Default Police accessory bars

I'm looking for a set of black police bars. They attach to points on either side of the fairing and hold stuff like lights, siren, speakers, a radio, etc.

I just missed a set on one of the other forums.


Thanks

You can check with any of the companies that manufacture the parts and see if they will sell for civilian model ST's.
Don't be surprised if they won't.
State laws dictate what can and can not be sold to civilians in order to keep "fake" bikes to a minimum.
Most manufactures for the "kit" police bikes parts simply would rather not get into the problems and have adopted a blanket no sell to civilian owners.
Official police department letterhead is required for even price quotes.

You do realize these are not "crash bars" they are light/siren/baton/weapon holders/protectors.
In anything other that a simple no speed tip over the offer little if any protection, and damn little tip over protection in more than a few cases.

Buying the bars new/retail is not a problem. I just don't want to pay the price.

FWIW...I belong to a group named the Motorcycle Marshals. We provide first responder and safety support for large public events, such as the MS150. We run HAM radios, emergency vehicle safety lighting, and PA systems and are easily identified by the hi-vis vests and other markings. In the context of the events, we are a civilian extension of law enforcement.

I'm not looking for rollover protection; I'm looking for mount points for additional support gear - fire extinguisher, compressor, and so forth.

Interesting that you were so quick to take me to task for the query...

Sorry if it came off as Taken to Task. Not my intent.

I have years experience in servicing our police fleet here.
52 - KZ1000P's as well as Escort Fleet.
