No, in my experience those hand guards are not strong, they flex and allow the levers to break, defeating the purpose. That's why we went with HIghway dirt bike guards.
We have ABS and no additional brake line was needed when using the 2" ROX risers.

I don't see how removing the bar end weights effect stability, I always thought they were they for vibration damping. Never really noticed they weren't there on any bike I've taken them off, but that's just me.

Good luck!
