To me the ZTech bars sit very close to the injection equipment.  Any movement inwards in a heavy drop will destroy it.

Its your bike my friend.  I'm sure they will do you fine.  I spent many years in a dealership so have fixed views on a lot of aftermarket stuff.

Looks like the Wunderlich (RT) & BMW (GS) Engine Protection Bars use the same 3 mounting points.
