Sorry man! Us Moab guys have to start being smartasses to one-another now so we can get the max enjoyment out of our trip.
I really didn't have anything else constructive to say!

Do the Maier's have aluminum or rubber bar inserts? One set of bark busters I saw had a silly little bolt covered in rubber that when tightened, expanded to fit the inside of the bars. I like the fastener set from Acerbis better. It uses offset aluminum pieces to bite the inside.
Second note, I kind of like mine to turn a bit. I'm guessing it deflects a little of the impact - huh? I keep all my levers and triple clamps under-torqued so they will twist (and then twist back) in the event of a crash. Certainly not loose, but loose enough that they don’t bend/break. Nothing professional about it - well except the crashing. I'm damn good at that! Any ideas?

Sorry Jake, but I find myself smiling just thinking about that
But hey, don't feel bad, I'm the dummy that doesn't use them and ends up replacing three levers on one ride.

Too bad, I really liked the SRC triple-clamp mounting postion, the guards were very lightweight, and looked cool because they're different. I'll definitely revisit their product when they release the WR kit.

I tried to get the SRC (Sommers Racing) handguards to fit on my WR for 2 days, and eventually then sent them back for a refund. SRC was apologetic and said that they will design a kit specifically for the WR.
I just installed a set of the SRC's on a WR. They have obviously changed their fit problems. These were perfect. My buddy is running full levers and Jimmy Button Renthals which are almost an inch over the stocks. The SRC's arrived in three packages. 1 for the WR, 1 for the Jimmy Button's and 1 for the standard fitting and fasteners. I was very impressed with their engineeing, but you could quickly see they can't be swapped from bike to bike - like the Acerbis. They provided maybe an inch of adjustment for cut-down bars.
I took a particular interest because of that ride Dougie mentioned and my new found habit of bouncing off of properly placed hard objects instead of turning. It takes much less energy
