Crash Bars

Someone must have checked their pre vs post installation MPG with the R and G bars.
Anyone notice a difference?
Or any difference in wind noise?

I didn't notice any difference in wind noise after fitting them.

I wasn't checking MPG but I'd be very surprised if they made any difference to it at all !

IMO it is not surprising if no difference can be found in MPG or wind noise. I 'd rather think that weight might somewhat be noticeable. They add some extra pounds/kilograms but how many?
