New Crash Bars on the bike

Picked up some DirtRacks bars. I just got the bare metal versions and rattle canned them. So far they are holding up good. I wanted some protection for the radiator more than anything.

Looks good! You thinking on getting protection for the rear master brake cylinder? I flinch when I see em uncovered. Cheap insurance.

I have that set, on the right side where it curves in to avoid leg contact, it will bend the first time you drop it with any force, mines been bent since day one. The left side wont bend because it makes contact with the engine. If I got another set I would think about trying to come up with a way of bracing it at that point.

Im Bring up a old thread looks like ,But these were the racks i was just about to order , Looking at their website it don't look like they changed this ,
has anything new came up with these bars sense you installed them
or a quick fix ?
I may have to reconsider ,
