Hey there. Just picked up a 2010 yamaha v star
650 Custom yesterday. Don't even have my license yet (Taking an MSF course next weekend), but it was too good a deal to pass up..
I was looking for crash bars/sliders of some sort to protect the bike, being that it is my first bike and s**t happens.
I Realize they make crash bars that mount behind the forks, but there are a billion options with vastly different prices... Any suggestions for a good, strong set of bars? Not looking to spend hundreds. Black or Chrome is fine, not picky. Not terribly worried about the chrome quality; it is going to be garage kept and odds are that unfortunately it WILL get scratched up at some point anyways.
I Saw a few on ebay for ~100$ which i can afford, but 200$+ is a bit much, i think.
Doesn't seem like they make anything else, but if they do please let me know. I Couldn't find anything.
Also contemplating doing some sort of led replacement or something for the tail & head lights. More importantly the tail lights, as it seems a bit dim to me. Is something out there that is going to be brighter? Turn signals are OK but led replacements for those would be cool too.
Thanks for the info fellas!
