    Has anybody installed the R-Gaza Crash Bars Engine Guards?

    I found a new type of crash bar that looks interesting to me. Has anyone tried these?
    I was wondering about the build quality, wind noise, and weather highway pegs could mount to them. I might put these on my Christmas list.
    I found them on Amazon. They are also on Ebay.

    I looked at those too. I'm not really thrilled with the way they use a simple hardware store U-bolt to attach them to the bike and the fact that they are welded to flat steel. Just didn't really look like quality construction/engineering when I was comparing these with others. In the end I've not purchased any yet, but I did cross these off my list of consideration. YMMV

    I just had the Givi crash bars installed on mine. I had the Denali Led lights attached to them, as well as a set of freeway pegs I got from Dennis Kirk. I think they're really for Harleys but they're all black so they're not extremely noticeable and were super easy to install with the Rivco 1" bar mount. The Givi crash bars seem to go lower on the engine so it makes for a pretty comfortable location to mount them to. The ones you're mentioning seem to be a little higher, I wanted to stick my legs forward but not really up. You might prefer them higher but it's something to consider.

    Hey guys, I am not sure if you are still interested but I did buy them and installed them. If you are worried about the U bolts, have no fear. Those things actually started to bend the metal that they attach too, they are heavy duty. I like how far they spread out from the bike. If I ever drop my bike I know I wont have a scratch on my plastic. The only points of contact that will be made are the tires and the engine guards.

    I do like the look of those. I like the horizontal bar that comes back. I might have considered these over the Mutazu had I seen them first. I do still like the Mutazu, though.

    I am thinking about getting these for my 2015. Any installation issues to note? Also, how do you like them after a few weeks of riding around with them?

    No issues at all, just a common sense note to put a lift or something under the engine so it doesn't move in the installation process since you remove the bolts holding in the engine.
    I wouldn't call this an issue but the right side U-bolt was a little bit harder to install cause a heat protected wire that runs right along there, just make sure when tightening down that the U-bolt is perpendicular to the engine guard (pointing straight out)
    Another thing to be aware of is the reserve that attaches to the bottom engine bolt on the right side, it is a little tight when reinstalling, but once everything is getting tightened down it syncs into place.

    I honestly dont even notice they are there. I noted down below about some little bugs in installing but nothing is flawed with the product. (took a little long getting here, it was sent from russia). When riding on the highway I put my feet up on the guards and its kinda comfy actually, just mind the hot engine right by. I might eventually add highway pegs on the engine guards.
