Vulcan 500 engine guards

Where might be a good place to look for an engine guard for a 2009 Vulcan 500? And what should one expect to pay for one?

Thanks!

I hope you all haven't been waiting since 2015. I just signed up for their email watch-list so fingers crossed.

I'm looking for Chrome but I don't know that the 650 S guards are going to fit on my 500. Hence why I haven't ordered those from RevZilla.

The only ones I'm finding that are 500 specific are on E-Bay from a site in Italy. Link - https://www.ebay.com/itm/Crash-bar-S....c100667.m2042 And unfortunately neither the home site nor the E-Bay link specify what model years these will fit.

There is a member here who used Suzuki C50 guards on his 500. He had to buy a few fasteners to make it work, but his looked a lot better than the one from Tucmoto. And they are about a hundred bucks cheaper. I currently have the stock guard on my bike, which is too small to prevent damage to anything except maybe a random rock thrown at the radiator.

Go with the engine guards from Tucmoto -- use the link that Stardust provided (post #2).
KAWASAKI VULCAN 500 CL/LTD HIGHWAY BARS 1996-2009. On that website I clicked on the link to have them notify me when the bars were back in stock. They got them a few weeks after that and I ordered them. The bars arrived within a few weeks and I put them on myself. My review is shown on that website, I have copied it below.


Perfect fit/easy install May 19, 2018
Reviewer:Stephen Ortolano from Buffalo, NY United States
The bars fit perfect and were easy to install. No instructions so use the small picture that is on the parts list sheet as a guide. Top attaches to existing bolts near horn and ignition switch. Bottom attaches to frame with 2 U-bolts. Only negative is the bars are only 25" wide.
