If you've got'em, I can tell you that you'll like'em. I actually helped Bryan with this particular model as my bike was used for the prototype. I've been running them for about a year now, and after a few adjustments, he just started making the finished product. I'm not sure if he included a different bolt set, but you will need longer mounting bolts. No big deal, you should be able to get them for a couple bucks. I can't remember how long the stock bolts are off hand, or how long the new ones I purchased were, But they really only need to be about 1/4" to 3/8" longer. This will help with the install. My advice, go ahead and remove the seat, tank, and radiators to make this job easier. Also, when you are putting the radiator shrouds back on, start at the lower mounting hole, then attach it at the tank. The plastic will bend around the added bulk of the guards if you do it in this order. Let me know if you need help with the install.
I have been crash testing these for a year and they have held up very well. I crash alot.
