Installation of hand guards for Faired DCT - with pictures.

NYC public garage is filthy, bike is dirty in order to blend into environment... yeah right.
Hand guards were like $15 on Ebay...

They really do look nice and the mounting looks like it was made for the CTX. Any chance of a link?

Nice!

With the exception of the seat, backrests, hand guards, windshield, cases, GPS holder, and exhaust, your bike looks exactly like mine.

I just bought a set for $14.99 to try out. Cant beat the price. Wish they came in clear instead of tinted to match my clear Cee Bailey. If nothing else, I may use the mounting system on a set of custom wind deflectors I've been working on.

Nice foam grips, too. How big a hassle to change them? I have some soft grips, but fear the mess of changing them.

These just slip on. No mess. Most use hairspray or soap and water. Highly recommend them if you find the OEM grips too thin or uncomfortable.

@ nick13
good job, I guess you got the screw out of the left bar end
the listing says they connect only to the bar end but you say mirror also
can you elaborate on that? you make a second mount?
maybe a pic of where it attaches to the mirror?
Edit-nevermind, I saw the mirror end in the listing pics

metal is usually found in the handgaurds used on adv or dirt bukes where they are much more likely to fall over by virtue of were/how they are ridden. The extra protection of brake and clutch levers is worthwhile.
I think plastic for us is about all we need unless a lot of off road riding will be done.
You could probably get Moose Racing, Barkbusters or a similar brand to work if lever protection is needed.
