Has anyone fitted a pair of the KTM handguards on their bike yet? I just bought a pair, but the angle where they mount towards the center of the bars seem to be way off. Does anyone have any tips to offer? Any pics of a set installed?
Attached see pics of the KTM handguards installed. For rain or cold we put some simple PP plastic shields on and secured them with 4mm stainless screws and nylock nuts. They were simple pieces of plastic from the bottom of a cheap toolkit box, but they are flexible enough to match the KTM curve but still strong enough for the windblast. The cutout shape was just to fit the KTM guards and I made a template with cardboard and flipped it for the opposite side handguard.
Hi from UK
Fitted KTM handguards to my V some time ago,very straightforward and no prob fitting.Work well in keeping the elements at bay.Mind you, do not refit stock bar-ends ,they can fall off!! especially if overtightened as easy to do because introduction of guard into bar-end/handlebar interface is changed and no metal to metal contact exists.I did this and only just found out b4 my bar end went for a ride on its own!
I put the Acerbis on mine along with the Givi Windshield. I had a slight problem with the GIVI windshield and clearance with the Handgards, but after some twiddling, I made it all work. I bought the large "touring" Acebis and they really block the wind.
