Basic tools will do the job it's just a bit of a tight fit because of the stiff brake line thats a bit in the way. But well worth the effort, they feel solid and and are the best looking ones out there. I sprayed plastic dip on the inside of the bar ends to stop a vibrating noise the spacer would make inside it.
Dropped by bike the other day, with a full tank of fuel (trying to zip my jacket to my pants with one foot on the rear brake, not a good idea). The only damage on the bike is a scuff on my left handguard and it bent very slightly. I couldnt beleive it, the bike didnt touch the ground in no other area! My MT-01 fell to the ground after a gust of wind on it's cover and damages added up to 1100$. This is one tough little bike
Both inside mounting pieces and hex head screws stripped during the install. (That was a fun fix )I was using normal allen wenches with light hand power and I hadn't even got to torqueing them yet. Plus they didn't align properly no matter how I positioned them.
The guard shells and mounting hardware for the ends of the handle bars went on smoothly just the inside mounting hardware was trash.
Don’t know if I’d spend the money on these again.
They look good I guess that’s a plus.
Now I’m going to go on a test ride to see if they say on and in place.
