Mate, its an easy job if you are competent with tools and have all the right gear. I takes about 45 minutes, but is a little fiddly. If you are comfy with the spanners get the dealer to do it.

I slide down the road in a small village in Northern Pakistan going downhill and at about 45klm/hr. All I has was a small rash on the Heed bars and that was it. Easily touched up if you are that way inclined. They are also great for strapping on tyres and extra gear if you are doing serious overland work.

M8 they are well worth it to fit, just set everything out and look where it all goes, a helping hand is always welcome.

Tighten up to hold one side while you do the other, then go around touqueing up.

i fitted a set tonight, took about 2 hrs but part of that was the spacer fell out on the right side, luckily my 10 year old could reach in and get it, instructions are adequate but not great, tape measure to hand making sure i had the correct size bolts and washers.

I was inclined to have my dealer install them when I go in for the first maintenance on 16K Km.
But I figured, there's so much info on here, it's a shame I wouldn't put it to use...

So ordered a T55 torx and a torque wrench and will put myself to it somewhere next week I guess   :016:

Will update when at work (or in need of assistance   :157: :008:

Cheers!

pros and cons or upper bars, protect the bike, look good.

Cons, make it difficult to clean side panels and down pipes.
