One installation bracket mounts both the lower and upper crash bars. If you purchased the installation bracket with the upper crash bars you will not need to buy it now.
Honda put the new Africa Twin in the CRF category for a reason. Like the popular dirt bikes that share its nomenclature, this bike was made to not only handle the tough stuff, but to excel in it. Protect your CRF1000L Africa Twin with a set of AltRider Crash Bars, and venture confidently into the unknown.
The Lower Crash Bars are the foundation of AltRider’s 3-part Crash Bar system for the Africa Twin. These bars are constructed in the United States from 1.25 in (3.175 cm) diameter steel tubing with 0.079 in (2.0 mm) wall thickness. Boasting more than twice the stiffness compared to 1 in (2.54 cm) tubing, no other crash bar design on the market offers such robust protection for the Africa Twin. This added strength enabled AltRider engineers to design the Lower Crash Bars to take the first hit in a tip-over or low-side crash before any of the bike’s vital components come in contact with the ground. The hand-TIG welded crash bars are CNC mandrel formed around the rear brake lever for excellent ergonomics while still providing powerful protection
The rear of the Lower Crash Bars mount in-board of the right foot peg by way of the 3/16 in (4.8 mm) mounting flanges, which will transfer impact energy away from the motor to the lower frame. Up front, 3/16 in (4.8 mm) thick stainless steel brackets fastens the bars directly to the frame.
AltRider’s Lower Crash Bars are available individually or as part of the Full Crash Bar System, and are offered in a bead-blasted stainless steel finish, or in black or red powder coated finishes. M8 and M10 mounting hardware is included. The Lower Crash Bars are compatible with the factory belly pan and OEM center stand, and can be installed on both DCT and manual transmission models.
