Cycra handguards

Do cycra CRM bars fit on a 990 even with the U clamps (the extended ones)?
I picked up a set cheap and want to now if I can get them to fit or do I put them on Fleabay and get something more specific for the 990?

Dunno, but I know a man who will

Have a chat with Chris or Dave at Adventure Spec, if it is possible 10:1 they have the bits to make them fit.

Good luck, hope you wont put them to the test too much :-)

No input on the fitment, and I can see that you already have a set, but we always had trouble with the cycra guards bending a lot, both on supermoto race bikes and my XR650R It seemed like you could barely drop them without being tweaked, and your bike is quite a bit heavier. I switched to the Enduro Engineering guards and they stayed in place 10 times better, in fact I had crashed on one double on the track that broke my leg and it tweaked the guard down about 1/2". I think the key is the much stiffer metal EE uses combined with different style bar inserts that resist rotation much better. Just something to check out.

I've had the Cycra Pro Bends on a 950 for several months and through a few low speed drops and they are working well for me.

Am using them with a Kaoko Throttle Lock as well.

The way the handlebar bracket is designed allows me to position my controls lower, the way I prefer.

YMMV
