Hand guards

I am considering installing a set of hand guards on a 02 1150R. Can the guards for the 1150 GS fit perfect or do I need to do some tweaking or fabricate something? Thank you!

FPK or Canella

I'd recommend Yamaha dealer Canella in zona 9 in Guatemala City or widely known FPK (efe pe ka) and likely lower cost and just a few blocks apart.
