This is our crashbar for the sportster models. The 2004 to present models would be a direct bolt on. The 2003 and earlier version would require welding on the supplied bungs to the chassis for mounting. The front crash bar does what it sounds like it should, it protects the front section of the bike in case of a crash or if the bike happens to fall over. The assembly, in fact was designed and built for some local stunt riders to protect their bikes as they were learning new tricks and didn't want to destroy their new Sportys in the process. The bar features replaceable delrin sliders on the ends to help the bike slide over the pavement as opposed to taking hold of the bike while it is sliding and causing it to high-side. A lot of R&D has gone into the exact placement and length of the bar to ensure enough lean angle so not to impede other types of high speed cornering and still provide the right amount of protection.
* May require the use of an aftermarket exhaust
