Quick crash bar question

I would like to pick up a set of crash bars for my KLR but I'm not sure which ones will fit with my existing skid plate and case guard, here's a pic of my bike. Any idea which ones will fit? Thanks in advance.


Sorry, it's not much of a pic of the skid plate and engine guard, is it enough to tell what will fit?

Cheers,
Stew

Motechs should work..... Might be a tight fit on skid plate but you can always tweak that in a bit to accommadate the bottom bars...

Thank you, you don't think the case guard will get in the way? I would kind of like to keep it as it holds my highway pegs (that I rarely use...)

Cheers,
Stew

The SW Motech crash bars have Highway peg mount 10mm holes. I've spilled mine twice and they do a good job protecting the bike. My last wreck it went over the top and got the windshield, and fairing but I am a big fan of the SW Motech bars, skid plate, and center stand.

Motech bars look cool, too.

I love my Motech bars! They make it feel like the adventure bike it is.
