Any suggestions of a set of good handquards? I would like to get the kind that clamps to the bar and comes around and goes in the end of the handlebar. I want a pair that will block a good tree branch to the nuckles, but won't move around if I were to hit something harder. Any opinions of "Tusk D-Flex" handguards? I am open for suggestiions. I still have the stock bars, so help me out.
:confused:

PowerMadd all the way

fit perfect, sturdy, removable vent covers, had em for about a year now, they are still in excellent shape and have taken many a blow from trees and bushes, rocks and mud.

Sunline and MSR also make some mad barkbusters.

Yes they do! I have powermadd handguards with the Rox bracket and the handwraps with ODI grips, no problems.

Acedrbis Unikos look pretty good on the 700. I had them on my Raptor, and now on the 700 and Tecate

Can you guys that have these please take some photos of how you mounted these? I put a set on tonight and the clutch side just didn't fit for crap. I had to turn the clutch lever way down towards the ground. They look OK, but not what I expected.

thanks

Heres some pics av8r... if I remember correctly, when my 4 year old boy :birds: put these on, he told me he had to loosen the clutch assy clamp and roll it down just a hair so the guard bar would clear the rubber boot over the clutch assy. hope this helps.

I mounted mine much closer to the bar ends as mounting them that far over left my hands exposed. I moved the clutch perch over to the right and put the mount in between the controls and the perch. Can you shoot a pic of the throttle side also? Are yours mounted the same distance from the bar ends on each side? I see you used the large spacer to move yours a little further over to the ends. The instructions mentioned that not used the spacer is the most rigid mounting position. Any issues with flex on yours? I was going to get the Moose wrap arounds, but I'd like to leave the bar end weights in-tact for now.

thanks

the clutch side is about 3/4" in from the other side... and i'll admit when i first put them on i was a little worried about my hand being exposed, cause like you said it looks like one is leaving ones hand out for damage. but after having them on and not adjustin them since install (over a year now), i havent taken any hits on my hands, so i upgraded my thought on fit from doubtful to perfect. havent noticed any problems with flex, cant say they dont flex as im not really watchin, but theyre not bent or falling off and they look like they did when i put them on, so id say flex isnt an issue for me.

heres the throttle side

So you moved the brake perch away from the hand grip some? I removed the tab on the throttle housing but wasn't able to get it to fit on top like that. It was late and I was tired so I guess I'll have to give it another shot when I'm actually awake!

Thanks for all the pics,
