    They are and they arent....

    I havent seen DG's bike up close, but Im pretty sure theyre the EXC guards with the metal adapter at the bottom (as per KTM/Touratech kit).

    The fork guards are longer - that much is good.
    But the RHS fork guard doesnt match the bracket - and as such has to be bent out of shape to fit.
    The metal brackets have captive nuts - and in my case, it took next to no sideways pressure to pop them out (the bent fork guard provided the force). They are press-fit, so once they come out, they will never stay in again.

    The thing that bugged me, however, is that the metalwork at the bottom makes removing/replacing the front wheel more difficult. The brackets interfere with the brake discs when you twist the forks to let the tyre past the callipers...

    :freaky
    No doubt I am very lucky.
    I went through a lot to be able to live in Colorado (11 years in immigration, etc) and I don't regret it one bit.
    I can't wait until the "other side" of Colorado melts out and I can play with the 950 up high.
    This really is adventure motorcycle heaven (as my smugmug can attest to :ricky )

    p.s. when I (eventually) scratch my 950 all to hell there is a very good chance it is going to end up painted just like yours :D :freaky

    Yours is one of my favorite looking 950s of all time :thumb

    Hmm, sounds like a ploy to upgrade to a 990R to me. :evil

    Just kidding, hope you are back in an orange saddle really soon.

    Don't tell my wife that.:lol3

    I'll probably stick with the regular 990,,I'm too short for the R.

    I'm hopeing to be shopping in the fall,,,,should be a good time to get the best price on a bike too.

    I'm also wondering when the big girls will see an update,,,they're due.:nod

    If I'm not mistaken it looks like Flanny's exhaust.

    In fact, it is I recognize the modified Black Dog skidplate.

    Nice fitment though.
