Handguard To Triple Clamp?
Posted February 11, 2002 - 03:03 PM
Does anyone have any experience with how to best set this up? Would the clamps that attach to the triple clamp alleviate this problem? Don't want to pay the $40 for a different bracket if it's no better.
Last question would be at what height is optimal for the guards? I would think "above" knuckle height.

I think what makes them worth the $40, or whatever, is that your guards will not rotate, and your bars will be harder to bend because the TC mount triangulates the bars to the TC.
As for height of the guards I’d say that varies. I run mine a little lower, with the top edge only about a half inch above the grips because most of the brush and stuff I run into is making contact from below. I can really scratch the heck out of a set of handshields in just a few rides, and most of the scratches are on the bottom. But I suppose if I rode in trees I might want the shields up a little higher.
Hope this helps.
