Jim Patterson dual sport lightning

Hey Jim,

Could you post again the address of the picture of your now sold WR426 and tell us were did you purchase those "inside- the-handguard" flashers :). Or maybe these are just reflectors...? I had never seen some like yours

Thank you very much :D

These guards were a special model of UFO. I don't recommend them. They do not have an aluminum re-inforcing bar so the don't offer very good protection. Acerbis has a version that has the bar I believe, but the lens is not what I was looking for but the may be good for you. I changed to rally pro guards with Cycra plastic guards. I made my own front turn signals with some 2 inch wide aluminum stock (home Depot) and small side marker lights from Murrays auto mounted onto the aluminum. I attached them using the lower bolt of the upper triple clamp. They look good and are out of the way and protected.

Click on the URL below this post to see the original guards you asked about that were on my 426.

Thanks Jim,

Very helpful. In fact I already have the Baja kit + EE handguards. But my riding partner just bought a xr650r and we were trying to find what could be the best kit to turn his red beast into a "street legal" red beast. We think aluminium handguards are essentials so we won't choose what was on your now sold 426.

Thanks also to YZMAN400 for the info provided.
