I think Carbon Performance makes them for the stocker.

Totally worth it

If anyone is on the fence about these guards I can assure you that they are made to last. Daryl spent a lot of time a several visits to make sure all the test pieces and molds were correct to ensure a proper quality part. I have several other off the shelf carbon parts and none even come close to these.

Thank You
just a note..
I had a PM about one side did not quite fit as snug as the other. This could be due to tank swelling or something else.
Be cautious not to flex the guards to much on install . It would be better to use a bit more adhesive and allow a slight gap then to have the guard trying to pull itself off the tank.
If anyone has any issues please let me know..Your feed back is extremely important to me.

Well I got mine mounted and I think they are going to be great.

On a dry trial fit I found the right side fit very well and the left did not follow the tank as well. Daryl had noted this may be the case in a post above. There are butt loads of posts about Safari tanks not fitting well or deforming when removed,ect, ect....so I'm sure no two are the same. Once the adhesive was applied it fit fine. This is how I did it.



I resisted the urge to spread it out and just left it in globs. My father in law is a wood working hobbiest and has every kind of clamp known to man so I borrowed an assortment before starting and guess what? None of them would work. After some head scratching and a beer or two this is what I came up with.



Cam straps from my white water gear bag. These worked great for holding them in place without flexing them. The painters tape was probably not needed but it made me feel better. I'll post up a finished pic when after I get it all back together.

OK, So what is the recommended silicone to use to mount these?

Is it the Dow Corning 732 shown if this pic, or something else?



I want to have a tube on hand when my guards arrive so I can mount them immediately.

Any good silicon based ADHESIVE will work. I just installed these on my 950 adv using DAP marine grade silicone adhesive.available in any hardware store

Here's how I did it...

Step 1: Find motorcycle.


Step 2:
Find where the guard goes.


Step 3: Use RVT adhesive.




Step 4: Use clamps.



Step 5: Wait 24 - 36 hours.


Step 6: Admire how nice the new guards are.




Thanks Cyclops.
