guards, and how did you mount them?
Pics would be awesome.

now have the handguards to protect the brake line from any direct hits.
The headlight upper mounting hole will not fit without some modifications
either. I just took an angle grinder and ground down the radius section
of the plastic tab so that the hole would line up with the bracket. Basically
just cut the excess off the end. The metal that the bolt goes through
will remain in place. Just grind down the plastic until you get to the metal.
