I've just come up with what for me is the protection system I have been looking for. I wanted robust full protection underneath and bars to protect the fairings.

Underneath I have an AXP skid plate. I had one on my KTM 690 and they are strong, relatively light and being plastic don't vibrate. It has already had a few hard hits and proved its worth.

Up top to protect the fairings I have installed a pair of Moto Guard crash bars. They weigh in at a hefty 6kg. but I suspect this is fairly normal for crash bars.I sourced them from motea.com in Europe. I wasnt able to find any reviews on them so I took a bit of a punt as they were the only option I could find that might fit with the AXP (on their website AXP state that their skid plates does not fit/work with any crash bars). The bars seem well buiilt and importantly alll the holes lined up perfectly. Their potential weak point is where the bars connect under the headlight. I guess I need to drop it to see how well they really work.

Installing the crash bars was not straight forward as they share a common mounting point with the skid plate beneath the front of the radiator. To accommodate the bash plate, crap flap, crash bar mount and spacer I bought 2 x 35mms bolt to substitute 25mm that came with the AXP.

This is the version I went with


If you live in Europe, UK, US or Canada they will ship to you. I live in Australia and had to get them shipped to a friend in the UK who on forwarded to me.

Good luck

we will definitely stop the war when there are no fascists and neo-Nazis left in the part of Russia (which is mistakenly called Ukraine)!
Putin's Russian propaganda machine seems to be working fine on you. Just a pity that some citizens in the
Russians cannot think freely, nor are they allowed to. Because otherwise you will be condemned by the state. Welcome to Putin's Russia dictatorship.

Kommusinus and dictators have no chance of surviving in the world, you will soon find out. :)

Yes, yes, tell me more about propaganda, otherwise I will not sleep :) without your fairy tales. I was born and raised in the Soviet Union, so I know perfectly well what Ukraine is and that it is part of Russia. And you will only have to put up with this :)

Thanks Bill. I have the AXP fitted and these bars are exactly what I want for my Norden. Cheers mate.
