I don’t as of now but have been interested in them for a while. Think they are a really good piece of protection and technology. Haven’t got one so far mainly because of the price. I’d prefer the ones that use algorithms rather than a tether but having to buy the air bag and a coat or suit that it’ll work with is so expensive! Easily $1,200-1,800! Dainese has come out with a stand alone vest that’ll work under any coat or suit for $699. This will probably be the route I go with when I finally break down and get one. Hoping Alpinestars will come out with a similar version.
I've been thinking of getting Astars techair vest and a jacket but like your saying it's a lot of money plus 4 me I've got one 2 piece suit and 5 jackets so if I got techair I'm stuck with one jacket.
The problem with techair that a dealer told me is that even if you don't use it for a year it has to be sent in for a service.
I'm thinking maybe hit air is the go?
I have two; one is the japanese Hit Air and the other is a Rivet ; both are good but the Hit Air the far superior; I know it works because I inadvertently set if off when leaving the bike to fuel up and not disconnecting the lanyard; you've probably noticed that now MotoGP riders all have Alpinestar leathers with automatic gas release air bag technology; to get that on your body is several thousand dollars
Yeah they are pricey! The tethered versions are more affordable but know I’ll constantly forget and end up swelled up! But the tethered versions usually seem to be able to be recharged by the owner. The Alpinestars and Dainese say you have to send it back to them to recharge after it’s been deployed. Hoping they get more affordable in the near future and they will make them so the average person can recharge them. Looked up the Hit Air and Rivet. Hadn’t heard of those.
Is there a device that can be put to protect the ignition switch from being tampered?
Thieves carry devices that act like a master key, (or kids that mess with things) they may not steal the bike but they may ruin the switch by inserting any device. I don't leave my bike in the street even for...
A few weeks ago, in one of the aftermarket mirror threads, a member posted about a bar clamp from a different model to get rid of the useless stock mirror posts.
Part # 59671-01H00, that would work on the GSXS. It was just one quick post, but I thought "interesting" and followed up on it. Even...
