Joe, you holding out on us? I don't remember seeing this beauty at Whadahala last fall? So the DR must be your "sacraficial lamb" eh?

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.

Question unsure...

I really want to order these for my 08 XR650L that I just purchased but I have read so much about tall guys (I'm 6'2") wanting higher bars on this bike that I'm afraid to order in case I end up switching from stock to after market bars... Will these transfer to any 7/8 bar? Maybe risers are the way to go... I am a complete noob to dual sporting and can't really afford to make mistakes with mods, if any one has any insight on this topic I would be eternally grateful.

Thanks,
Phil

Got mine last month, and they look / work great! I had to a little fiddling hear and there with the speedometer mount/keyswitch mount, (it took longer for me to do that than the rest of the project....next up is some heated grips, and a powerlet.
Great product, and vendor to do business with

DRZ400S.

Too cheap to get a smugmug account, but if you want pics, I can email them.

Difference in top clamp models

Got a new (to me) bike, and may want a HDB top clamp (I've bought a few things from Paul, but figured I'd try this thread first).

On their website, I see templates for 2 versions... the SX and ADVdx.
But, I'm wondering what the two other versions look like... SXdx and "ADV".
I don't really need a custom clamp, so I'm just wondering about the pre-cut versions.

From HDB's site:
Upgrade Your Top Clamp
SX Top Clamp
SXdx Top Clamp - Add $4.95
ADV Top Clamp, Fat Bars Only - Add $14.95
ADVdx Top Clamp, Fat Bars Only - Add $24.95

I got (I think) the SXDx top clamp, for fat bars.

It has a powerlet hole, and a hole for a toggle switch.

PM me your email address and I can send you pics if you want...

SX for 7/8 or 1 1/8 no holes just basic top clamp. You could drill your own holes but for the $$ let HDB do it.

I'm working on getting those on the site today, hard to do the website stuff myself, when I really screw up I have to call Geek in to fix it.

Sorry I missed this, but I don't think we've done an HP2 yet.
