Hand guards and risers.

Super adventure hand guards. They will only go on with short levers and you have to cut a slot in for the brake line, I tried and couldn't get it out the way.

Like the hand guard fit up. Shame they need shorty levers though.

I've got some cheapo extenderbubble ones on. Almost full length tbh. But the stock ones definitely too long.

I tried raising my handlebars, but found the lines to be under a lot of tension.

Have you had any issues with lines being too short at all?

None at all. They could go even higher theirs that much slack in everything. I have got them pulled back towards the tank btw.

Put my ROX handlebar risers on last night, worked perfectly!

And just ordered the same black plastic handguards off a 1290 adventure.

Thanks for the info!

Ciao, here my solution.... China version of BMW GS/XR handguards (30/40€ on AliExpress or eBay).... some mods to handlebar weights and mirror attachments are required but they definitely fit and stay firm, working well in this winter.
That's my final solution with a radical turning work on lathe made for the dedicated handlebar weights.

Looks good Massimo! They are much better style than the KTM guards 8-)

Heaps cheaper than my Acerbis guards....... but I don't have a lathe so i can't do quality mod work like you.
