Replacing Bars; Keeping Guards

Recommended Posts

Hoping someone can help me out..  I am not a fan of the stock sweep of the T7 handlebars.  I ordered the Pro Taper Evo Adventure bars to replace them with.  I'm curious if I can retain the stock handguards with the new bars somehow?

Why do you want to keep those weak plastic bits?

T7 Barkbusters kits are sold out everywhere.  The Hepco kit looks great, but fits over the existing handguards.  I don't want to swap the handlebars until I have the guards.

Acerbis. Look great, offer protection like Barkbusters, according to several reports.

 

Mine did take the T7's whole weight today, small scratches - nothing else.

i also got the acerbis.. used barkbusters but my clutch cable got damaged by them [apperenly you need to order and aditional item with long waiting times to prefent this]

thy have different plastic's that fit the aluminium bracket

 

also if the bars have threads you should be able to. if not than you need to thread them.

watch it with the thread type.  i made a mistake with that as well.. and now i use the plug style fastening of acerbis.

Most aftermarket handlebars need to be threaded to accept the stock bar end weights so you can use the stock handgurds.

Just pickup a properly sized tap to thread your new bars.

If I remember correctly the thread is M16x1.5 .
