Crash bars

Hey everyone. Looking for crash bars for my 2013 650 in Oz. Can only find them to fit 2015 onwards. Does anyone know if they will fit my 2013 ?
Cheers
Tully

These guys have a selection and they ship international....Crashbars for Kawasaki KLE650 Versys | Accessories International


I loved the Hepco/Beckers i had on my 09. They saved my leg from a direct hit when a car slammed into me. Still wound up with a fractured femur and fibula. Without the crash bars i probably would have lost my lower leg...

To the best of my knowledge, bars for Gen1 (2007-2009) will fit Gen2 (2011-2014) but the Gen3 (2015+) bars will NOT work with Gen2. I have a 2012 so I'm in the same boat.

You could also try AS3 Performance and T-Rex racing... they have bars for the 2014. eBay may be an option as well.

I have had some luck with looking on Facebook marketplace, seeing a bike with an accessory I'm looking for, then making an offer for the accessory. The seller can generally keep the bike's asking price where it is with or without accessories, so it can be a win-win.

Here to learn.

On the Hepco/Becker Bars one from a Gen 1 will fit a Gen 2 if you replace one M6 Bolt and one Sandwich Spacer...See photo below...

Do you think the 2015 and upward crash bars will fit my 2013 650 with some minor mods ?

Side note, I find it weird that Givi only sells one bar for one side
