Ever since I got the bike I have loathed the ugly fork boots on my S model. Of course I don't want to spend $500+ converting to SM forks strictly for looks. I'm sure many of you feel the same way. I also don't care for how the Fork Sox look. I saw the ktm blade style mod, but can't find those for sale anywhere. So I ran across this picture on here from 2009 a dude used SM fork guards on his S. He only posted one pic tho, no explanation or anything. So I decided to try it myself. Behold, the finished product To my surprise it actually fit right up. I got UFO ones and all I had to do was pop out the little metal bushings they had shoved in the hole. Then the bottom bolt from the bottom triple tree clamp went right in, just had to drill one more hole for the top and Dremel a little bit of plastic away to make room for the head of the bolt. And it mounted right up. I'll post some more pics below of the process. Also it has two more holes on the front of the guard, I put a zip tie thru one of those on the speedo cable side, and went around the bottom clamp to hold it in place. The brake hose side, I just bent the top brake hose guide against the guard and that's holding that side in place. I removed the lower white brake hose clamp because it was getting in the way when the forks compressed. Then I bent a little piece of aluminum into shape and used that as the brake hose guide, I still need to paint it black. Obviously since these fork guards are on the opposite side they're intended to be on(since they're upside down) the brake hose guide mount is now on the speedo cable side. I think I'm going to try to utilize that as the speedo cable guide and get rid of the ugly white one. And of course before mounting the fork guard you have to screw into place the little fork guard guide, I put that right below the biggest bulge at the top of the lower fork, it's not made to be on something that big in diameter but it does work. In my opinion this looks 100x better and is also more functional than the fork boots. Just thought I'd leave this here because I don't want to be greedy with this:) I've never seen it done before other than that one guy in 2009 so I figure most of you haven't thought of it either and would maybe be interested in doing it yourself.
