SW Motech crash bars $187 at Twister Throttle??

I saw that twisted throttle has the sw motech crash bars for $187. It seems really low for the 08+ KLR650. Let me know what you think as I paid $239.99 through solo motorsports website. Is this a typo?? If not then ill gladly return the other ones.

Thanks,
Kakalaka

This is once you click on it and add it to your cart. However, they also charge $52 for hipping so it comes to be the same.

My SWMotechs were something like $256 from Rocky Mountain ATVMC delivered - ordered 'em on a Thursday afternoon and they were at the house on Monday.

Shipping is a dealbreaker for me. It's not necessarily TT's fault-

I've been going back and forth between the Motech and Givi bars. The shape of the Givi set lends itself to a small package, as a result shipping is cheap - even free from some shops.

The shape of the Motech bars just results in a huge box, the carriers charge more for packages with large dimensions.

At the end of the day, it means the Motechs cost almost $100 more out-of-pocket than the Givi bars. This at least brings their prices closer. That just makes my decision harder.

I see TT has a "free shipping on orders over $350" - that might help, if that's not the only thing you are buying.

Even with a shortened kickstand that I need, I'm not close to that, unfortunately.
