Moose Handguards: 08 WR450?

Got a set of Moose handguards.

Question. Anyone have trouble installing these or have any pics/tips? Throttle and Clutch cabe seem to be right in the way for optimal installation/ Mount below (too low) Mount above (too high).

What's the deal? I feel stupid, but just does not seem to fit correctly.

Thanks:banghead:

Rotate the clutch perch and throttle housing up.

Mount handguards in desired location.

Put the clutch perch and throttle housing back.

I have the MSR guards which are the same as the moose. This is what I did.

You might also have to bend them quite a bit to get them to fit nice. I had to use a vice to bend and shape them a little to get things lined up so I could install the bolts.

I don't seem to have any issues with my Moose Racing handguards. The only problem I had was with the brake light switch which extended the banjo bolt on the front brake reservior (which I had to remove to fit the guards).

Here's some pictures of my setup (bad ones I know cause its pretty dark in my garage). I tend to have my levers set a bit low and the guards straight whic from my understanding of your question should make things worse, but it seems to be fine for me:
