Cycra hand guard problem
Posted September 13, 2009 - 07:46 PM
Does this look right? I know sometimes you have to bend the guards a bit, but this is too much.
The hanguards are cycra probend (not the CRM) and the U-clamps are p/n 1150-02. I have the U-clamps on the bar loosely. They are tapered and fit OK where you see 'em, but for the length of the hand guards they need to be about 2" closer to the handlebar mounts.
I'm thinking the guys at the shop gave me the wrong clamps. Or am I going about it wrong? Thanks.

I had the EXACT same problem with mine on my all stock 09. In the end, instead of trying to return stuff and what not I simply cut about 1 and 1/2 inches off the inside portion of the Cycra guard, drilled a new hole and used a BFH and my vise to bend it just a bit to fit.
Sucked to have to do ANY mods to a $100 item to get it to fit but in the end it looks fine and works great.

For those of you who may go down the same path, the correct part number for the Cycra U-clamp is 1156-02. They are stamped "KTM" but if you read the cycra catalog they are described as fitting 08 pro tapers.
OK, OK, I know this is a boring thread, but since I started it I figured I should at least share the answer.
