I can't get all of your pics to open up but I think that's more on my end that yours. So, I caveat that in case my suggestion has already been tried...

But, the brake lever, switch cluster and brake resevoir are moveable. Try moving them up and down some to make things work.

My other caveat is that there might be a pin on the throttle that pokes into a hole on the bar holding it where it is. It seems I had to break that off to make things move where I wanted them to (it was quite some time ago).

I installed Barkbusters on my Gen1. And they fit, as long as you are willing to bend things a bit.

FWIW - I have storms on my 2011 now. they came in a box with the bike when I bought it 3+ years ago. I tried unsuccessfully at least 3 times to mount them up. They just didn't fit right. Then one day I was literally staring at them thinking, "I am not this dumb damm!t"!!!! Turns out I was that dumb. The previous owner had gone so far as to attach the shields to the bars. I had never questioned if they'd put the correct ones on each side. I swapped them.. bindo-bango-bongo! Like Steve Guttenberg in Police Academy, "It fits! Damn thing fits".

storms just about fit anything. they only attach to the handlebar at the end only. its a 1 piece design, super simple.

Maverick9611, You mean Storm S7's ( like you mounted) only attach to the Outer End of the handlebar.

The Original BarkBuster Storms anchor both ends of the aluminum beam to the handlebar for added strength.

The single mount of the S7 could more easily pivot up or down in an incident & more easily expose the hand lever to potential damage. The double ended mounting of the originals will resist pivoting out of position 'quite fiercely'.

Maverick9611 and all readers,
I just spotted something on the Revzilla BarkBuster Storm S7 single-end Mount hand guard link. They have been Dis-Continued!

I don't remember seeing that notice in the top left a mere 2 days ago. https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/...aded-bars-2018
