HEPCO and BECKER Crash Bars are in the US

Just thought I would mention that Eurotechsports just recieved a shipment of 25 sets of Hepco Becker crash bars . They sent the largest part of them to A Moto Stuff and are drop shipping bars that were ordered through Happy Trails .
Mine are enroute to the house via UPS as I type . If you want a set of these bars , you better move fast . To my understanding , the last shipment the US got went within a week . I have been waiting for mine for 5 weeks now , but they will be here Thursday . Yipper DEE !!!!!!!!!!!!

A Moto confirmed my order at last week of Aug.

Hopefully it will be shipped to me by next weekend to Hong Kong ^^

btw, Sadly... I dropped my V last week with scratches on right cowling and radiator cover, bent brake levers, broken footrest, scratches on passenger footrest... ouch!

luckily, didn't drop myself and get myself hurt... this experience (1st drop ever over 20000km / 3bikes) worth every penny. will be more careful next time.

lokto7 ,

MAN , I hate to hear you dropped her . That alway ssucks . I did not realize that you are in Hong Kong . That's a little far from North Carolina USA or I would just swing by and ride a bit . LOL
Are you an American in Hong Kong ? If I may ask . You need to post some photos of you and your V in Hong Kong . We all love photos like that .
Also , it looks to me like you could get stuff easier than ordering from the US only have it shipped from Germany to here , then Hong Kong . Ouch , that must be some seriously painful shipping costs .

FYI, as PO-SLOKE mentioned, I got a tracking number from amotostuff.com today. That's the good news. The bad news is that it's going to take seven (7) !$#@*^% days for the shipment to get to me. I suspected it would because the last order that I got from them went from Nevada to California and then started it's journey east to NC. I don't pretend to understand the logic that UPS applied to that, but I guess there's a hub that it's got to go through. I'm about as impatient as they come, though, so waiting a whole week while my bars plod their way across the country is going to be tortuous.

I'm a native Hongkong-nese (lack of nationalism =.=). Shame that I dun update my Versys gallery often... http://chup.info/gallery2/v/d-/versys/

yep... in Hong Kong, buying parts not for Honda bikes is... not enjoyable. Not many choices... We have to rely on online shops often. Buying from Europe often incurs more expensive delivery charges as well as products.

Do not tarry . If you remotely think you want a set , I would step up to the plate and get that creidt card to smoking . They go VERY fast and the wait for more is insane .

Thumbs up That is far more beautiful that a bar protection

I think this is a good compromise between security and look

quantique318 ,

Yep , those look good for sure . But some of us such as myself and others , we come from an offroad background and think largely on radiator protection . That is pretty much what we are after and the fact that a simple highway peg can be mounted as an option . Also , the bar setup is a great place for running lights .
I like your setup though . But not for my intended useage .

light ..... What tyre is mounted? For the road I have mounted Pilot Power 2CT from Michelin is very well to hold the road in the rain and wear is very low. Very disappointed with the Dunlop wear it very quickly.

sorry for my English

If you hold off on the purchase of your H&B bars, you might save a bit of cash.

The GBP to US$ has dropped about 12-14% in last 4 weeks from US$2.00 to 1 GBP to todays US$1.75 to 1 GBP.

Having said that, I have the H&B bars and they saved my bike from many hundereds of US$'s when I dropped it back in May, so waiting could be a false economy!!

I am still running the stock Dunlop and have about 2400 miles on them . Believe it or not , they show almost no wear at all . BUT ......... I am a very mid rider . Easy on the throttle and not terribly hard cornering at all .
Although the Dunlops seem to be really sticky on the road . A good thing for me too !

By the way , fear not for your english , it is far better than my , " whetever " language would be your native language . LOL

I see the instructions are in German only. Has that caused any problems, or is it pretty straight how to install them? Thanks.
