AltRider Upper Crash Bars for the Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin (without installation bracket)
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 inch (25.4 mm) 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 inch (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 inch (31.75 mm) 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.
Select a configuration at the right for additional information on individual components.
Configuration notes: save when you buy the Upper & Lower Bars Combo, and save even more when you buy the Full System (compared to purchasing each piece separately). If you are ordering only the Upper or Lower and it’s your first piece, you’ll need to order with the installation bracket. If you already have the Upper or Lower and are ordering the other piece, you can order without the bracket.
