    3mm - Jeez - STIFF!. If the tabs are too tough they'll snap bolts out in a thump.

    They will do the job they are made for (if your bike falls over) ..... but having a crash at speed then something has gotta give ..... if you have weedy bars they will crush and not save anything .... these are my prototype bars ... they are 50mm x 3mm wall ....the bottom fixing is bolted to a 5mm plate (might reduce to 3 or 4mm if I decide to produce them) top fixing mounts with the long frame bolt (behind the rad) can also make this from 3 or 4mm so it a bit of “give” in it

    Nice looking beefy bars, is the weak point the engine casing or the tabs on the beefy bars ?????/ hopefully the tabs.

    These 3mm bars are just my prototype ones but If I decide to go ahead with manufacturering them then I will do them in 14g which is about 2mm .... I see a lot of 1.6mm ones for sale ..... I will do the mounting plates in 3mm so it has a little bit of “give” ...... anything thinner will not be worth having

    I am not a engineer or metal fabricator, But why do you have to have round crash bars, Would it not be easier and have something no one else would have, I think if they were say made out 2 inch X 1/4 inch flat stainless steel, it would make mounting, lights or what ever easier, just by drilling a couple holes. And production would be easier, just stainless flat stock, and the correct bends and brackets. Anyway just a idea, and it may be a dumb one but I had to ask. Thanks:confused::unsure::unsure:
