Has anybody any experience of fitting crash bars to their Silverwing? I have found a German company that manuifactures them and a name of an importer, I have looked on their website which I found to be a little unclear as they make the bars for a Silverwing 400 as well, not heard of this one, whats the difference? Any help thanks.

Fehling.de may make some----but they are hardly "crash bars" maybe might help on static tip over, but probably do more harm to plastic in high speed get off than just sliding along.

For info--in Korea, because of hard use, crowded----you can get 360 degree bumper---OEM, really strong. Works well. OEM top box mounts to rear of bumper.

Here is a link to a place that sells fehling in the USA.
You'll probably find a source closer to home, but the pics are good.

Scroll down on that site.

Has anyone used the Fehlings crash bars and do they help?
My mechanic is thinking of installing bumper stoppers...not sure if that is what its called, often found on sport bikes. He said might look a bit wierd but could do the trick. He would make these when he replaces my panels. He did say however, for me to also look into the crash bars that Dan posted. Just wondering if anyone has used either bumper stoppers or the fehlings and what was the result with them?
Thanks,
...Christina

Unlike me, who simply let my mind forget gravity is more powerful than the side stand when parking sideways on a slope.

And what rhymes with slope - yup - Dope. (That's me!!!!) Laughing

My opinion of the Fehlings bars is this:
They look good.
They are not really robust enough to be called crash-bars; by that I mean if the bike falls on them, they will probably bend and press on the body-work, especially as the mounts are very widely spaced.
They will be damaged in that event, chome-plating included as it's not the best quality.

Having said all that, I'm again thinking seriously about getting the back-end bars because a) I like the look of it, b) it will hold my soft panniers away from the panels and c) it will prevent scuffs and scratches if I do brush against anything hard (gatepost, for example).

My slow speed handling problems have up to now occured at nought miles per hour. Tupperware has suffered (battle scars), most times the only one I can blame is myself and my own stupidity. On two occasions diesel has been the culprit.

Going to look at this one. Just need to work out how to weld the two scoots together. Should prevent the 'falling over' problem.
