Hand guards for Pro Tapers?

6 posts in this topic

I just put on some Pro Taper Windhams as per everyones recommendations, but now my Moose aluminum hand guards don't fit?! They are made to fit the 1-1/8" bars, so why don't they fit these new bars? Any hand guards you guys can recommend that'll fit these bars?

Thanks.

Cycra Pro Bend hand guards fit. Order the guards separate, and then a bar clamp kit specific to PT's

Note that there is now a clamp for Pro-Taper bars up to '07, and another for '08 and onward. That's the year the bars were made, not the bike.

+1 I have them and love them! Best part is no need for "Unbreakable" Levers!

Thanks guys. How do I know what year my bars were made? When I looked at that link it did specify the 07/08 clamps. Do I just want the one marked 1-1/8"?

Thanks.

The listing isn't really too clear, is it? You'll need either the 12-3130 or the 12-3133, as far as I can tell. What I'd recommend is to call the TT store toll free and ask for some help ordering them. I have the 3130 on mine.

Because there are so many different bends of bars, the guards don't always fit perfectly on everything. Mine required a little twist here and there with a vise and a Crescent wrench, but once I got them where I wanted them, they've been a tough player on many encounters with gravity.

My main deal with running them is to keep my fingers from being crunched by the levers when I go down, and in that, they've been perfect. I have no idea how many times they've saved a set of grips or a throttle tube, but this last set of grips was the first one I've actually worn out with my hands in quite some time.
