    Any solutions for running a Voyager Pro with these? I like them but unless I can get a clean mount for the Pro Im going to have to stick with my BRP setup

    Which top clamp do you have? I've seen these mounts or even the montana mounts where the top clamp is drilled and tapped and mounted flushly. I just use a ram round. No wobble wobble at all

    I just ordered the standard 90mm top clamp and handguards. Planning on using the billet Trailtech mount/guard and attaching it to the 2 tapped holes in the HBD topclamp normally reserved for the modular dash. We'll see how things space out but Id like a solution for relocating my indicator lights. Low fuel and FI light are pretty important to see if they are lit.

    Anybody have any contact with HBD lately?
    I placed an order 2 weeks ago and havent heard anything except that my card got charged.
    The phone number I have goes to a generic voicemail.

    I know they are a small operation but come on...

    That was my experience a couple of months ago also. Responses were slow but everything eventually showed up. Looks vera nice, but the garage has been too cold to fiddle with making new cables and other stuff I need to do so haven't set it up yet.

    Same here. They have the worst customer service in the industry, but I keep going back :-/ It's been a waiting game the last 3 times I've ordered from them.

    I want to order a dash plate and display mount too, but I'd like an update on the order I placed 2 weeks ago before spending more $ with them.

    I'd rather wait for high quality equipment than have cheap crap on my doorstep in 24 hours...

    I hear ya, but when I have a brand new bike sitting in my shed waiting on parts, it's quite annoying. I just spent $100 on temporary cycra hand guards so I have some protection while I come up on week 3 of waiting on a top clamp so I can use my HDB guards.

    I've bought enough from Paul and Co many, many times over the years and I wouldn't hesitate to do so again. That said it is a little disheartening to hear others not have such a positive experience. I've had the best communication with them via email.

    They still make the best hand guards on the planet regardless of anyones experience.
