Well, I had one tumble at about 3 MPH while doing parking lot cornering drills, with these BAIONE Wunderlich clone bars mounted. The front bars held up fine. The rear, right side bar bent backwards. Since I was doing the low speed stuff, I came without my side cases. If the side cases had been on, there's no doubt the rear right bar would have impacted the case. What kind of damage it would of done, who knows? It was easily bent back, as the problem was in the mounting plate. Again, as far as I have been able to ascertain, these are identical clones to the Wunderlich design, if not the fabrication. I don't believe the materials failed, though the Heed bars are clearly more robust (i.e. based on the side by side review I posted earlier review I posted earlier, in response to an earlier inquiry by Mick-F). I posted links to my review there as well, Heed versus Wunderlich (i.e. the BAIONE clone set of bars).They look cheap, not shure how much they would protect. Then again, it al depends!
I have a set of Heed that am happy with.
HEED Poland. Crash bars for BMW R 1200 RT manufactured from 2005 to 2013. They provide a protection for the engine. OTHER PRODUCTS. All our products have 2 years warranty.www.ebay.com
I went and looked up the bars on Wunderlich's web site, and they have the same part numbers for bars for both a hexhead (2005-2009) and camhead (2010-2013) bikes. If they are that far off, I'm guessing that either you ordered the Wethead bars (2014-2018), or they sent you the wrong set of bars. (That seems unlikely, since the bars you need to have that square bracket mounted on the bottom of the engine, and the Wethead's mount directly to the engine on side mount points.) Are you sure you haven't got the bracket sideways, backwards, upside down, etc.?I ordered the BAIONE Wunderlich clone bars and tried to fit them. The bottom frame, that bolts to the motor did to fit. The welded on tabs were too close.. The Heed bars look good, probably go with them. My budget is a bit limited right now, I may try to find a used set. Rode thru Idaho a few years ago, beautiful area.
Good decision. I think you'll be happy with 'em, but please post your experience. I'm happy with what I have installed on the bike now, but having been impressed with their rear bars, I might get the Heed's anyhow, particularly at that price.The set of crash bars I ordered were the ones for my RT. The bottom frame that bolts to the bottom of the motor, did not fit. Specifically the welded on tabs were too close together. Not possible to mount, even upside down. I did watch the video before I started, not a difficult accessory to install.
I ordered the HEED bars directly, $ 208. 00 including shipping. 211 euros, good exchange rate with the dollar right now.
Lol, I'll bet ya it's 5 days delivery, at least that's what it took to Idaho. Or, maybe it was 4 days. Anyhow, it was shipped AND received lightening fast. (Of course, the war going on over there in their backyard, may be playing havoc on their logistics now.)I am East Coast US, the HEED bars are being shipped from Poland.I will post how long it takes to get them then install them.
Sorry to hear that Mick. 😳🤦♂️😕Well I ordered the HEED bars on the 24th, they left Poland on the 25th. not here yet. Probably coming by cargo ship?
Anyway, record warm weather here in the Northeast to ride!
Yeah, something different happened with your shipping. Mine didn't go via USPS, and it didn't sit in customs, either. I guess the moral of the story for anyone else buying from Heed is to make certain they ship UPS Worldwide Saver.The USPS has my HEED crash bars in NYC, processing thru US Customs. Should get here this week, ( I hope)
My experience with UPS is not so great. They charge extra as brokerage fee when other shipping companies do not, for same value.Yeah, something different happened with your shipping.

I ordered a part from a Canadian company. They shipped UPS. There are no customs duty for the part I ordered. UPS made themselves a self proclaimed broker and added a broker fee to my shipment. I argued and explained to them there is no customs fee from Canada to the USA on this part. They said they had the right to act as a broker and charge a fee. So I had to pay or pay for return shipping and another UPS fee crossing back to Canada. Never again. I will never order anything from Canada again. I don't know if FedEx or the usps charges a fee. Its been several years know.Yeah, something different happened with your shipping. Mine didn't go via USPS, and it didn't sit in customs, either.

Definitely complain to HEED. Tell them that other riders in the USA have recommended their product, only to find out now, that they've decided on an ~~~ unconventional ~~~ shipping mode that is requiring a month to get them. They may not understand the difference in the routing they chose, or perhaps it's just the shipping company(s) that screwed up. I'd definitely let them now that others received the product in FIVE DAYS. Why is your service different?WTF, what a rip off. My HEED baes ar in the US, in the USPS system. I will post when I get them. Crazy route
