Grade 8 should be good.

The Bygdawg bars are 9.25 inches, from the frame to the tip.

Maybe it was the 1.25 that made them expensive because 1.50 is the common thread pitch once you get to 10mm.


As far as the stainless anti-seize tales care of galling.
My thinking on the strength was these are used for the gas station tip over, I had just had one when they first came out.
Crashing it at speed was going to put a serious hit on the bar and probably bend it into the bag but was it going to bend the rear frame tube as well.
As it turns out the ST slides fairly well supported by the front and rear set of bars.
We've had several reports of someone testing the bars at speed with no damage reports to the frame down tubes.
I like to think I learned how to stop tipping mine over, I have not done it in a while.

Paul,

You are absolutely correct about the 10 mm size. I guess I pulled the wrong cap screw out of the spares bin to measure and that 8 mm size is what I wrongly remembered. The 40 mm length is required because the 10 x 23 stock bolt is deeply recessed in the step while the new ones have to be longer to pull the GL bar down onto the aluminum step.

The nice thing is I haven't dropped my ST in a long time and not since I installed these. I think the thicker GL bar might be a little more easy to slide on the pavement in a slow speed get-off compared to the smaller diameter bars that might dig in a little more but I guess it really depends on the way the accident happens, the luck of the draw at the time.

Well . . . good luck ! Here is a good example with those Goldwind tip over bar from E-BAY . . .

You will see that You do not have to be very far from the US to see the price of shipping explode . . . I live at 2 KLM from the Vermont border and there is also a free trade agrement between Canada and US

One of the nearest town in Vermont from my place . . .
Richford VT ; 12.75 US$
To Canada ;44.00 US$
To Australia ; 64.90 US$

Yep, sure does. A little pain in the wallet is bearable but the postage unfortunately usually leaves a mortal wound!

Doing some digging in old thread .Talking of old . . . like many of us ,I'm not getting younger myself

One Year ago, I had to stop working because of a severe discal hernia that caused permanent damage to my LEFT sciatia nerve's leg . According to the result of an recent EMG , I have définitively lost 30% on the control of the muscles of the LEFT leg . Not working since and probably never will be able to go back neither because of limitations restrictions applied by my Specialist making me unsuitable to go back to my regular job . . . but life still go on

Last August , I could not stand not riding anymore because of the Doctor's order . The pain to look at my stored ST waiting for me was greater than the physical pain I have to endure constantly Reading motorcycle forums and the sight of motorcycles passing by or on the road while I was driving my Crossfire did not help neither.I had enough and then took the decision to not tell my Doctor and decided to take it out to see if it was still possible for me to ride again . . . what a pleasure that first ride was . I had to restrict myself in distance and duration . . . when the pleasure of riding was less then the pain, it was time to head home . Instead of my yearly average of aproximatly twenty thousand Kilometers I was able to do a five thousand Kilometers in this three months short season

Since the danger of dropping my beloved ST on the ground have greatly increased because of the reduced control on my LEFT leg , I am thinking to install the GW crash bar ( like the look of the result ) but I am wondering on their effectiveness so thanks for sharing Your experience . . .

Daniel

Paul is right about the thread pitch M10 standard pitch is 1.50 whereas most Japanese machines use a fine pitch thread at M10 X1.25. All other size bolts used on the Japanese bikes is standard metric pitch thread. You also need to make sure you obtain the correct tensile strength as has been pointed out previously and with that I mind be very cautious with your choice of Stainless Steel as a lot of readily available products are made from low grade cheaper material. The last thing you want is to have spent all that money and time protecting your pride and joy only to have the bolt snap at the crucial moment and the protection fail to do it's job.
Having said all this I'm now off to search for some GL1800 bars as the budget is a little overstretched at the moment.

I do not recommend stainless for use on the tip-over bars doesn't matter who makes them or what they come off of.
10 x any length x 1.25 in Stainless are hard to find and they are soft.
Once the bolts bend the bar is sure to follow.
I would be looking a Carbon as entry level tip over and 10.9 or 12.9 if you ever have the misfortune of sliding them down the street.
If you think 10 X 1.25 is expensive price out a saddle bag.
Spare no expense on fasteners and retain your OE status and serious bucks on painted plastic parts.

Stainless is pretty but so is high gloss black.
Rust-Oleum has a high gloss that color matches the black bars and might just highlight the chrome with style. Spray as directed and give it the full 24 hours to cure and it hold up to torque without chipping or cracking. Spray to the bottom of the shoulder and you won't have rust stains to deal with.
Anti-seize them they play in a high moister environment.

Paul

Got two GL1800 crash bars delivered to me here in Ireland from ebay America, total cost including postage and custom tax 133 USD. These crash bars are in as new condition and to me well worth the money I paid for them. Now I hope to get them on in the next few days. Jim.

Remember to remove and replace just one bolt at a time, from the old bracket, to the new tipover bar.
