    Handguards...

    Hey fellas,

    Just a quick one - I bought some of those 'TMS' handguards on Amazon last year, could never get them installed so gave up on 'em (mounting hardware didn't line up anywhere on the bars I could find, so I even tried bending the guards to make 'em work and broke one). Anyway, I busted the clutch lever and mirror mount on a minor dump the other day, figure it's time to revisit this. Just want some decent handguards that install no hassle. Saw a few posts on the D-Flex ones...would these be those? Amazon.com: Tusk D-Flex Handguards/Spoilers Black/Black: Automotive

    Price doesn't matter, just want some that I can install and be done with. Curious what y'all are running and was easy to install. Already cut my grips for 'em...

    Somewhere on here I had posted a link to the Barkbuster ones they made for the training bikes...they were incredibly beefy and model specific...but derned if I can find it.

    Yes, but as an Amazon seller, I hate that company. Do yourself a favor and buy them here:

    Yes i just installed those same ones (tusk d flex with spoilers) super tight fit. Didnt take too long just tight and finicky. I had to move the brake lever a tad. Looks great though.

    I installed the aluminum Tusk gaurds and love them. Look great, have proven super tough and installed easy! Cheap too.

    Zeta XC drop down hand guards. They were very easy to install, no modifications, other than punching out the ends of the grips for the inserts. They come in a bunch of colors and at least two sizes. You can even get turn signals in them, or add later, and get rid of the stock ones. I believe they may be Cycra rebranded.
