As far as handguards go I have mounted R1250GS/GSA Touratech hand guards on my F850GSA. That kit works great so longs you have at least 20mm bar risers. I have pretty much gotten the same answers as above from Touratech, they don't plan on much for the K8x. I talked to AltRider hoping they had something for the K8x, but not yet. It sounded like that they would eventually. I have their crash bars on my Tiger 800XC and they have worked perfect.
