    ...about a month and a half ago from Elite Motorsports in Loveland Colorado. So yes, they are available in the USA. The grommet thing is a good idea...right now I'm just running around with a hole where I removed the nipple.

    Haven't crashed with them and really don't expect them to offer total protection...but every little bit helps especially at about 11 bucks a pop.:wink:

    Just fitted these to my 950. Look great!

    I think they will offer reasonable protection, especially if coupled with external bars. Certainly good for covering up some battle scars.

    Here are the part numbers for the tank protectors and hardware. I've ordered all of the below parts from my local dealer here in Louisiana. Took about a week to come in but I have not yet installed them. Weather has been too perfect to stop riding and work on the bike. These parts were looked up on the Cyclehutt website.

    This info is great!....I went and bought the 2 tank protectors, shaved off the 990 fitting and glued the gromets to cover up the hole.....there's a small detail though....the 2 upper tabs don't line up at all plus, the whole protector seems to be shaped different from the tank's shape.
    What am I doing wrong? the upper tabs definetely don't line up...did you shaved them off? it seems the side cover would sit on the lip of the tank protector and keep it in place....
    Any ideas?

    Nevermind.....I just had to force it in place....which brings me to my next point: the fitting of the body parts with this bike sucks.

    And when you scrape up the first pair, buy a second set and cut the mounting tabs off. Install the old scraped up set inside the new for double thickness.

    Do the stock 950 tank "bumpers" at the bottom mount get re-installed with the 990 tank guards? The pictures in this thread are not clear on this detail. Thanks!

    Has anyone tried to fit these with HB crashbars as well??? {I know, I'm a "belt and suspenders" kinda guy.} :shog I like my crashbars, but the PO of my bike was able to gouge the left tank on a rock even with the bars in place.

    I've found that they are a poor fit. If you line up the top tabs the bottom hole is a good inch away from where it needs to be. It's almost like it needs a large spacer of some sort.
