Great hand guards, fit great and super strong. Dropped the bike 3-times since installing and the haven’t moved or bent. I did see a few reviews stating that they don't match up with the bars, I did have to bend the ends just a little to get a nice flush attachment with the mount, but that is expected with any handguard since all bars are different.
First off, this is my first purchase with Rocky Mountain ATV/MC. I ordered the Tusk D-Flex Pro Hand-guards for my 2008 KLR 650, which was recommended by their website. My first test fit, I noticed that these will not work with the KLR handlebars. My first correspondence with customer service was to determine which of their handlebars were these hand-guards designed to fit. I thought no problem, easy fix... nope... after several days of emails and online chatting, they could not tell me and only said that they are universal. I know for a fact that these were designed to fit someones bar to come up with the design. So then I proceeded to request a refund, but I was told that since I installed them there was no refund. I corrected them as I did a test fit and not a full install, but they would not budge. I then was requested to send them pictures of the test fit to see if tech support could help. I sent the pictures showing that they would not work with the stock bars. I was again told that I would have to bend], fabricate cut to make them fit as they were "universal". I kept asking, then why are they listed to fit a KLR G2. I've been doing everything they have asked for 2 weeks and still I can not mount the hand-guards to my KLR G2. This is the worst customer service experience I have ever felt with. I now have to file a dispute with my credit card company over a refund that I should have received, as now it's my only option. I have no problem returning them, I just want my money back so I can buy some that do work on my KLR G2.
Can be a little tricky in the fitment department, but is is a Universal item, so each bike is different. Had to make it fit with the Pro Taper ATV High bard on the KLR, but they look good, and are strong. Should serve me well and protect my hands.
Feel far more confident with these bad boys attached to guard my hands than the wimpy stock ones. Love that it curves around to give full protection. It's a little tight on my front brake side, but nothing a small adjustment can't fix.
The aluminum is a bit long for my 1999 Honda CR250R. I had to put one side under the cross bar and the other side on top of the cross bar. The cross bar is on a bit of an angle. Its not that big of a deal, but had I known that, I would have ordered a different brand. But they look good and I think they will give good protection.
You always hear "you get what you pay for", but with Tusk products I feel you get much more for your dollar. I put the Tusk hand guard set on my KLR and have been very happy. They have taken abuse from a few falls and an occasional tree, showing some scratches, but never bending. My hands and levers have always been protected. That's what their for, right? No need for more expensive big name brands. These work great.
Reason 1 star, have to to submit. Product not deserving. Anyone looking for some installed never used tusk pro hand guards? ??
Garbage. Does not fit 2018 wr250r. Left side fits as it should but right side is impeded by the reservoir line. I dont believe theres a way to install incorrectly. 3 options- 1- rotate the brake too far down 2- rotate the guard far too high 3- flip the bar mount upside down and its pretty spot on just looks super clowny.
I buy this for my yz250x but didnt fit my woods bars (shorter). They fit full lengt bar with no problem so i swap them over my drz and install my barkbuster on the woods bike. They are heavy and look durable, perfect for dual sport or adv. If you want lightweight maybe skip...
I bought these as the Tusk Dflex Pros. I have several bikes and I've gone through several different sets of handguards. I've done a ton of research on what makes a set good vs bad. The two I've settled on are the Cycra Pro bends and these, with these being much less expensive. There are two main key points that make a good set of handguards good.
1. the bar needs to be hard enough to resist easy bending. The cheap ones from ebay have the full solid bar inside, but it is not strong aluminum and bends easily. The bar on the tusks is thicker and much better quality aluminum. I don't ride bikes because I'm good at it. My bikes spend their fair share of time on the ground. These Tusk bars are surprisingly strong!!
2. The clamp mount that attaches to the bar needs to be solid. Cheaper guards come with a mount that has a little swivel built in. They are horrible. You cannot tighten them enough to stay put and they will swivel on even the lightest of impacts causing your handguards to move. That's bad. You need clamps with a non swivel mount. Tusk does sell them, and I have bought them, but the ones included with these handguards are even bigger/stronger than the ones Tusk sells separately.
These are the absolute cheapest DURABLE handguards that I've found anywhere. I currently have them on 2 of my 4 bikes and absolutely love them.
Love these...For the cost you get a solid setup. i'm always running through the dessert of forest and bushes, branched and the like pop up and in the past i would get my knuckles whacked, but not now. Or when i go down and my hand doesn't bounce off the ground. Also, no more bent or broken brake, or clutch levers.
I've even been able to install these on the Fasst Company flexx bars. You will need the Fasst mounts to attach to the bars if you run this set.
This was my first attempt to installing full coverage hand guards on my Drz400s. They fit perfect and are extremely sturdy. I have smaller flex levers but have no doubt they would also clear the stock larger levers as these have a ton of clearance. I was told ( by forum websites) that the Drz400s needed side mounted triple clamp handlebar mounts to clear levers and brake master cylinder. Not true as these fit great. Highly recommend!
