Those and "Leg Pegs" seem like solutions in search of a problem. My 530 had bulges in the area where these devices would go. Those bulges were one of the things I didn't like about that bike.

Tempting! I had a 1992. That bike went everywhere, including the Yankee Doodle and Bradshaw trails. I think I would rather have a KTM 550 2 stroke again, though. :evil
