Has anyone else mounted stock XR handguards to their bike? I would have gone with aftermarket, but I have the larger windscreen on and anything else looks like it will hit.
Do a search for the part number: OEM Number: 90114-MN9-771. This is the bolt for the brake lever. Maybe you'll find a supplier that doesn't charge you an arm and a leg for shipping.
Same part for many Hondas.
Nice "new" fairings by the way! :-)
