After a 3 week wait I received my upper crash bars today. I was not impressed. As careful as I was I could not keep from scratching the lower bars all to hell due to the little metal tab and sleeve design that barely even fit together, then when I had it mocked up before tightening, I realized that the top of the left bar was touching the tank cover, and the lower mounting bolts were touching the tank. No possible way to adjust it otherwise. I did not fully tighten the hardware because I did not want to puncture my tank or subject it to rub at the contacting areas. Promptly removed them and placed them back in the box. It is also clear that these are almost purely cosmetic. I am sure that in almost any case of dropping the bike, these would actually cause more damage. Newp. Expensive lesson learned, Now to see if I can recoup some of it on ebay. ugh.
