Looking to put either Frame Sliders or Crash Bars on my 1200 ST. Crash bars seem heavy and not sure I like the look. Pros and Cons?
If we're thinking of the same incident, the guy ended up having to replace his VERY expensive radiator because the AltRider bars attach to the radiator mount points and apparently it tweaked the radiator badly enough that it couldn't be repaired. The question remained if that ended up costing him more or less than if he had no crash bars at all, but I think the consensus was the radiator cost more.....There was a photo posted a while back of a Multistrada that someone crashed with Alt Rider Crash Bars installed. It was hard to tell, but appeared the bars caused more damage and didn't look as if they held up. It was only a photo and impossible to know what actually happened.
I bought the DP crash bars and realized after dismantling the bike that the '10 bikes lack a tab required that the later bikes have.I am also looking into crash protection for my multi. Where is the lug on the frame for the dp crash bars? A pic would be nice too. I have a 2010 and am not too sure if they will fit my bike.

No. Where do you find those? I'm not sure I would want to remove it again if required to install the extender.Naw, The right thing to do would be to pas them on to me. Free of charge of course. LOL
Good choice for a alternate. Did the CF fender come with the extension on the back?
Pictures please and with your foot/feet up on the sliders? I am thinking the same way. ThanksI chose the altrider crashbars n crashbar slider from RevZilla. Easy instalation video on the site . I can prop my foot up on the sliders to cruise the highway. And the look is Boss...
