Iím in the market for crash bars for my 2019 BMW G 310 GS. I often search out all of the options before making a better informed decision (it drives my wife crazy
). Thought Iíd share my findings in case it would help other riders. Also would like to know from others if Iíve missed anything and where if possibly I could purchase for cheaper Ė especially for those options that provide the lower engine protection and upper tank protection (my preference). Below is what I have gathered to date on the options. Iím also attempting to post corresponding pictures as well from each manufacturer. i.e. pic 1 Hepco and Becker, pic 2 Wunderlich, and so on so you can have a quick look for comparison. Iím also including best price options from sellers that I was able to find online Ė there are probably better options out there so please share if you know of any. I live in Canada so where possible I have priced in Canadian dollars and/or US dollars with the perspective of where best to buy if you live in Canada. These prices do not include applicable taxes, shipping and possible duties.

Couldnít find their website. Just a link to their FaceBook site. No idea on pricing. They have some really creative and good looking mods for the GS. Painted to match crash bars. Not sure if you can order from them. Check out some of their photos on their FB site.
And of course there are a million options on EBay and Amazon from China. Prices and pictures look good but not sure of the quality. Anyone have any experience purchasing crash bars this way?
