Installed a new set of Touratech crash bars last year. Recently went down at 5+ mph when front tire hit sand on very gnarly gravel/paved road. The bottom left side of the crashbar is pushed up against the 2nd spark plug and the whole left side is torqued back a bit. Really surprised that they bent so much. Was wondering if anyone has done anything to repair bars by straightening (is that possible?) or just replaced them or feel that hey, no problem - leave em alone. They seem real close to the left cylinder head now and I am worried that in a future spill that they will contact the cylinder head dramatically. Are these only so so bars and are there better ones? Thx for any input!
