Please note: You will also need to purchase the Africa Twin Crash Bar Installation Brackets if this is your first part of the crashbar set. One installation bracket mounts both the lower and lower crash bars. If you purchased the installation bracket with the lower crash bars you will not need to buy it now.
Part of AltRider’s 3-part Crash Bar System for Africa Twins, the Upper Crash Bars provide complete coverage for the bike’s vulnerable radiator and expensive plastic fairings. The 1 in (2.54 cm) diameter stainless steel tubing is hand-TIG welded in the USA and mounts directly to frame rather than the engine case.
The Lower and Upper Crash Bars meet at 3/16 in (4.8 mm) thick stainless steel mounting brackets, which tie to the front sub-frame and headstock using included M6 bolts, a dramatic advantage over all other designs on the market. This ensures a solid connection to the motorcycle’s frame, especially when installed in conjunction with the Reinforcement Crash Bars. Once the upper system is tied to the stout lower 1.25 in (3.175 cm) bars the system becomes clearly the strongest solution option. PEM captive nuts make for easy removal for servicing.
The AltRider Upper Crash Bars are offered individually or as part of the Full Crash Bar System, and are available in a bead-blasted matte finish, a black powder coated finish, or a red powder coated finish. The Upper Crash Bars can be installed on both DCT and manual transmission models, and are compatible with the OEM center stand and factory skid plate. Stainless steel mounting hardware is included.
