Yes that is the one! It is a different piece with no bar end weight on it. I am working on pics right now... updating my thread!

That design makes it something of a safety hazard, IMO. I can't imagine what the design engineers at Wunderlich were thinking.

David, I got my Kaoko working, and I can completely see how this makes sense now. I cannot picture it the other way... works like a charm!

Cool! How'd you finally get the Kaoko to fit with your OEM guards?

Edit: Never mind. I saw your other post.
