Do they and is there a fix before I get the gaurds?

Sounds like you would need some sort of support then. If they are that close I would think it would be difficult to grab the front brake also, considering that you'll probably have heavy gloves on.

Maybe build a barkbuster type support? It wouldn't have to be real heavy, just enough to hold the mitt away from the bars a bit. I'm picturing a piece of flat stock or tube that bolts to the master cylinder area and extends out in front of the lever.

All typos and misspellings blamed on my phone.
