I'm using Paul's internal weights.
Fit wise... one needs to "cold set" the guards for a proper fit. I would guess there are so many variations he can't get it dead on for everybody.

Griz, I can fold the mirrors in (as the other inmate indicated). Just got back from 5 days of Death Valley... most of the time with them tucked in... must be the angle of the pic.
Didn't happen if there is no pic????

Cheers,

Thanks for the info!

When tightened up they fit perfectly!!

Just installed my third set, and it's pretty straight forward now.

I know I'm ressurecting an old thread, but how is the visibility out of the mirrors on the HDB guards?

The mirrors work great for their size if you take your time and find the "sweet" spot before everything on the handguards is tightened. There is a limited amount of adjustability so don't expect them to perform as the stock mirrors.

These mirrors work great. I only ordered one at first because I was skeptical about them. But after I tried it out, I immediately ordered the other one. I love the whole setup. They also have exceptionally good customer service.

I have a Scott's damper on the DHB mount, works great, and gives me 1.5" or so of rise in the bars.

I'm just about to install these on my KTM, box came today. I'm worried about the scotts damper height, and also if I'll be able to see the computer. Forgive me for mentioning a KTM in a GS thread please

The computer is pretty much invisible after installing the damper and bark-busters. You'll want the re-locator.

If you are on the pegs in "Attack Postition" I guess you could see the computer, but if you are rolling down a road or 2 track section on your butt looking for the next turn in the course, you'll be out of luck.

I'd post a picture of my setup, but I can't remember my PhotoBucket ID.

Oh, and I'm 5'10" tall, entirely average.
