can't guarantee a perfect match to every bike. Prices are the same for Orange or Black on the KTM bars. Please seen the end of the thread for current inventory and pricing.



    I'm trying to keep the price competitive. This is the only integrated system that I've seen and it's TOUGH. This type of system has been out for years now and has proven itself. It takes a beating and saves your bike/plastic.

    Got questions? Please ask them! PM and email are fine too.

    Just called Eric and put my order in.

    IMO, this is a really good value if you want a full "roll cage" package for your 1190: $800 for skid plate + crash bars + upper crash bars in one unit, including shipping.

    Compare:

    $306 KTM crash bars
    $349 Touratech upper crash bars
    $290 KTM skid plate
    = $945, and that's before shipping -- if you can find everything in stock.

    Is it possible to get a replacement bash plate when the inevitable happens? :y0!

    Yes. The current 4.5 mm aluminum bash plate runs ~$80 with shipping. I try to keep one in stock.

    I can also now get crash bar bags for the Rumbux upper crash bars. Waterproof/Dustproof zippers and very nice, secure velcro attachement at 3 or 4 places, depending on which bars. I've been testing the Super Ten version with a pre-preduction version and they rock. Nice to have the extra storage for stuff you want to get to quickly. And they come off and go on very easily, so can be taken inside the motel room at night if need be.

    The bags are held on by three pairs of velcro flaps. One side is hook, the other loop. These are large enough that you loop one side around the bar, then fold the mating flap over that. Lots of overlap. These are very secure, to any speed the bikes are capable of. And yet, come off quickly and easily too, when you want them to! Edit - The bags are not just fabric, but the front and back panels are padded, and the middle will fold up well, but also appears to be double thickness. Nice touches.

    Here is a good shot of the old style F800GS bag. It's smaller, uses four pairs of velcro flaps and fits on either the top hoop or middle one. The on bike shots are my wife's F650GS2 with brand new Rumbux guards on it. Note the waterproof zipper.

    The piping trim is no longer available in colors or reflective gray. Charcoal Ripstop Canvas is the current color and material and the quality is excellent.

    I can now order Crash Bar Bags and handle bar bags, as well!
    [​IMG]

    $85/pair for the Crash Bar Bags (I get stuck with import duties on the soft products)

    The handle bar bags are priced at $95 (more complex to make)

    I am able to order rear protection bars/Soft Pannier mounts for KTMs and soft panniers to fit those!

    Howdy,

    Interested in the Rumbux crash bars for the KTM 1190 Adventure R. What is the current pricing for:
    - The full crash bar (3 pc.)
    - The add-on kit for the stock crash bar
    I would also like to know the weight of each option. My R has the stock crash bar but I could sell it to recoup some cost. Or I can add the add-on kit but I'll need to get a good bash plate to go with it. I'm not sure I like the bash plate on the 3-piece - it's thinner than the good ones and the bolt heads are exposed. Would like to have photos of the whole bike from the side with both options. Anyway, do your best to answer my questions - it looks like there is still a lot of interest. Do you have plans to do another order soon?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Hi Dave - The 3-Part Kit I have in stock now, which is Orange, is priced at $800 w/free shipping to anywhere in the lower 48 US states. (that will go up to $850 on the next order)

    The Add On to OEM bar that gives increased protection to the upper areas of the bike is $425, again with free shipping.(not in stock)

    The bash plate is 4.5mm thick, which is .177" or .010" of an inch under 3/16" for reference. The difference is it's backed up by the 1" dia. steel tubing lower bash frame, not just a cover over the bottom of the engine/sump.

    The bolt heads are exposed, because you need to remove the skid plate for oil changes. They are button head, allen bolts, so it's unusual for damage to occur that prevents you from getting an allen wrench into them. I've ridden pretty aggressively in places like Death Valley, CA and had some 'incidents', including bottoming out that did not require any extra work in getting the bolts off to change the oil. Can it happen? You bet. Does it happen often? No. Simple as that.

    If you want, I know a guy that will make you a skid plate from 1/4" welded aluminum plate. Expect to pay about what I charge for the 3-Part Kit for that. (Ride On ADV

    The Add on bars are 8 lbs. The 3-Part Kit is 28 lbs., but that is with all hardware, much of which is replacing oem hardware with slightly longer bolts, so slightly less in actual application. Remember too, this is very well centralized around the bike, not the kind of weight you're really going to feel. The bulk is down low and centralized.

    Interest is great. I still have one set of 1190 bars in stock. I typically do not stock crash bars. I take pre-orders and place an order with Rumbux when demand is great enough for the shipping to cost out. This is how I keep my prices low and still make some profit. I'm not getting rich any time soon. The lead time between when I place an order with Rumbux in South Africa and when customers get their crash bars is usually 6 weeks. Sometimes less, sometimes, (rarely), a little more.

    I have some customers about to pull the trigger on enough sets to place a new order. That should happen in the next week or two.

    On the pictures, I don't have an 1190 myself, (would love to be able to absorb that kind of overhead!!), so I am unable to take the pics you would like. But I will see what I can do in the next few days. The upper add on bars are essentially the same as the 3-Part Kit in that area, if that helps.

    Hi

    I bought a set of 3-Part Kit (upper crash bars, lower bash frame, skid plate) Orange] from Eric before I bought the bike since its a great product and I wanted to have it on my bike, But after receiving my bike yesterday I didn't want to put anything on it . I just love the way it looks and I think the factory bars should do the job, I will take the risk in case of a crazy crash. The set is still in its wrapping as brand new.

    I lie in San francisco city , I am posting here incase anyone is interested to pick it locally. I can deliver anywhere in the city, east or south bay but will not be able to ship outside. PM or email me if interested.

    thanks

    None in stock. Next order will be placed in early to mid Jan, depending on customers. If you wish to order for the next order, likely delivering to customers around the end of Feb, the easy thing to do is place a pre-order with me. I take your CC and shipping info, but do NOT run the card until I place the order with Rumbux. This way you are locked in for the order and won't miss it, and you're not out anything until the order is placed.

    Bonus, if you want to cancel your pre-order, it's at zero penalty to you, I just never run your card and destroy your info. Once I place the order, it's a $50 cancelation fee. That just covers my CC processing fees for the original purchase and the refund, and a small amount of aggravation. :wink:

    While I usually do order a couple extra items on speculation, I can't always hang money out for that and there is zero guarantee that what you want is what I may order, though I do try to judge demand. I just can't afford to tie up that much money in inventory.

    Give me a call when you're ready at 435-817-0809 If I can't answer, please leave a message and I'll return your call as soon as possible. I work a 'day job' too, that sometimes has odd hours.
