    I got a set of Acerbis brush guards and there isn't enough room for the mounting clamp to fit between the front brake master cylinder and the bars.

    Has anyone else had this problem ? TIA

    Did you put on high mount ATV bars? Sometime the more extreme bend means no realestate for accessories.

    I have stock bars and just had to loosen things up and squish them together a bit more.

    I had the same problem, the guards were not long enough to get below the crossbar. I ended up buying different bar mounts and making up an extension because I couldn't take the guards back. If you can take them back and get the longer ones less grief in the long run. Ron

    Check these out....they look really nice. I think they might be aluminum so not as strong, but heck I am not even sure if any of them are steel.

    Thanks for the reply's. I'm not sure yet what route I'm gonna take.

    Gonna look at making an extension but I'm thinking it might shake too much if I

    don't have another anchor point closer the the hand guard.
