On my CR I ended up grinding out a bunch of the end of the tube but it was never 100%. Once I put on Bark Busters I didn't see much of a reason to go with an aluminum tube though as the main reason I found for them was crash damage on the end would be far less with the aluminum one where plastic would break. Bark busters eliminated that issue as the guarded the end of the bar.

well, just needing to change out some parts, and thought the metal might be a better option than the plastic. my bike came with acerbis plastic guards (no bar) and the plastic throttle tube is a bit cracked. I am slowly gathering parts for the winter tear down. thought it may be better to replace with metal than plastic. and i am going to add some handguards with the metal bar. i am liking the look of the pro bends with the low profile shields.
