1200 Crash Bars?

Discussion in 'Multistrada' started by Bigjimknickers, Mar 8, 2020.

  1. What’s the opinion on crash bars then? Anyone have them & which ones are recommended?

    where mine will be stored it’ll be a bit slippery so it’s a good idea to protect it from potential mishaps if possible.

    For a 2010 1200s

  2. In my opinion and it is just that, I prefer the Ducati crash bars. Saved some damage when I managed to pull the bike on top of myself (don't ask, it's embarrassing) minimal damage to the bike and surprisingly little evidence on the bars. Crash bungs would not have been as effective. Andy
  3. The thing that always breaks on a drop is the hand guard, especially on the older style ones. Bark busters are a good investment, or there are some solid Ducati performance ones that are much more robust (but you do need to fit different indicators, there are some replacement mirrors with them in the tips which are good.)

  4. i think the third fixing point is behind the flat centre cross bar.
  5. Yes, you could be right. Oddly, I get a better picture on an iPad than a desk top PC monitor. Andy
  6. I crashed my Multistrada GT, thankfully fitted with Ducati crash bars. No damage whatsoever apart from the plastic handguard as mentioned.
    Definitely recommend them.
    Ps, bike hit wet grass rather than bounced across tarmac which obviously reduced the impact.
