Crash Bars and Hand Guards Aliexpress? | CB500x 2016
« on: October 09, 2019, 11:33:08 AM »
Hi there!

I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with the crashbars or the Hand Guards sold on Aliexpress?
They seem like a good deal for someone who has a tight budget but want some safety..
Better those than nothing I think.

Link Crash bars: https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/Dp4XNZyk 124,56 for top bar and bottom.
Link Hand Guards: https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/o5nPFUOG 22,47

Looking forward to your posts! If you found any other good looking cheap solution, feel free to post too.

Kind Regards,
Wessel

can't help with the crashbars
I have these hand guards and put them on in Jan and off in March. They help with the cool air and bugs.
Don't use them in the summer because it's better to have the wind when it's 90 degrees out.
Easy install

I bought those crash bars a while ago. Went to fit them yesterday. THEY WILL NOT FIT ( the top section anyway). The rear brackets are competely the wrong angle. I will have to cut the brackets off and re weld them. They also do not give new bolts so the stock bolts will get less purchane by the thickness of the bracket. Tubing is extremely thin and has little strength and the welding is quite poor.  Bit of a rip off.

I haven't tried to fit the lower bars yet.

I do have the same hand guards on my bike. They are made cheap and you get what you pay for. That being said they keep the cold air off your hands. At that price order two pair in case you scratch or break one.
As for the engine guards think about a better quality product such as SW Motech or others.
Cheers, North Season...

Had to completely reconstruct one end of each of the Lower bars AND now the upper bars. AVOID the Chinese ones. They do not fit as supplied.

I think you need to decide what you want these handguards for. 

If you want them to help keep the cold and rain off then great.

If you want them as actual hand guards, to protect your hands and to help prevent breaking a Clutch or Brake Lever in a drop then these are not much good.   If you do want the protection then go with the Barkbusters.
