    SW Motech engine guards

    Assuming the standard "If it cost more it must be better". I am looking at the Motech engine guards to purchase. They cost more than the Givi set. Anyone have these and can comment on the quality of them? I'll spend the extra dough if they are better than the competitor. I've had givi stuff on other bikes, the paint is as cheap as it gets and durability seems like not enough.

    I have the SWM, very happy with them. Haven't had both so can't really compare. Haven't laid it down or otherwise 'tested' the bars. Hopefully it will stay that way!! My bike is kept outside rain or shine (with cover) except for the winter. No signs of wear. If I remember correctly there is at least one thread doing a comparison of the various bars and it talked specifically about these two models. Differences were minor and mostly cosmetic.

    FWIW, I just finished installing the GIVI guards on mine - more as a place to mount some decent highway pegs than anything else - and can report that mine were just flawless in the fit and finish department. As to which ones might do the best job in a tip over, thatís always debatable and wasnít my main concern.


    Iím supposed to respect my elders, but itís getting harder and harder for me to find one now ..
