KTM 690 handguards on the Versys
I was able to get ktm handguards to fit on my versys.
I had to buy longer M8x1.25 bolts for the bar ends and some fender washers to sandwich between the handguards.
The handlebars are beefier than the versys's, so the handguards don't clamp very tight on the versys handlebars. It's tight enough so that it doesn't flop around. It would take a strong hit with a mallet to move the handguards up or down. That's good enough for me, since I only care about wind protection. If you care about offroad protection for your hands and levers, get the aluminum handguards. Fastway handguards are my favorite!!
I moved the levers inward by a 1/4-inch just to be safe.
I sanded the orange plastic with some 600 grit sandpaper and then spray painted it. I didn't use spray paint that's meant for plastic....hopefully it won't peel.
I probably should've spray painted the fender washers black, but whatever....
I have the GIVI windscreen and I can do a full lock. Nice!
I think it looks nice. The matte black spray paint matches the matte black part of the bike. They block wind just fine. I'm happy with how it turned out.
