Good luck finding any. They are a strange size and shape, and there are no (longer) any aftermarket manufacturers that I know of.

The BIG KILLER on aftermarket Wing bars is the cable lengths AND where they're routed.
"OIL CHANGE?" _FM 07-2009
Know its new taste and be loyal, you'll know when to change that oil.
Taste testing as those miles flow, souring as that acid grows.
And don't flirt with dirt or darkened oil, all the faster your engine will spoil.
