    Has anyone fitted handguard extenders to their 2020 bike? I guess it’s the 2016-2019 model?

    I collect my new bike next week and I’m looking for some recommended extenders.

    Thanks,

    Haha no, just risers to take the bars up and back. The bars seem quite a bit narrower than on the GSA though, which is not a bad thing!

    Ah...gotcha.

    I have a set if they're any good for you. I don't use them as with rasied bars, the horn presses against my tank bag when on full-lock.  I can sent some pics if needed.
    You will have to release the cables on the right side to get a bit of slack but other than this they're easy to fit.

    Thanks @baudbish. I’ll see how it goes on the ride home (60 miles) and the weekend in Wales (circa 1000) then come back to you if I think I need them 👍

    The GIVI ones look good (especially if you match the tint of your screen) and do give some extra protection, though
    I have heard they can be quite brittle if the bike goes over.

    I do like the look of the Givi, that see through bit looks tasteful.
