AltRider Crash Bars for the Suzuki V-Strom DL 650

These premium crash bars, drawn from 1 inch stainless steel tubing, protect your engine casing and plastics from the wrath of the pavement. The AltRider crash bars for the V-Strom DL650 are designed for the impact load to be transferred to the frame, not the hardware (watch the video to see how this works). The crash bars are available in shot peen satin or powdercoat black finish. Unlike steel powder coated products, our stainless crash bars are extremely resistant to rust, even if they're scratched. Installation is easy since the bars bolt on quickly using existing mounts. These crash bars match seamlessly with our aluminum skid plate for the ultimate protection combination.

  • Bolts directly to the frame with no modifications needed
  • Seamlessly integrates with AltRider Skid Plate for the V-Strom
  • Quality 1" stainless construction resists rust and corrosion
  • Precision fit with 5 axis laser coping
  • Hand TIG welded for extra strength
  • Available in shot peen satin or powdercoat black
  • Stainless steel hardware included for installation
  • Replacement hardware kits available
  • Height: 15 inches (38.1 cm)
  • Width: 16 inches (40.6 cm)
  • Depth: 9 inches (22.9 cm)
  • Weight: 10 lbs (4.5 kg)

    Tested: Work great!

    I had a bit of a spill going through the Grand Tetons a couple weeks ago, so I had a chance to see what these are made of. Since they're un-coated stainless, there's no paint to scratch, and you can barely tell I went down. These don't come up as high as some of the competitor's crash bars, but they don't need to. The only thing that touched ground was the bar end and crash bar. Plastics were left untouched.

    Alan G we improved access for Skidplate install

    Alan, we say your feedback and have now dramatically increase the access to the fasteners, making the install much easier. The Fasteners must enter the bottom based on the design.

    These bars are made SOLID, super-strong...

    I was a little apprehensive spending $290 on Crash Bars for my V-Strom, but when they arrived I knew I made right choice. These bars are made SOLID, super-strong welds and black powder coated... absolutely no flaws! The installation was easily done in less than 45 minutes, and I purchased the $150 Frame Slider Kit also. The illustrated instruction were detailed and easy to follow. Both fit together perfectly and look great on my DL650.

    These Crash Bars are Super!

    are super bars. I would have rated these bars as 5 stars except for one reason: The four M8x20 flathead hex bolts used to solidly join the left and right sides through the cross bar at the front. They are inserted from the bottom of the bars. Yes, it is nice to hide them underneath but these bars were designed to mate with the front of the skid plate. Only a sadistic engineer would want us to i) screw these bolts upward inside the front of the mated skid plate where only a small child's hand would fit, and 2) require a 5mm allen tool to accomplish this arduous and knuckle- scraping ordeal. This last step took me 2 hours to accomplish and I still don't know if I was able to get them tight enough. Come on! There is nothing wrong with having the bolts screw down from the top of the crash crossbar. So what if the recessed bolt heads are visible? Only the strength of the cross bar mounts is important. But, strong they are. These are high quality bars which fit my V-Strom perfectly. But, they are also the most expensive bars available. Except for this one design flaw I would would rate them the highest of the bunch. Oh yeah. Nowhere in the instructions for the crash bars (or the skid plate for that matter) mentions that the two bolts already mounted in the right side bars need to be removed before attaching to the skid plate. If you mounted the skid plate first, like I did, you will have to uninstall it in order to get at these bolts to remove them.

    THE PERFECT CRASH BAR!

    I bought a set of crash bars the other day, and what I recieved was so much more than what I had expected. The craftsmanship was superb, installation was a snap (20min) thanks to great directions (with bolt sizes, and torgue spects). Bottom line these crash bars are built to last.
