He indicated to me that he would be willing to build the side guards for someone if they were interested. That was a while back - if you want to talk to him you can find send him a PM at KTMTalk.:

Note 2: If I were building these from scratch, I would extend the lower side guards all the way down to the frame lugs, rather than clamping them around the weak subframe. Subframe failure often involves damage to the lower subframe nutserts, so I think bypassing that weak point would be wise. Boot interference will be an issue, but not a serious one with some creativity.
I remember that thread... it was a good one. I really like his design. Wonder how they are holding up.
