Will crash bars fit my bike?

1 of 1

Q. I recently bought a black '59 plate Honda XL1000VA Varadero, and regrettably dropped it yesterday whilst parking it, causing about £150 worth of damage, I have decided to have crash bars fitted. 

 noticed some on eBay to fit a 2008 model. Would they fit my 2009 bike?

A. Givi produce crash bars for the Varadero, and both the ’07 and ’08 bars will fit your bike.

They come in black so they’ll compliment the look of your bike. They cost £123 including delivery, but you already know how much money they can save.

hey are reasonably easy to fit but you do have to have some savvy.
