I missed out on these cheap bars but using their part number I found a brand new set on eBay going for 120.  I offered 100 and they're now mine  :152:

Yes, I did suspect that some were bulk buying the, too good to be true, 44 bargain ones, to sell on. Still a bargain @ 100  :046:

Hello, I just got a set of these bars and before I go and buy the wrong tool/bit, what size hex do I need to fit these bars?  Cheers in advance.

My set came with all the bolts included. You should chase them up, to find you a set   :169:

I know its an old thread but I see a another forum member has a set of these for sale on eBay.
Question is do they protect the alternator cover and engine cover the other side from hitting the deck if the bike falls over (like when some silly twot forgets to put the side stand down  :138::187:

Yes they do.  Fully protect all of the front lower engine.

So do allow me to share my mishap with you....  :003:

I was on a slow speeds agility skills course, before I had adjusted the ridiculous clutch position, and stalled the bike on a lean angle that was too tight to rescue. The bike dropped to its side and I jumped off and picked it right back up. Easy as. No damage at all and the minor scrape under the bar was touched up when I got home.

Too good to be so cheap  :169:
