    Anyone know if the Africa twin and the Crosstourer use the same knuckle guards?

    Asking as pyramid plastics do guard extenders for the Africa twins stock guards... If they are the same they will also fit our Crosstourers..

    Hello Banksy,
    I have been looking at this and have found extenders made by Givi (#EH1110). They look very smart in smoked plastic. But on the Givi website they are only listed as for 12-15 models. I also have a 2018 Givi brochure which shows them as for  12-16 models. So it might be that Givi have not updated their fitment list because 2016 is the latest model?? The handguards on both the original and later Crosstourer look identical? I am plucking up the nerve to order in hope... I tried Givi for information but they don't know (or care!)
    Also Powerbronze make large replacements which bolt to the existing fittings. Not so smart but obviously give good protection.

    Im not sure if the AT knuckle guards will fit the CT.
    But since the CT guards are the same as on the Honda NC700X, there will be a chance it will, although the CT and the NC are both from 2012.

    As robinreliant said, Givi does have extenders for the CT, I have them fitted.
    I also looked at the guard partnummers for the CT between 2012 and 2016 models, and they vary, so no one will say for sure unless you have tried or measured. But i'm pretty sure they are the same.
    The barweight end side will fit it's only if the screwhole for mounting on the bar will be in the right place.

    Hello Superjeap,
    Can you tell me if your Givi extenders are fitted to a late (2016 onwards) CT please?

    I fitted the Givi extenders last week, I personally think they look quite smart.
    They probably double the wind protection without looking cumbersome!

    Once I change my screen to a tinted version they will blend together nicely.

    Hello,

    I would agree 100% with all the comments re the Givi protectors. However whilst they look great they are not that robust and are easily fractured. I used to commute to London daily and no matter how careful you are when filtering the slightest touch can damage them beyond repair.... Also if you were unfortunate enough to drop the bike they will not withstand that and can also take the original protectors and possibly mounting bracket(s) with them!

    I am a pretty cautious rider but went through at least a couple of sets before I switched to a pair of Barkbusters which are still attached to this day! They have a metal frame inside the plastic cover which does help in protecting your switch gear as they do not mount directly to them.

    The Givis are good looking though so for purely aesthetic looks I would, now that I have retired to West Wales, probably fit.

    Just my penny worth!

    Best regards,

    David :028:

    Thanks for the replys.. I did hear the Givi's can be fragile. I'm after more weather and wind protection so I've ordered the powerbronze guards which use the stock mounts.. Turning up tomorrow apparently.. will post pics when fitted.
