Mick might have some of those? Not the best fit for sure, but they'll protect the bike in case of a spill, Like Dave says, a Link would be nice, just to confirm  Ebay engine bars 3498837457

Yes Sim, you're right, those are the one's that I bought. Originally when I tried to fit them they would only fit if I completely removed the radiator cover, which was no use at all. Couldn't get the top holes to line up with the holes in the frame. Ebay engine bars 410694

The next day, I used some gentle persuasion with a 2lb lump hammer and about twenty minutes later I managed to get them lined up enough to fit Ebay engine bars 3298 , although I did end up creasing the tube slightly during my efforts.

I did think about sending them back originally Ebay engine bars 2795157665 but then I got my temper up and just belted them until they went on - I'm normally a placid type of bloke but that Sunday morning I just thought "fuck it " !

If you buy something cheap, you get something cheap, usually.

Thanks for editing the post Chris. Ebay engine bars 3498837457

As Mick has said, the only way of getting those to fit is by hitting them. That's a very poor part. Ebay engine bars 437349 Saying that though, if you can persuade them to fit it would be better than none on.

My bike would of been a total write off if it didn't have engine bars in addition to the other points it hit in my rta.

Yep, you're right mate .... I didn't expect them to be 1st class quality or to fit perfectly first time but I didn't expect it to be as difficult as it was to get them to fit - typical Chinese import stuff.
I bought from the second seller, but they were about £50 with free postage ..... Same horse, different colour Very Happy

Bit like my sissy bar.... Came from usa, but I thnk it's probably chinese.... Goes rusty if it gets wet, and no matter how many combinations of sitting the fender rails inside/outside the backrest/separate rack, none of the spacings were quite right. 

Sometimes when it's just 'a weekend toy' it's hard to justify paying top dollar for bits and pieces.

I always treat things with respect like that that are cheap, lots of wd lots of the time should help keep them OK. Good quality can be left alone a lot of the time, cheap shite needs to be loved up to keep it looking good
