Need help

I just finished making a rear rack for my new Givi top case used small welder and powder coater I got from harbour freight. It turned out nice enough to give me the confidance to make engine crashbars. This is where i need the help does anyone have some good pictures of the SW motech crashbars mounted on their bike. I have looked on the net but can not find any good close ups of where they mount on the bike.



thanks

Very nice looking work on the rack!

Some people have complained about the bike having more vibration after the Motech bars are installed.

Folks seem to like the look of the Givi bars, but there seems to be a fitment issue for the 08-09 bikes. Also the California 10's.

I'd love to see what you come up with.

Is this really the case? My guage cluster starting buzzing the same day I put Motech crash bars on. The buzzing could be result of the excessive vibes, couldn't it?
