Default New crash bar - imported from Oz.

Thanks to Brasher, I got a new crash bar to: a) replace the lindbar I had (a little too big for my taste) and b) replace the Bung King bar I bought that wouldn't fit due to interference with my Ultracool oil cooler.

I saw a post by brasher showing this bar. I reached out to him and got the contact info for the company in Australia who made it. A couple emails, a $300 paypal and 9 days later it arrived. Took me about 6 minutes to pull the Lindbar and bolt this on. A perfect fit. Very psyched.

This is the guy: http://hdhooligans.bigcartel.com/ - doesn't have the crash bar on his site, so I filled out the contact form and Josh got back to me the next day. Good guy, great communications.

This is the bar. Sorry about the big photos, too lazy to resize.

Looks GREAT, I was considering the Bung king bar, but I didn't like the relocation of the voltage regulator. it looks like the way to go.

Is it soley for trying to prevent damage in a lay-down/crash or is there a way to mount pegs on the ends for cruising with your feet out?

Did you change your clutch cable routing to the right side or are all LR-S' like that?

I like the big pictures

Mchad will that bar be out far enough to protect the tank in case of a lay down?

Nice, I've been in the market for one of these and I think you sold me on it.

Yeah, that's the idea. Really more for a parking lot drop mostly. I don't think any crash bar is going to do much at speed. Havnt ridden with it yet, so I haven't tried to put my feet up on it. I've read that some put non slip on it for their feet. Don't know yet though.

Yes, I did run it up the right frame bar as it was too tight coming up the left with my taller bars and all. This fixed it nicely. Saved me having to pull the pipes off to change the cable.

Not really sure. Like I said, I doubt any bar would work in anything more then a pretty slow speed drop.

Just to add, it's exactly the same width as the BK bar, for what thats worth.

I want one of these but don't know how it'll work with my forward controls. OP-how do you like the ultra cool oil cooler? Does it make much of a difference?
