Crash bars for Vulcan S

I have been searching online for Vulcan S crash bars... The ones I found are 1" to 1.25" diameter, or 25 mm. I could not find info on the thickness of the metal online, except for the Puig (.083"). Prices go from $135 up to $330.

Motorgenic: $165

R&G: $330

Waase: $156

Ebay (Chinese?): $135

Puig: $222

Have any of you fitted any of these bars?

I have the Chinese one installed, they fit fine and seem sterdy enough.

I bought the Puig ones from Revzilla (based on suggestions from other riders here on the forums) and they fit well.

Puig very happy with them.

That which does not kill me tends to really piss me off.

I got the Puig crash bars, but I wasn't told that I would have to change the extended peg position to the normal position. If I had known I wouldn't have done it. But it ended up feeling comfortable and is why I left it as it is right now.

Please know that the only crash bars that will work with the Vulcan S in the extended reach foot peg position are R&G. The others aren't compatible.

Almost learned this the hard way.

BTW, I have R&G on mine and love them. Great quality, fit and finish, install easy, work well and look great. Also have the matching highways pegs.
