    Crash/Hwy bar: single or dual

    Hi guys,

    I am new to the forum and have a question about crash bars.

    I just purchased a 07 C50 and looking to buy crash bars for it. I have been looking on Ebay and found some in my price range but I see there are some that are one piece mounts that wrap around the bottom of the bike then I see others that are actually two individual pieces. Both look like they mount on the same areas.

    Is there really any difference or benefits from going with one versus another?

    Thanks

    The one piece might be a tad stronger BUT......
    Beware of ones that stick out too far to the side at the bottom.
    It's fairly easy to snag them on a curb if you take a turn too short and actually cause a problem instead of helping solve one.

    Try a copy and paste of the Ebay address.....as plain text......or edit it slightly, like www(dot)ebay.com.whatever

    It is gonna be impossible to tell the quality from a picture. You don't want to go TOO cheap or it will be a waste of money.

    Show Chrome or Lindby would be good choices. I would recommend the Lindby Multibar, It offers 2 functions and eliminates the need to look for riding pegs. It's highly rated.
    As long as it's not them that has to pay, no one really minds the debt.

    My opinion: the welds look thin and the chrome is cheap. These prices usually indicate Chinese made. Lindby is an American product. I'm currently waiting for a call back from a parts dealer to see where Show Chrome is produced. If you compare the finishes, you'll notice the less expensive ones look cheap. As Easy stated, if you go cheap, you'll get a cheap product.

    I would get on Ebay or Craiglist for someone selling a good set used vs buying cheap Chinese made stuff new. Of course new American made is best of all because you really know what you are getting. All else being equal, I'd want the one piece... ALL ELSE BEING EQUAL being the most important thing.
