    I bought some cheapo knock offs for around $30 and they bent on my first drop - they protected the levers for the most part but cost more to replace than levers! I now have Tusk Pro HGs. Heavy duty protection. Don't waste money on cheap stuff, esp something that gets "challenged" often!
    I got mine on Amazon

    I researched for hours on this forum, and decided on the Tusk D-Flex handguards. I just purchased 2 pair for both of my TW's - haven't installed them yet.

    Any bike any hand guards it always is some kind of bending and tweaking. Never once have I had a set jump right on
    I think Cycra Guards look the best
    And the curve in the end makes room for the ends of the levers

    Tusk fit well and have been very stout in my experience on my TW and DR.

    I have Tusk D-Flex on my 2016 TW 200 and the cost about 55 bucks. I just got back from riding the Rainbow Trail around Westcliffe Colorado and they worked great. Nice hand guards for the money.

    Don't buy cheap ones. The GooFit handguards I saved $40on, instead of buying the expensive name brand ones cost me HOURS of screwing around bending them to get them to fit. I also had to buy some Cycra handguard/handlebar clamps (not cheap) to make them work and clear the cables.

    Buy some good ones. Save you sanity.
