Carbon Fiber Tank Guard Availability? (950 Adventure)

I loaned my 2005 950 Adventure to a friend who managed to drop it at about 25 mph.

Damage seems to be limited to a broken left mirror and clutch lever, and the left carbon fiber tank guard did its job but is now substantially worn away:



Don't think it would provide much protection going forward.

Has anyone found these recently? I've tried Googling to no avail.

Thanks in advance!

PS - I've been away from the site for a few years with other hobbies and sites soaking up my attention. Glad to be back!

Might have a set I could part with, not sure if it is the same model and how bad shipping would be.

And Swedish currency is strong right now so its hard to sell stuff to other countries =( ...good for buying tho =)

When KTM came out with the 990 and the cheap, durable factory plastic tank guards, it seems the guys stopped making them out of CF.

Thanks, guys.

I actually found a set of tanks, with the guards, for a good price online.

Figure it can't hurt to have them as spares, knowing what new tanks cost.

But for information, do the 990 plastic guards fit the 950? If so, how about a link?

Thanks!

I know this is a older post but what mods are needed to make the 990 guards work? maybe I should scrap the sw-motech guards and put some of these on. Thoughts ?

The rear mount is not there on the older tanks so some plastic needs to be trimmed.

Slightly longer bolts for the 2 lower bolts on the front fairings, same length as the top bolt that is slightly longer then the rest.

Not much really. The 990 tank guards need to be trimmed just a little to make them work. The four top mounting bolts needed to be opened up just a little on my application. The rear mounting point of the 990 guard, which was just an empty hole, I filled with a plastic cover from Lowes. The lower "fin" on the guard had to be trimmed to fit behind my crash bars, but that just took a little sanding to bring it down some. Overall, I believe it was a very good upgrade. I've already scratched the left one.
