The bars look good. Thanks for posting them.
I like your thoughts on the Torx head screws for that totally authentic look. I went with CraftRide 38 mm bars. Happy with the look and quality.So I recently received these bars from Hornig. Maybe I'm being too picky but the attached two pictures were areas on the bars where they hang as part of the powder coating process which I thought the manufacturer should have address before shipping. The bars themselves seem to be of good quality. I'm getting some touchup paint to cover up those areas but realistically you probably wouldn't see these areas when the bars are mounted. The bars are branded Craftride, the same as the ones on Motea https://www.motea.com/en/engine-gua...-crash-bar-38mm-craftride-mv5-black-a130021-0 . Hornig did a great job shipping them out right away from Germany to my location in the US and I received them in about 5 days including the weekend.
The hardware that comes with these bars have hex heads. I wanted Torx heads to match the rest of the bike so I ordered the some of the screws that come with the OEM engine bars that you can see here under Accessories https://shop.maxbmw.com/fiche/DiagramsMain.aspx?vid=61577&rnd=09082020 . The Hornig/Craftride bars use the screws M10x25, 10.9 on the lower sections near the bottom of the frame and the BMW ones are M30x30 10.9. Because these bars are thicker than the OEM ones the other two screws mounted near the top are larger too, M10x40 10.9 and M10x55 10.9 but the dealer wasn't able to locate any. If anyone know of someone who sells M10x40 10.9 and M10x55 10.9 screws with Torx heads please let me know.
BTW. If anyone is looking for touchup paint for our bikes in Black Storm Metallic no dealers I tried could get it. The one place I found to order it is here www.touchupdirect.com . It's not cheap and hopefully worth it.
Thanks. I was having trouble locating a BMW M10X40 10.9 Torx and I found one, https://parts.maxbmw.com/p/BMW__/Fillister-head-screw/78914842/46539909561.html , and ordered it today. I couldn't locate a Torx head substitute for the main M10X55 bolt that holds the two halves of the bars together so I'm leaving that as is. I played around with getting a bolt with a dark finish for it to blend in but it was getting to be silly money so I'll live with it. I should get all of the pieces sometime next week.I like your thoughts on the Torx head screws for that totally authentic look. I went with CraftRide 38 mm bars. Happy with the look and quality.
