Several of you use these. I'm in need of hand guards and this is one of the contenders, in a big way.

I've read all the hand guard threads i could find here.

They look awesome.

Main questions:

Would you buy them again?

Big one here--->Given the one mounting point... Have you "tested" them in a fall or other misfortune? My concern is primarily for lever protection in a tip over.

sharrison56 is the only one i could find from what i went thru on the being down/tested them area.


Leave the bar end on between the handlebar and the hand guard or ditch the bar end.




Also, where's the best place to buy these, still mc superstore?

thanks everyone

weljo thanks, did you just get a longer bolt and leave the oem bar end on there?

Used what came with the handguards. If i remember correctly it had 2 different lengths of bolts and 2 different size spacers. I used the thickest spacers and the longest bolts with the barends on. Just took the stock bolt out placed the spacer at the end of the barend then lined up the handguards and ran the bolt through.It was super easy.
