Installed this today. The quality of the machined components is excellent...well made, great finish. I painted the spacers satin black because the raw metal finish didn't suit the rest of the bar. The bar itself needed to be trimmed about 1/2" on each end to fit neatly between the handlebar switch pods. It does look good after the effort.
Minus 1/2 point because I had to mess about with it to get it right. Minus another 1/2 point because it would only represent value if it fitted perfectly straight out of the box.
Order this to add a GoPro and phone caddy to my gadgets. The bar is really easy to install. I tried it in the lower position (don't buy the dual bar) and it will not allow the storage compartment to open, so it has to be mounted in the upper positions. So far doesn't look like it will interfere with any buttons. I temporarily mounted my Garmin and cup holder on it, but will be replacing the M8 bolts with a Ram ball to mount the Garmin.
Now the reason for the 3 stars.....PRICE, PRICE, PRICE, PRICE. A piece of pipe, two clamps, and some bolts do NOT cost $130. Would be a good deal at $75 still high but more inline with them making a profit and not ripping people off. Would be a great deal at $40 (what it should cost), and they would still make a profit.
This bar is really nice. It is well made, very sturdy and light.
Note: I have the non GPS, airbag 2012 model. With the bar mounted in the lower position, I am unable to remove the lid from the center storage compartment beneath the ignition key. I mounted mine in the uppper position. This puts my Zumo 665 high above the bars and in the perfect viewing position. Mounted in the center, the GPS does not block any of the gauges or center digital readout. I gave a low score because of price.
Being a gadget person...I added this bar to my Goldwing. I added my Butler 34oz Cup to this bar, as well as GPS, MP3 player, Cell Phone & video camera.
I find this bar to be helpful in keeping everything visual, as well as close-up control. Easy to install.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
