Hey r0ckrat, I browsed through your build thread looking for info on your hand guards, and was pleased to find the info here. How do you like the ones you have? How does the mounting work? Can they be mounted with bar end mirrors, and if so, do they force the mirrors to stick out further?

Thinking about picking some up for touring duty.

They clamp on the bar just inboard of the main controls, so no problem with bar end mirrors. I'll get some more pics of them. They definitely provide a little extra wind protection, and I may take them off for the summer...

Here are the brackets themselves:

No wind vibration, it's a pretty stable mount. I wouldn'twant to brush up against a tree with them, but...

Nothing new at this time.

I checked at idle recently with a db meter on my phone, it was reading 88db at idle with the additional silencer tip, when cold, and in need of a repack job... It's got a nice growl, but is nearly as loud as my friends Ducati 1000DS with Arrow pipes...
