I am looking for crash bars for my '17 C50.

I found the Cobra 1.5" Fatty's and liked them well enough, but nothing shows that it will fit my 2017, only up to something like 09.

In fact a ton of manufactures do not list support of anything much bast 2011. Did something change between the years? Am I crazy to think this will fit?

where ya from...maybe someone close by bars can let you try theirs on just to make sure they fit...at worst you get a good ride in.

Thanks for the response Chedell and I did see that, I just am surprised that what fits on an older model would have changed so it wouldnt fit on this.

I'm a big fan of Cobra products, but went with Lindby bars on my 09 C50. I can't speak to fitment for your 2017, but I can speak to the quality of the Lindby bars and ease of installation. Took me 20 minutes, would have taken less if I had a second set of hands. I have dropped the bike twice on them. Once at a standstill and once at about 3 mph. Not even a scratch on the bars and they did their job of keeping any other part of the bike from touching the ground.

swear by the cobras...foolishly dropped the bike several times while pretty much at a stop...forgot to put the kickstand down...did what they were designed to do...protect the rider and more important...the bike. But they will not protect your rear signals. Word of advice...see any signals on ebay or on this forum for sale...grab them...sucks having to pay $70 to replace one...good to always have an extra.

When I bought the VL800 it had Cobras on it. In 4 years the chrome started flaking and then they would rust. Down here the ocean air doesn't help but 6 years of the lindbys on the C50 and they were as good as new.
