Connector Rods for Engine Bars (Honda Africa Twin)


A Black Dog Cycle Works (BDCW) exclusive design

The BDCW Connector Rods are an excellent addition to the BDCW Lower Engine Bars and the Hepco-Becker Tank Guards.


These beautifully machined parts will provide extra stability and strength to the Hepco-Becker Tank Guards (The BDCW do not need any additional support as they are connected directly to the frame of the bike).


Machined from Billet Aluminum—the Strength of these Connector Rods are Undeniable
Precision craftmenship and a superior design maximize the strength and beauty of these rods

The ULTIMATE for Ease of Installation
No disassembly of major components—10 minute install TOPS!

The ULTIMATE for Ease of Maintenance
Only one bolt on each end of the rod from the clamps—need to remove the lower bar—ONE bolt and you are done.

Hard Type 3 Anodized Black
To provide years of good looks and just enough detail to stand out from the powder coated crash bars.

Made in the U.S.A.
No bones about it, we manufacture all of our Black Dog products right here in the U.S.—supporting the local craftsmen, materials and machinery. We have world class manufacturers in our own back yard and we are committed to supporting our local economy which is extremely important to us. We feel supporting the U.S. manufacturing base has never been more important.
