Hand Guards

Good Day!
Anyone got an opinion on the best, (cost/fit/looks/function) hand guards out there? My red 07 needs a left and I'd like some options other than just stock. Thanks, Rick

Rick, I've had the acerbis rally pro and I wanted more wind protection. So I finally went with what I should have done in the first place. I used the Maier aluminum hand guards $55 and the Maier hand shields $30. Maier also makes the new swivel mounts for the guards $30 which I may get later for a better fit. Google klrFAQ and read the entire page. Lot of good info.

+ 1 for the Maier's. Put them on my 08' and they were well worth the $.

I have an 06' and put on a set of Emgo guards. I think they were about $50 but have save my hands many times over.
