So, every now and then, I decide I want something really bad. After replacing 3 bent levers, I decided it was time for handguards. Or training wheels. I looked at all the brands I could and all ran up a not-so-bad bill of about $80. When searching eBay for a good deal though, I noticed these $36 guards! And they were aluminum-backed and was available in black! So I threw the dice and ordered them. I couldn't find a review on them, so I thought I should post up my experience. Everything appears to be made of cheap steel (no duh) but they really do look nice! I will put on a picture this weekend! Now, here is the issue I had, these were supposedly made to fit the TW handlebars. But the end that goes in to the bars (under the grip) looked like (and felt like) it was made for a MUCH smaller bar. So I maxed out the tensioning device on it before I decided to remove it and add some material to it using what I had around the garage. I ended up using general use grip tape. They cleared the lever on the left side just fine with no drama (about 1/8" clearance) but on the right side, it was much tighter. It touched the brake fluid reservoir, but only. No problems there! Then, when I went to clamp the other end to the bars, it looked like the clamps were made for much LARGER bars! ARG! But then I had a creative solution. I cut two 2" strips of serpentine belt. I figured since a serpentine is designed to grab tight on both sides, this would be favorable. I used it on the left and right clamps and, to my surprise, they bit hard! The guards are in place, nice and tight. So, it took some fighting, but I really think they were worth the $36. Will I replace them? Eventually, yes. I like a super clean fitment, and this doesn't meet my extra-strict criteria, plus I want Pro-Taper bars. But, if, like me, you fall over a lot and have a trip coming up, do not hesitate to get this cheap insurance. They look good, function exactly as they should, but be ready to fight a bit getting them on. If anyone has any questions, please let me know, I will be more than happy to answer!
