    All prices are with free shipping in the lower 48 US states.

    Typically it's a 4-6 week process from when I place my order with Rumbux in South Africa and when you get your crash bars on your doorstep. I've been doing this for years now and have the process down, but you never know with international import stuff. Customs sometimes does weird things and some of it is unpredictable.

    Rumbux crash bars are an integrated 3-Part kit. The upper crash bars are bolted to the bike and to the lower bash frame making the whole cage stronger than any one part or mounting point. They have proven themselves to take major abuse and allow the bike to survive, or at worst, sustain much less damage than w/o them. I do offer the 2-Part kit as well, which is just the lower bash frame and integrated 4.5mm skid plate that bolts to the bash frame, not to the bike. 6 bolts to easily take off for oil changes.



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

    Do they make any for the 2013 F800GS? I went on their site and shows to 2012 only.

    The mounting points remain the same, but the upper bodywork required a new design for upper crash bars.

    Edit - The upper bodywork changes in '13 meant Rumbux needed to make new upper bars to go with the kits, so now there is a kit for '07-12 and '13-up.

    Rumbux now has crash bar systems with integrated skid plate for the '08-12 F650/F700/F800GS bikes and the newer '13-on F800GS. Different unit to deal with the fairing changes and it looks sweet.

    Crash Bar Bags are $80/Pair designed to fit the Rumbux bars specifically.

    Maybe the thread is so quiet because a Google turns up very little info or feedback on these crash bars in the US. They look awesome and I would love to get a set but $800 is a lot of coin for an unknown. If you can point me in the direction of some reviews and/or more information i would love to see it.

    I responded in that other thread too. Yes, I am getting ready to place another order shortly, but I have some un-sold KTM products due next week too. PM me concerning local discount. (no shipping required)

    There have been some changes with Rumbux in nomenclature and for crash bar bags, materials and trim. The Reflective gray trim for soft products is no longer available, aside from what I show in stock. The heavy Corduraâ„¢ nylon has been discontinued and the new soft products are made of a heavy rip stop canvas in charcoal color. I have some on order and will post pictures when I receive them. Ii have been told that the quality is a step up from the previous products, which was quite good, so fully expect the new soft products to be very nice.

    What has been called "Crash Bars" will now be called "Protection Bars" The 3-Part Kit is now referred to as the "Full Spec Endurance Protection Bars" but still is the same product that consists of upper crash bars, lower bash frame and skid plate. Rear bars are now "Endurance Rear Protection Bars" but still the same products that accept most brands of soft panniers and Mosko Moto products. Below is a listing of all the hard products and bar bags. Zero indicates no stock on hand. I will change these as stock becomes available, but I can order anything you see below as well as other Rumbux soft products like tail bags, tank bags and handlebar bags. The soft products cost more to import so aside from the crash bar bags, I don't generally stock them, but will order anything if you want a specific item, just let me know.

    Rumbux is now offering products for the BMW R1200GS-LC, Honda Africa Twin and Husqvarna 701. Tell your friends. :wink:

    Pics of the R1200GSA with Full Spec Endurance Protection bars in place. OEM lights have been moved to a combo of Touratech and Rumbux light brackets. (Not fully happy with that, but it works).

    Skid plate is 6.5mm thick Aluminum. Previous Rumbux skid plates have been 4.5mm, but the Big GS/GSA gets this upgrade.

    Rumbux is closing for their annual holiday between Dec 13th and Jan 8th. I am trying to get an order together for before they close. This means I can only order what they have in stock, and I'm trying to clarify what that is. If you have any immediate interest in Rumbux products, please let me know ASAP and we may be able to get it shipped out of South Africa by Dec 12th. This is an air cargo order, so it will be in the US only a few days to a week later, depending on flight schedules, and get shipped to you via UPS ground after I re-package it. Might not be in time for Christmas, due to the Christmas UPS rush, but potentially it could be, or soon after.

    Thanks and Happy Holidays to everyone!!

    Hi JCV - They don't appear to have anything in stock for the F800GS, but I'll double check. I can certainly start building an order for after Rumbux's holiday break, but it would be Feb before those were delivered.

    Right now I don't stock much, but rather order on demand. I need a minimum of 5 people in on an order to initiate it. Once I place the order with Rumbux, it's 6-8 weeks on average before customers see the bars on their door step. I do air cargo shipments from Rumbux, but the bulk of the time is in getting scheduled for the production and them producing the bars. They typically don't carry much inventory on hand. Just like most companies, keeping less inventory on hand allows them to use money for other things, as needed, instead of tying it up as inventory that may or may not fit with customer demand. I like to keep a bit of everything on hand, but place small orders often. Winter is the slow season though and I was preparing to move multiple states away, so had trimmed my inventory down preparing for that move. Life has gotten in the way and complicated things, so I'm still doing orders, but in limbo a bit.

    Eric,

    I just bought a 2015 F800GS. I'm looking for a set of their front crash bars/bash plate. Any chance you have one?
