Review by uncleal
My wife bought these for the Explorer as a Xmas present. Although a bit spendy, they look as if they will provide good protection if I ever drop the bike. Certainly a great improvement over the OEM guards. The wind protection and the grip heaters keep my hands warm and make the bike much more comfortable for cold weather riding. Also a breeze to install with clear instructions. (Posted on 1/7/15)

Bought these for a Tiger 800XC. Fit extremely well - had to rotate the brake hydraulic line slightly but no dramas. And they work well. I waited to write this until the Tiger decided to take a nap, which it did a couple of days ago. Worked as promised; protected the clutch and picked up a little scratch, but hardly shows.

This was a pretty easy install - take of the OE and replace with this set. I also added the bar end weights and used the longer bolts (for the Explorer). Pretty sure the aluminum spine will protect the levers in a drop and the large shield will protect from the wind/rain/stones. (Posted on 10/14/14)

I purchased these handguards for cold weather wind protection as I like to ride until there is ice/snow on roads. Will have to wait to see how they work for that, but the installation/fit is first rate. Watch the 5mm difference in length of the bracket clamp mounting bolts. (Posted on 7/16/14)

I purchased these from Twisted a couple months ago after deciding to get rid of the OEM guards I had purchased with my 2012 Tiger Explorer. These are so well built and so easy to install. It took me less than 30 minutes to take the originals off & install these. I should be well protected now should TEX ever decide to lay down on the job. (Posted on 7/7/14)
