    Hi All,
    Hepco and Becker make really solid hand guard protectors -that go outside the end of the bar and shield the plastic if you topple/bike falls over. They fit 2012-2017 bikes according to the makers but as the DCT has the extra toggle switch I dont know if they fit.Mines a 2018 DCT -anyone know the answer/
    these are the rails -

    I like those but I'm just wondering if they will fit with the GIVI hand guard extensions I have fitted.

    Arthur the seller has confirmed that a full refund will be paid if they don't fit; he talked to Germany before emailing me back
    I have ordered and expect them after 22nd as a batch has to come from Germany -he also confirmed the price will be as listed.Suggest you buy at this price -on the same terms-in case they go up!

    You could be waiting a while, I ordered the H&B bash plate on the 28th Dec through the H&B UK site.
    Still waiting! I have been in touch and was told customs problems.

    Yes I expect that. I am selling stuff abroad as well as UK -and even 1st class Royal Mail rarely gets to its UK address withing a few days - Covid and red tape are messing up everything. You cant expect the EU to show its easy to leave their clutches-or a lot of other member countries might think its a good idea.!

    And there are probably quite a few that would be queueing up!

    my hand guards arrived this week-so a lot faster than I expected.no extra cost -despite new stock in from Germany.Will send a few photos but they bolt on the handlebar mounts and end -will nice stainless bolts and washers.The bikes a DCT but that wont affect the fit.
    the cost of £114 has gone up by a tenner now -but things never get cheaper!

    just a bit of advice.I bought these advertised up to 2017 models-mines a 2018.We chatted about it before I bought and all thought they should fit ok.Unfortunately the handlebar end weights must be hollow and threaded 8mm on earlier bikes-mine are solid so I either have to get the weights drilled and threaded -or try and source earlier weights .
    Can anyone confirm that earlier bar ends are drilled and tapped 8mm -or I am on the wrong track? got any to spare?
