Thanks. Are they worth the money? They are a bit pricey.

Don't have them but I find the wind below the handguards cause fingers to get cold not the top. I'm looking to extend the bottom. These look like they just extend the top. Maybe someone who has them can say if they are worth it. I would probably put the extra money into a set of barkbusters which look bigger and actually protect the levers etc.

I bought the same ones for my TDM900, never fitted them, more form over function, looked nice but did not seem to sturdy to me, so I sold them on,
I dont know if the ones for the crosstourer are any more substantial, but they are the same style, so I would not consider some personally,
don't know if that helps

Steve, are you talking about the handguards or the the engine protectors?

Another option:

    Set of PUIG 6382N model R12 50 mm. Screw M12 (17 €)

    2 aluminium bushes. The aluminium bushes are made by a small workshop (15 €). NOTE: bushes on the pictures are modified.



    2 M8 screw 80 mm
    6 washers for M8  screws

They are made by Puig and in  the original video they are mounted in the wrong location. If you mount them as shown in the video and go down you will be replacing engine cases. These machined adapters look like the way to go. This stress pint is much stronger. I have the R&G racing bung sliders mounted and they are very functional.
