Got this delivered today. MC Enterprises 1000-305 crash bar for Yamaha Bolt. Fits like it’s supposed to, and went in pretty easy. Probably the easiest crash bar I’ve ever put in. Took the opportunity to reposition my horn a bit too. Not bad for $130.


was the installation that easy?
just plug and play?

any tricks?

because I was highly considering that crash bar ... want to mount some lights on it....

Installation was really easy. No pictures but it only took me about half an hour. Nothing special or tricky about it. I chose this on not just because of price, but it didn’t require removing the foot controls at all like some of them do. This one mounts at the front basically.

One thing I was worried about with this bar and scraping the ground....in particular the bottom of this bar goes straight out rather than out and up like most. With my bike lowered, it actually presents a longer and lower point than my pegs. I have a roundabout I need to go through....hate ‘em in general....but I was able to get around it fine. It was pretty **** close though!! Lol.

In the picture it looks like the bottom mounts are different. It could be I'm not seeing it correctly but one side looks like it's on the inside of the down tube and the other on the outside ?

That’s actually correct. The right hand side is in the inside and the left hand side is on the outside. They are shaped accordingly to keep it centered

Oh my! Lower and wider. Maybe a sidecar for your next mod?

Any idea if the skid plate could still be installed along with the crash bars?
It won't work with this one because of how it mounts. The MC enterprises one I got mounts using the front motor mount areas and the skid plate would get completely in the way of mounting the right side of the bar.

I think it might possibly work with some other crash bars??? I don't now for sure. Some of the other ones I've seen mount on the frame with the footpegs I think....those might work? can't confirm though.

Just some matte black vinyl. I'm actually going to redo it because I'm not happy with how it turned out. It looks good from a few feet away and further, but I know where I screwed it up. I have some other decals I'm going to apply over the black matte....I may end up covering the entire tank and the fenders...haven't completely decided yet.
