Oh crickey! I have no idea about the Kaoko thingy so I can't comment about that. All I can say is that the 1050 hand guards, once you bought the whole kit, are pretty much a direct bolt on replacement for the OE XC guards.
As opposed to
So you've got brackets that use the pivot bolt on the levers. Then they bolt into the end of the bars. It really is that simple.
I don't really have any photos of when I put them onto the standard XC bars other than from the front.
This is from when I'd just finished installing the Renthal bars. I had unique spacers made to suit the handle bar ends.
This one is when I had the Renthals and the 1050 guards on my Scrambler. You can just see that there's two bolts onto the inner bracket which is, I believe, what give the whole assembly better stability. It's what the XC guards are lacking. You can also see that the guards are about 5mm thick. The molded in rib around the middle also adds strength.
That's the best I can do at present.
