Flexxbars and Fastway Fit Handguards

just seeing if anyone is running the flexxbars with the fastway fit handguards? if so, do they mount to the flexxbars or to the supplied fastway topclamp.
I would think that if it used the fastway topclamp, that the flex in the bars would be limited.
I might be in the market for flexxbars and I'm currently running the fastway fit version 2 handguards.
if you have any pictures of your flexxbar setup, I would like to see them.

I've been wondering about that myself. Fastway says that they are compatible... it seems to me that if you use a shouldered bolt were the handguards bolt to the top clamp (so that the nut bottoms on the shoulder before really clamping the guard down) along with the supplied nylon washers, the handgaurds should be able to still pivot and to a lesser extent slide in the slotted portion of the guard, allowing the flexx bars to do their thing.

I think if it does that, the hand guards wouldn't be that tight and there would be slop in them. Hence the reason for me asking and hoping someone had this setup and can shed light on this. And hopefully some pictures too!

Looks like the fastway handguards attach normally. Not sure if it inhibits the range of motion at all.

so I got the flexxbars installed and I tried to get the fastway handguards I had on my stock bars on and there's just too many wire, cables and hoses in the way. plus the handguards have been bent, rebent and bent again so many times, it just didn't line up at all.
so I'm in the market for some new handguards I guess. so are the cycra probend the handguards to get for the flexxbars?
