Crash Bar Installation

I bought the crash bar made by Kawasaki (Part number K32000-028B) off eBay from sick_moto. Fast, well packaged and cheaper the most.

Some tips to anyone considering getting/ installing one.

- Just over 1 hour to install
- A 13mm ratcheting box end wrench will make your life easy.
- The replacement bolts on foot pegs are not chrome. I think they look like poo-poo.
- Allen head screws are not metric unless they are a half size or something.

Over all I'm satisfied. Easy, sturdy install. Looks good. Just wish the bolts were chrome.

It's possible that the OEM chrome bolts will still work but they maybe too short with the addition of the bar brackets.
