We really like this design as it is one on the ONLY ones on the market that attached directly to the frame of the bike, without the use of additional brackets that, in our opinion, create weak points.
For maximum protection, add these to the BDCW Lower Engine Bars and BDCW Connector Rods, which reinforce the stability and strength of the Hepco Becker upper tank bars.
Hepco-Becker Tank Guards provide protection in case of an accident or fall. Custom designed for each bike to bolt on without drilling. All tank guards come with the required installation hardware and instructions.
BDCW's Kurt Forget discusses his crash in Baja—how the bike's armor held up, and how the Klim Badlands suit and Krios helmet performed their jobs perfectly.
“I did a 30-mph tank slapper on my Africa Twin with your full setup including the Hepco-Becker upper bars. Upper bars bent back to hit plastic along the bar’s top tube, but just cosmetic damage to the bike itself. Engine bars did not budge. Thanks. Now, do you have any recommendations on the proper way to bend the upper bar back into position that I need to consider?”—William Chambers
