Ibex Crash Protector Bar

Post by Aussie Dave » Fri Jul 13, 2018 3:38 am

G'day all,

Has anyone fitted a set of Ibex crash bars to their GT yet?

They look great in pics but I'd love to see a front on shot to check how wiiide they look on the bike. At last I found they are made of steel and come in orange/black/silver...... 8-)

The SW Motech bars are probably the most secure but are fairly big..... can't find enough photo's of the Ibex style to 'see' if they are up to the task of protecting the tank without making the GT look like a tank :lol: .

Cheers all. :)

Me again..... :lol:

Agonised over the colour....... silver matches lower cowl......but orange looks nice (not too much 'orange').. black would be nice too (not so in-your-face)........ arghhhh....... Motea had only orange & silver in stock at a discounted price from Ibex's $199Eu - $150Eu so all resistance crumbled and I pulled the trigger on a set of orange bars.

I eventually found the assembly instructions on the Ibex site - it had a nice 'exploded' diagram and some better pics which answered my concerns... ;)

So, while I rattle around home recovering, I will have something to do to my GT when the package arrives from Motea... 8-) .

Cheers from Aus...... struth..... 6 DegC this morning...... that's cold here in Brisbane Aus :lol:

Motea don't muck about........ it's on it's way :) ...... prob get it early next week...... that'll give me something to play motorbikes with :lol:

They also sell Con-stand centre lift stands....... I wish I had known this before I bought the La-Corsa's :roll: ....... anyway, I think I can find a way to make the rear stand easier to lift (I'll try standing on it instead of pushing down with R-arm :lol: ) - if that doesn't work...... Motea might have another order coming... :)
