I ordered these from Germany Wednesday and they turned up this morning! Great service from BS Motoparts.
They are very simple to fit, a 10 minute job. Except in my case one of the small allen bolts securing the plastic panel under the tank was seized and needed drilling out!
I can only assume that some idiot loctite it into place at the factory.
The only thing not obvious from pictures is that you need to trim both of the triangular covers a touch, but that's pretty simple.
I'm really pleased with them. They suit the Urban perfectly, and are very well made. Everything lined up perfectly, a sign of good design and manufacturing.

Wow, that is pretty cool! Thanks for the reply.
I have entertained the idea of making one myself, but coming up with robust mounting points was a challenge. Could you share some information concerning YOUR mounting points and hardware?

Thanks Nick,Just ordered one along with some LED Givi style projector spotlights.
UK company Bykebitz are doing the bars for the same price as BS Motoparts for anyone interested.

I used the stock mounting points, but with some thick rubber blocks sandwiched between the plate and the crankcases. The front mount is bolted on spacers bolted to the front valve cover. The valve covers are plastic but I have a spare alloy one.
It's not ideal, but the only way I could see to fix it. If I hit a rock hard enough to transmit enough force to damage the valve cover, then it's done its job. Anything like that would've smashed the cases!
The fuel tank holder is there to replace the R/H pannier and keep the spare fuel away from my clothing whilst on trips :)

Yeah, I had some spare angle bar in the workshop, and wanted a way to carry the can securely for my Morocco trip in April. I enjoy building stuff, and the Scrambler has given me an excuse! :)
