Great. However they will not protect your hands from cholla cactus, or keep them warm when its 20 degrees. But then again keeping from destroying a clutch lever is a redeeming advantage by itself. I'd add some plastic hand guards to accessorize the bars installed. Tom

I have these exact same Tusk hand guards (only with the plastics on) and I have no idea how people are installing them with the clamps below the central bar on the handlebars. I always thought people were using after market bars but yours look stock. So either yamaha changed the length of the stock handlebars from 89 to 2000.. or tusk has quality control issues.

They look good. Where'd you get them? Did they come with the plastic covers?



I need to get something on before winter to keep my hands warm, plus it's only a matter of time before I break a lever out in the middle of nowhere... two birds, one stone.

I got them at Rockymountain ATV, they have a plastic package you can buy i just have ot got around to it. I have to buy things little by little. Otherwise the better half will chim in. You can get the plastics in a multiple of colors. I am going to wait until it gets cold to put them on.

I mounted the same ones on the '87 with stock bars, no issues other than moving the levers in about 1/4".



The pictures were taken before I lined everything up the next day.
