    Hand guard installation

    Trying to install hand guards and the cross bar on the stock bars is interfering with the Acerbis mount. Anyone have recommendations on different guards that work with the stock bars? I trimmed the end of the throttle tube but still get interference with the throttle so I took everything off for now.

    I was able to get Barkbusters on with little problem. Pretty heavy duty too.IMG_20180929_150603 (1).jpg

    The Tusk D-Flex Pro handguards fit with the stock TW handlebars.

    Are you sure that the Acerbis guards are a no-go? All universal type handguards are a bit finicky and may require some persuasion (i.e., bending) to get the mounts fitted.

    I was having trouble with the clamp hitting the crossbar with a Cycra knockoff set of hand guards. I was able to put the hand guards in a vice and bend them in to "elongate" them and it worked.
    As far as the throttle tube goes..
    Just have to trim it flush with the handlebar end, the slide the whole throttle assembly inboard. Be aware that the throttle clamp has a plastic "tit" that goes in a hole in the bars. You will have to either remove the "tit" or drill another hole in the bars in order to move assembly inboard.

    Tusk (of course).
    But the ones you have should fit. You do have to do a bunch of bending and moving stuff around. These are all generic and are supposed to fit a variety of bikes.
