2019 OEM Light Bar
« on: June 22, 2019, 12:45:28 AM »
Just added the 2019 OEM Honda light bar.




it appears to be redesigned for 2019 (based on the older installation instructions I found). It is now a single piece bar warpping around the motorcycle and attached to the front of the frame via a heavy new mounting bracket that attaches behind the headlight housing.

It is a very heavy unit with quality metals, excellent welds and a well done paint job. and it fit right out of the box with a minimum of fuss and not a single need for bending or hammering.

I have heard people disparage the older unit as "cheap" or "frail"..... I have nothing to compare it to but I believe that this new "Light Bar" is a durable and resilient accessory that  would protect the plastics in anything but a serious crash.


I also think it looks cool!

Wondering if this is "backwards compatible" (with the aforementioned front frame bracket)? :001:

Ah well. My Barkbusters have done well at saving the upper half of the bike thus far on minor "unplanned dismounts".

Looks like they only come in Silver, i wish there was a black version. Paired with a RR belly pan this looks like it would keep everything well protected.

The new bar looks great.  Do you know the part number for the updated 2019 version?
