Question about Maier Hand Gaurds


I installed a pair of Maier Full Hand Gaurds on my bike and couldn't get them adjusted the same. When I measured them, I found that the right gaurd was 7 1/8" fron the top lip to the bottom lip and the left one was only 6 5/8". Is this normal?

If you buy the correct ones, they should fit just fine. The key is to get them with the ATV part number, and not the MX part number. The KLR technically has an ATV style bar.

I have the Maier Brush Guards and I had to go through the same problem when ordering them. I made sure the guy was in the correct catalog for those only.

If you can return them for the atvstyle guards. I have the motorcycle specific and they were a pain in the a** to get lined up properly. they also fit close to the controls which took some getting use to.
