  • Quick Review of the Bung King crash bars on a 2018 Harley Davidson Softail Street Bob FXBB.
    Very easy to install. Just remove foot pegs and rear break lever. Slide the bars in and replace the removed parts over the top of the bars!
    Are they Bung King crash bars or Bunk King Highway pegs????

    do you have any issues when cornering, as far as the crash bar hitting the road?

      Well now ive changed the foot pegs, yes as they scrape about 5mm before the crashbars and its not nice when they hit the tar mac, so am now removing them. Ill keep them for when i plan a long trip as they are handy to stretch the legs.

    I see they bung king also has a 2-step. I’m in between that and yours. Did you see the two step? Why did you choose this one over the two step

    • StreetBobberVlogger

      Juan Moreno they didn’t make the 2 step at the time a bought my crash bars. But personally I prefer the look of mine and they can be used better for hiway pegs as the breather will be in the way with the 2 step🤘

    Did you install the bung king passenger pegs as well? I just got mine for my FXBB and it seems like I need to remove the exhaust to get that side on. Any advice or thoughts?

    • StreetBobberVlogger

      brianhannula hi yes I spent ages trying to figure it out! Unfortunately you need to remove the exhaust to get the right side on. I got mine fitted when I did the Stage 1 in the end.

    Hi
    What Bit did you use to loosen up the original bolts?
    My t40 seems too small and the t45 dont seem to fit 🤔
    Thanks

    • StreetBobberVlogger
      StreetBobberVlogger  9 months ago +1

      Pretty sure i used a T40 and put some kitchen roll over the bolt before inserting the torques bit to make the connection tighter. You need to tap the bolt and ease it back and forth. It took me a while to get them off. HD lock tight is good stuff! Good luck!

      george millard hey! They are great for stretching the legs out. I use them all the time on longer rides. They really help 👌

    what did it cost you including shipping?

    • George Michael

      Definitely worth it bud!

    • StreetBobberVlogger

      Hi it was just shy of $700 for the crash bars AND passenger pegs including postage to the UK, which worked out at $125. In pounds it was £516 plus £131 customs tax. Awful lot of money, but if it saves me damaging the bike in a "crash" or "drop" then I think its worth it. Hope this was the answer you were looking for. SBV

    Oops sorry forgot to mention about the 5 things you hate about the suspension setting. Personally I think the adjustable settings on the side looks awful spoils the lines of the bike having the adjustment under the seat keeps the lines of the bike also with the adjustment on the side is very close to the exhaust system so you can burn your skin off while adjusting or scratch your knuckles while cold as it takes a good few turns to adjust. Hopefully you will be able to get a quick release seat screw for your street bob which will reduce the faffing around on suspension setting up for you. Also might be worth considering in asking at your harley dealership how much progressive springs for your front end will cost. It cost me £60 for my softail model but I did it myself. Also did progressive heavy duty on the rear but I do go two up. Ride on.

    • StreetBobberVlogger

      Good point, thats one of the reasons I love the look of this bike...its simple lines. Yes everyone has been saying I should get a quick release crew for the seat, which i will get. Ill have a look into the fork upgrade :)

    Hello love your vlogs you are correct on your first choice for harley Davidson model. I started on 883 now own twincam 96ci.b fxs softail had her from new. Brilliant reviews on your extended pegs and memphis shade fairing. Also your 5 things you hate very good heads up. Hope you post a video when you get the seat and all the other changes you may do. Me my wife looked at the new Street bob and personally think it's the best bike in the harley range. It has so much potential for customising i personally love old school custom built harley Davidson think easy rider and 70s customs you get the idea. Really looking forward to your vlogs wondering what in the future you be changing to your H.O.G handle bars,stage 1,2,3,4 just a bit of advice stage 2 is the best value for money on performance wise and believe it or not will not put as much stress on the engine as a stage one. Ride Hard Ride On.

      Hey Alan, thank you so much for your kind words. Yes there is definitely more to come! I will of course be doing a seat review as soon as i get one. Also reviews on the stage one and any other mods I end up doing. I was looking at a cam change in the future after i get bored of the Stage 1 tune up :D Seems pretty cheep and gets a lot of horses out of it. Me too, love the old school look and you are right, definitely the best bike Harley has to offer in its new ranges! Glad you like the channel...keep a look out for the next instalments!!! Stay safe out there.

    do you think they're worth the money? i would mainly be using them as highway pegs..? now that you've had them a few days.. thanks for all the reviews!

    • StreetBobberVlogger
      StreetBobberVlogger  Year ago

      Mikael Blomquist yes they are totally worth the money. It’s so much more comfortable on long highway trips. I use them all the time. It’s nice to be able to stretch your legs while on the move. 👌👍
