    Unfortunately the whole review is in Russian without subtitles. At the 2:03 part, you can see the crashbars protectors. Anyone know where to get these for the gen 2?

    Saw someone in the comments asked in English also.

    @ 3:15 into the video she, the gorgeous Russian, was riding a gen1. Yea, Ill bet a good search will yield some gen2 body armor.

    I think she is talking of a previous vmax she reviewed and comparing them. I've been searching but can't find any crash bars at all for the Gen 2 only sliders.

    Well what I surely thought would be a quick search has yielded absolutely zilch on the crash bar's.
    Tuesday I will be at Vforce, a Yamaha dealer here in Denver where the service writer is a custom Vmax guru. I will ask him about the bars and post results ASAP!

    Ive seen those bars before on the old site a bunch of times. Or ones similar. Makes me think someone on the Starvmax board was making/selling them. no clue who now at this point.

    I had crash bars made very similar to this. I can probably get more made if people are interested. I can get more backrests made also but need 8 people ready to buy in if I get them made. They won't make less than 8 due to too much wasted material.

    How much would they cost? (Approximately, barring any defense industry-like price increases, of course.)

    I haven't called and priced the crash abrs yet but the backrests would be around 125 shipped again I just haven't talked to my powder coated yet to get it squared away.

    Seems like there would be a big demand,,maybe you should make a dozen sets and see how they sell??
