    Someone suggest my best option for hand guards. I see in these forums some brands have to be altered to fit a stock TW200, and I want no part of that. I picked up my new toy yesterday, a 2008 model with 1074 miles. I think she is sweet!

    Waiting to here from Jimbo to order a dark shield. Also getting a rear rack from CycleRacks, and a Cortech magnetic tank bag. Open to any suggestions as well.



    Thanks,



    Scott

    I have these Tusk D-Flex. They fit great with no problems.



    Do a search of the forum and you'll find many others.



    Of course you WILL have to modify your handlebars/grips to accept the hand guards. You'll have to cut the end off of your grips and saw off the end of your throttle tube.
    If you can't find it, grind it

    Holy mackerel...I just got home with the bike 3 hours ago...I don't want to cut or saw anything! Is that the way all guards work?

    There are hand guards that have a solid aluminum piece that attaches near the crossbar and then on the end of the handlebar. That type will protect your hands and levers from a fall or a hit with a branch.



    There is another type, kind of like wind deflectors that won't really protect your hands from a fall, but they will deflect small twigs. This type shouldn't require any cutting. Check these out



    I've never tried them, so I can't comment on their quality.

    I know the feeling of not wanting to cut parts but it is worth it in the end. If you plan to ride your bike off road at all I would suggest getting full wraps. If you only ride street you can get away with the deflectors. I also have the d-flex and they have saved my hands and levers on several occasions.

    I live near a Yamaha dealer...I assume they will know, although I was looking at their new machine and ended up buying used from an individual. They may tell me to ask him!

    If you're off-road, then I'd highly recommend a full wrap hand guard. Mine have saved me many times. From falls to trees, they have saved not only my levers but my wrists as well.
