Pictures of bike with crash pads/bars

Hi

Do you have pictures of bikes with crash pads and crash bars?
I would love to see it how it looks - side view and front view.

I am especially interested in PUIG R12 crashpads and SW-Tech crash bar.
But it would be also cool so check how other models look like.

Thanks

Thank you Gtown. I totally missed it when I did search

Anyway, I am looking for some pics with Rs, in a linked thread there are just GSes. (I will try to edit my message)

SW-Motech crash bars installed. They look discreet and fine to me

Wow Fred Fleury! Your bike looks fantastic in «all black». Did you also paint cylinder block? How did you do that? Is there a thread about it in the forum?

Yes, crash bar is indeed discreet. I just ordered crash pads from SwMotech and I am really considering to change my order. Do you have some front pics?

Hi gustuff

I didn't plastidip the cylinder, just the plastics and covers. In fact most of it was done by gregtixa (also here in the forum) who has a higher plastidip stroking experience

The thread with before/after pics:
https://www.g310rforum.com/forum/177...blue-310r.html

I'll take a pic from the front and post here so you can see it.

Plastidip? Never heard of it!
Looks great, but how good it is? Does not look to me like it is a good coat for engine covers because of temperature

Hey gustuff

The only issue I've had since doing it months ago is some peeling off where my feet rest/rub. Then I retouch it once in a while, but that's a minor issue to me and I'm overall pretty happy with it black.

Of course if you can get all the parts properly removed and coated , but that's the difference between paying hundreds of dollars or $6 for a Plastidip can. I think it's a matter of figuring out what works best for you!

Attached a pic from the front

Thank you for pics - looks great!

$6 for how much?
In Norway it is like 36USD for 1L :/

I completely forgot that cylinder block is already black..
Regarding feet rest it might be better to wrap it with protective foil instead.
