Motobins/ Motorworks stock bars for the 8v, but not the 16v.

I wonder why? Thought it was the same dimensions 😕

I can't tell you why, but i'm sure they're different. The crash bars i have on my K1100 are sligthly different by the way they're fixed on the engine.

Perhaps they thought none of the 16 valvers would get dropped Very Happy

Bizarre

Cheers green cat.

I think it has to do with the underbelly pan fitted to the 16Valve would get in the way of the bottom mounting.

I figured the bellypan could be strategically drilled.

I have a copy of an early Ride magazine (UK Bike mag) that has a picture of an 8v with crash bars with a belly pan. It looked good.

If I can get hold of a scanner Ill put it on here, cos it was a whole buyers section on bricks and made for good reading. Very positive.
