These Handguards Crap
Posted July 02, 2005 - 11:22 AM
I picked up a set for my wife's bike and ended up having to try to buy parts to get them to fit. I got them on but still have to take them off again to try and get them to fit right.

The piece of hose that came with it was way too small. Even lubed it would not slide on. So I split it down the length of the hose and slipped it on over the clamp. But when I did this the thing was too dam wide to fit into the handle bar end.
All I can say is that the Tusk D-Flex Handguards I bought for my WR were excellent.
The moose guards were for my wife's TTR.

Sound like operator error?

Oh and BTW, the Moose handguards and Enduro Engineering handguards are IDENTICAL. I think the same manufacturer makes both. The new plastic shields are different, but a few years ago they were the same.
The only difference is the name thats on the front of them. I like the moose shields better since they are not as big.

The part that fits into the end of the bar is going to be a very similar design. It's supposed to fit easily, then tighten as you crank down.
Like someone said above, only use the rubber tube for steel bars.

Ehh.... cheaper, yes. Better? Let's just say that they're both very good guards.
I have never had a problem with Moose handguards. They have ALWAYS served me well. Much better and cheaper that Cycra.
To quote Wrooster:
"If you bend your Cycras, you can fix them when you get out of the hospital."
