SW MOTECH engine bars
« on: November 07, 2011, 10:53:23 PM »
I have just seen a set of engine protectors from SW MOTECH on Ebay from a company in Germany.
As well as protecting the engine and just as importantly the radiators these bars can be used for attaching extra lights

Sounds interesting Rocker - if you are able - can you post up a link to the site.

Thanks Rocker66 - looks like aftermarket is more active over in Germany than here.
I quite like the idea of spot lights as well - ones on the new Crosstourer look swish.

I'm not overly impressed with the CR's main beam although dip is just fine

Do you have headlight beam set correctly ?  mine was way too high.  set it against garage door and just need to try it again now
You could fit some osram night breaker plus bulbs... They are supposed to be fantastic

Yes I have had my setting checked. It is not really a problem with the brightness but with the actual beam shape

just coming back on this one - I find the lights poor but must admit I need to check settings. Don't tend to be out in the dark on the bike if I can avoid it though - specially on unlit roads. The old maxim of  "aim at the oncoming vehicle and then go just to the left of it" is too scary for me nowadays  :112:
