If you're the proud owner of a Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200Z you want crash bars to protect it. AltRiders Crash Bars are built from one inch stainless steel so they'll never rust, and feature beautiful hand TIG welds.
In designing these crash bars, AltRider went through the trouble of maintaining the hidden connector in the front to yield a seamless system. Why is that important? It means the energy of a hard impact on one side can be transferred throughout the bars and to the other side. The three mounts on one side don't have to take an entire impact load; instead, it is distributed across six mount mounts so none of them are overwhelmed. All of this is important because the crash bars will not only protect the fairing in the case of a crash, but also the Super Tenere’s exposed radiator.
AltRider also conducted a thorough study to identify the bike’s contact points when on its side. This led to a crash bar design that offers a wide contact area between the crash bars and the ground. The other contact points will be the handlebar bar ends, and rear passenger peg – protecting the fairing, engine, radiator, and brake and shifter lever.
Additionally, AltRider ensured the glove box side panel will have plenty of clearance to be easily removed while bars are still installed.
The crash bars allow full removal of the right-hand side panel. Because the left-hand side panel only requires periodic removal, the bars were not designed to allow removal of the panel. However, the left-hand side panel can be loosened enough to access to the hardware holding the gas tank in place – allowing the tank to be lifted up to gain access to the air box.
