UAV gets my thanks

Doesn't she look nifty now with her new to me KTM handguards.

Just need to secure the cables or put a rubber boot on the nuts. Tried to attach the bar end back on but no dice. Oh well I'll see how the vibes are and if it isn't noticeable I won't sweat it another second.

Install was simple and only required 2 beers (1 during install and 1 afterwards to enjoy my handywork). a star tool and a hex socket.

Next is the lowering kit. I'm thinking a friend, a 12 pack and some beef brisket are the required secondary tools

What does the Hunter, preditor, raven, or pioneer have to do with your hand guards?

Lowering kit takes all of about 15 minutes to install. Way easier than my Bark Busters.

UAV was the gent who sold me the handguards I just slapped on. If he hadn't sold them I probably wouldn't have bought a set yet.

I forgot to mention that it takes hours to adjust the front forks to match the rear after lowering...................
