anyone using HDB guards with a mirage 2 fairing? I really want to make the switch, but am worried about clearance.

I just bought a set of guards for my WRR and want to know if any one has the anti-vibe inserts installed on there bike. I'm wondering if it's worth the money.

Have sets on both the F800GS and DRZ 400 and they are great. The mirrors are alright but I mainly ride trails to not really an issue. F800GS has a Relle Moto damper and the DRZ has a Scott and no problems. I really like the led turn signals. I opted for the adv top clamp and it is a handy way to store the powerlets etc. Very happy with them. Plus they have handled the abuse of a fall.

I guess I was not clear. I bought the whole handguard set up with turn signals. My question is, DOES ANYONE HAVE THE ANTI-VIBE INSERTS THAT PAUL SELLS??? I know it's a great set up that's why I bought it. just wondering if I should spend The extra $50

Curious about this as well.. Just ordered mine, can't wait for them to get here and I'm hoping for the best with the mirrors.

Yes,
I have the full set up. Inserts work fine. Mirrors, I have no issues with.
Takes a few rides to get used to.
15k miles later I'm a happy customer!
Crashed the F8 hard earlier this year (40+ down on concrete 50' slide to dirt)and the system worked great. Few battle scars, but my clutch lever was fine, bars are still straight.

Cheers,
S.

What is the purpose of the mount system that extends across the entire handlebar? It obviously weighs quite a bit, so there must be a benefit.

Unlike bar clamps this mount doesn't twist and rotate in falls. It also stiffens up the whole handlebar so it doesn't bend as easily.

Just installed a set on my 650. Only had them for about a week but they've been great so far. Got everything mounted up in about 15 minutes and Paul was great to work with. Answered many of my silly pre-purchase questions.

Finally got mine today and had them installed in nothing flat. Holy crap, these things are not only ruggedly handsome but as sturdy as it gets. I picked up both the mirrors as well and tried them out on freeway speeds. I honestly think they may have less vibration then the stock mirrors. Well done and thanks again Paul!
