Since I ride my 650L to and from my local ORV park, I've been worried about dumping it and breaking either my clutch lever or front brake lever and having to ride it back home. (I've had to ride with a broken clutch lever before and it sucked! ) So, I decided to buy a set of real, metal-reinforced hand guards. I mounted them last night and shortened my levers so that they would have free movement. I rode my bike to work this morning (even though it was 22 degrees). My first impression is that there is not a lot of room for my hands. I'm a little concerned that now, if I dump it, I'm gonna get my hand stuck in there and maybe break a few fingers since my hands can no longer go out the side. Any comments or suggestions? Thanks!
