Well! Got my kit today and was trying to install them but noticed the bar clamp is made for a 7/8" bar but have the o/s one so went back to their web site and there's nothing on their site about the bar size so sent them a note and hopefully they'll be able to resolve it. From what I can see they look very nice and sturdy.

Using the Tri-Mount Kit since I have a twist throttle.

Know that some of you are using these, what did you do to make them fit on your o/s bars?

They should fit as only the clamp area is larger really. The rest is 7/8". I had them on my 1 1/8" Pro taper contours no problem.

The throttle side was ok but the clutch side would not fit but Phucknutz suggested to flip the bar clamp and it should work so I'll try that out tomorrow.

This may or may not help anybody but when I got my hand guards I spent some time juggling things around to get everything to fit to my liking. But if we can post up some pics of how we ended up may give us new ideas.

These things were a pain in the nutz! It took me longer to mount the handguards than it did to put the new sway bar on. I guess thats what you get when you buy universal stuff. Never a perfect fit. I moved levers, switches, throttle, just about everything on the handle bars to make these things work. Cutting the tab off the throttle to make room for the mount was a job in it's self. I just ordered the mounts that connect to the end of the grips and the guard. This should be just as fun I bet.

i had that same prom with tusk handguards on my 400ex, ihad to cut the throttle tab get the mounts that insert into the bar ends and you wont have to re arrange all your controls
