Ease of install: 4
Would buy again: yes
Solid and large tubular steel with a very fine chrome finish (new at least). Installation was easy but recommend two people to line the bolts and get them threaded. Once installed unit is very sturdy. Now to answer the burning question - although it is designed with a very high angle coming off the floorboard mount bolt, the bars will become the lowest point on the bike. My riding style puts a lot of lean into turns, hard habit to break from sport bike origins, and in less than two hours after mounting the bars they had already been "sparked" on the right side. Since I consider these things sacrificial anyway in the case of the bike being knocked over or involved in a slow speed layover, this does not really bother me. The bars are quite sturdy and will support the weight of the bike easily without crumpling. The wear is on the very bottom of the bars and not visible unless on the ground.
