Ok, so I went the $20 Chinese Ebay hand guards. Yea...they suck and fit for crap. Lesson learned. Looking for a QUALITY set of guards that bolt up - no hassles to my stock Tdub bars.

TWy to make a TWip to the TWails to make some TWacks.
I went with Tusk D-Flex after many on here have suggested and they have been great now for over a year.
There are no such thing as no hassle hand guards. For me,something always had to be tweaked. I've never had a set jump right on
D-Flex on my bikes.

I have the Trackside handguards from cyclegear. Normally like $100 but are almost always on sale for under $50. If you decide you might like them and they are not on sale just wait a week or so and they probably will be. Mine were not even on sale the day I bought them but were the last time I went in and I mentioned it and they gave them to me for $49.
Went on pretty easy, Lots of adjustability. Though I seem to remember having to make shims for the ends where it goes into the bars... Maybe that was the Zetas on the last bike?.... Crap I forget. Only real downside for those that might like to color match to their bike is you can have them in any color you want as long as it is black.
Maxpower is right though, almost always some modding required to the guards to make them fit. Some more than others.

Cycle Racks Rack, Clarke XT350 4 gal tank, Rox 2" bar risers, 12v power port, Ram GPS mount, Coleman seat cover, Wolfman tank bag, HF "Pelican" style case attached to rack, LED headlight bulb, LED spot lights on the forks wired to the high beams, lots of mud caked on.
Future mods: Ricochet skidplate, ATV tire for snow next winter, maybe a ManRacks front rack over the headlight.
D-Flex as mentioned best bet for the buck. And very much field tested. I bought mine on recommendation from this site and very glad I did. Easy install on the stock bars.
