I think I'm going to try HDB guards and hope that I can get the ignition key in and out. A little bar riser will help there.
That threaded insert is welded in------I just cut about 1/4" of the bars off and it just fell off then----it's just welded at the very end. I used an air driven cut-off wheel to do it. But a sawzall or even a hack saw would be just fine. The handlebars are just thin steel.
