    I just upgraded my handlebars to "Pro-Taper Contour 1 1/8" Handlebar Woods Low Bend Black" and now my current handgaurds don't fit! :ddog
    The upgrade was so I could fit Rox Antivibration Risers and a Garmin Zumo down at the bottom of the bars near the triple clamp.

    Researching the online stores doesn't tell me much about what bikes they fit so I thought I would ask my fellow inmates.

    I need them to clear the master cylinder as the old set doesn't come close and the bar clamps for the old set are for 7/8 bars, so a new set is in the works.

    What have you all used and what do you like about them?
    Thanks!

    Ascerbis on my Pro Tapers on my KLR. Sturdy and crash well on dirt or pavement.

    Tusk...... the house brand from Rocky Mountain ATV. I have em on my 98 KLR. Like them a lot. Very durable, affordable and easy to install. Other than all of that........ they suck :lol3
