    Hey... I was interested in getting a set of these and was wondering how they worked out. How was cornering ....
    do they seem like they are worth it?

    The box came in good shape with lots of packaging. The bars seem very sturdy. I pressed and pulled on them and they definitely feel like steel. Couple of blemishes on them a small scratch after paint on one and a small ding before paint on the other. One spot where the paint looks like it smudged. The welds arent very pretty but seem to have plenty of material. None of the cosmetic "defects" bother me too much since I plan on applying plastidip in an accent color if they fit and there is enough clearance from hot parts of the bike. There is a very quiet rattle to them like some metal shaving the size of a salt grain has been trapped inside of each of them when the brackets were welded on. But once installed you would never be able to hear.

    Ive had these for over a year and half and there are no cornering issues or any issues really other than that the paint is starting to dull a little bit so I may have to take them off and plasti dip them

    So I never really tried them. I plastidipped them red and I didn't like how they looked on the bike and I ended up getting R&G covers as a gift and liked them more.

    I just bought a set of these bars, from Motea in Germany.  Good price and very quick delivery to UK, but they came without any fitting instructions.  Did any of you guys who bought them get instructions, and if so would it be possible to share them?
    Thanks - Bob

    Hahaha...
    As a Chinese Z rider, I think foreign accessories are safer for me.
    Something like EP or R&G, we believe those makers have tested their products well.
    The crash bars you've mentioned is about 70USD on Chinese shopping website,
    I'm not sure if it has been tested. Chinese maker always not a fan of testing.
    Be careful with the bolts ...
    +1 on the bolts. 👍
    I think China has its own thread pattern. I've found that supplied bolts that come with a Chinese made product never seem to fit anything else be it metric, imperial or even the product itself. And they seem to be made out of butter.
