Cant wait to get it all assembled!

thanks again!! Awesome customer service and an all around great guy!!

So...............how does the pickup steer now??

That looks like what I wanted to get made for my GPR when I ordered my HDB set up, but decided to leave it until I had more time.

Let us know how it works out.

I sure am happy with my HDB set up. You can even see quite well out of the mirrors..........and that is saying a lot since they are mounted on a 640 KTM paint shaker!

Cheers

Nothing but praise for Paul and his products. Always Johnny on the spot with service. Especially great about replacing broken parts and misc. bs when I swapped handlebars. Worked well with Fasst Flexx bars. A pic of the business end on a DR650 with YZ450 USD forks. Very happy. Can you tell?

I'm assuming these probably won't work with an R1200GS?

Can you show a pic from the front of the bike so we can see how the HDB handguards are attached so they can pivot?
I'd likely gone this route, instead of using BRP's Flexx Mounts (and Cyra guards), if I knew the HDB guards would work with this bar. Instead, I relied on this:

BRP Flexx handlebar mounts are designed to mount your handguards directly thru the pivot tube on your Flexx Handlebar system and don't affect the ability of the handlebar to flexx. The BRP Flexx Mounts are the only available handguard mounting system for the Flexx Handlebar System.







Thanks!

Sorry guys, I'm still here, we have taken long weekends the last 2 weekends and I very behind on my emails, the priority has been to get all the orders out timely, I'll work at trying to clear them all.

Dean, I apologize for yours, I did read the PM notification and it didn't occur to me to check the HDB account, I've quit using that as I was warned about having 2 ADV accounts. Anyone wishing to PM me please send them to me at theantipaul.

Thanks

While I don't make shorter guards yet that will work with the BRP/Bones type adapters, the guards and Flexx bars work fine bolted up normally with a Delrin washer between the swivel guard joint.

Let me know if that makes sense.

Hi Kurlee, as far as a 1200, I haven't a clue as I haven't knowingly done one yet.

To try I'd need to know the bolt pattern of the top clamp, if it has stock bars with bar end weights, how the weights are attached, how wide the bars are, what issue if any as far as fitment and the controls are as typically these big bikes have longer levers and huge reservoirs to deal with. If it's not stock all of that too.

When I bought my '87 KLR650 three years ago, the first farkle I bought for it was a set of HWD hand guards with the fold out mirrors. I have to say that it was the best money I have spent on my bike to date. Those guards are indestructible and have saved my day many times over. I've had some pretty good crashes that would have mangled lesser guards and bent the bars into a pretzel but I only had to clean the dirt off and ride away. The product is definitely worth the money but the customer service is unsurpassed. When I ordered my set, Paul was just getting started and so the web site was still being fine tuned. I had no idea that the stock handlebars on a KLR were steel and that you need aluminum bars to work with hand guards because the ends need to be tapped. I was really perplexed when I couldn't get the tap to work on my bar ends. I called Paul right away and he knew immediately that I needed aluminum bars. He basically shipped me what looked to me to be a brand new 7/8 aluminum bars with the ends already tapped and he wouldn't take a dime to cover the shipping or the bars. I installed the bars and was really happy. Fast forward about 18 months and I called him up looking for a different top clamp so I could incorporate a set of Roxy anti-vibe risers into my set up. He had the top clamp I needed listed on the web site but I couldn't order it (Website snafu) so I called him again. He told me that that particular top clamp was part of a special order he had done for someone and no longer made it. He then said, "I think I have one laying around." He put it in a box and shipped it to me free of charge again. He wouldn't take a dime from me. Now I hope he has wised up a little so he can stay in business but I will tell anyone who'll listen that this is a super product and a super vendor worthy of your hard earned money. If you ride your bike everywhere and you need it to get you home after riding the trails, don't skimp on your handlebar protection. Get a set of these and forget about it. Paul did say I was the first KLR rider to have these and that is a real point of pride for me. If I ever sell my KLR, the handguards come off and stay with me. They're that awesome.

I see from the post above, that you havent done anything with a 1200GS yet, so I guess the answer would be the same for the 1150GS?

Tiger 800XC Install

Just finished installing handguards, top plate and mirrors on my Tiger...all went smoothly...

The only surprise was that the handlebars on the Tiger have threaded inserts that are used to mount the stock handguards and they use a slightly smaller bolt. Rather than futz around with trying to remove the inserts, I just used the original bolts which were also of a countersunk design.

My order arrived sooner than expected and I'm very happy with the results...a first class operation! I'll spread the word!

Cheers!
