15' Horn relocation/Givi tire hugger/SW-Motech Crash bar farkle

Easy to add. They took roughly a half-hour to do both.

Givi seems quality and thick. I liked that it went on seamlessly with stock chain guard.

Crash bars look nice. Not a huge amount of coverage but I knew that going in but feel it will do what I need it to do unless I really am stupid off road and bash the engine on a rock or such.

I moved the odd placement of the stock horn and just pivoted it on its original bracket up to move it out form hanging down to much. I think it looks much better and very easy conversion.

Overall happy with the purchase. Revzilla got them to me a great time. Photos are not awesome, I am a better rider.

I have a question, the Givi hugger, is the chain guard easily removed or is that the OEM chain guard, also where did you buy it and how much. I f you could , can you post a reply in "Are Givi Huggers" thread--and thanks in advance.

Thanks for the pics and reviews. I've been debating which crash bars and tire hugger to install.

The engine guard looks like it would protect the engine on pavement or a graded dirt road. How uneven of a surface do you think it would take to threaten the lower parts of the engine in a low speed crash/drop? Or in other words, would there be sufficient protection for all but off-road use?

Do you know where the Givi hugger was manufactured? USA?

The first thing I did to my V, was to turn the horn. I think it looks much better than the original location.

The FIRST thing I did to my '15 V, was to change the horn to a WOLO BAD BOY, and mount it under the left fairing....
