Handlebars handguard

I just bought a 2017 klr. I am in the process of making mods and wondering what handguard to use. I want something to protect the levers, that looks good, and don't really want to start grinding the handlebar etc. Do you all know of something that would fit without trouble?

Thanks in advance.

PS: I am also looking at buying a seat, and crash bars.

I bought SW-MOTECH Kobra Handguard kit and the tear drop bar ends by bark buster. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to say where I got them, but revzilla had a great deal and delivered fast.
I put them on with my daughters as a day project. The clutch lever does touch the aluminum so I'm going to put a washer in to give that 1mm space it needs.
Oh, and they cut down the wobble at 80mph.
hope I was helpful.

I'll second Damocles's TUSK suggestion. They don't look too bad, and they look even better once they get "worn in". Installation is easy-peasy, too.

Tusk DFlex handguards. wrapped the bike around a tree. Handlebars hit first and hard. Bent the handlebars but no damage to brake lever. Rode it out.
SW Motech crashbars. They just work ... and they look good too.
