Thumbs up SXS BURLY Handguard shields / KTM Perch Mounts

I have always been a fan of handguards. For Moto or Trail.
The OEM GasGas Perch Mounts for the 18s and 19s are ok, but personally not a fan of how the shields mount to the perch mounts (broken several shields).

The KTM perch mounts are much beefier, and have a better mounting system for the shields that is sturdy.

Since the purchase of my 2018 Enduro 300GP I have been riding much more trails cause the bike works so well for them. Do not like full wrap around barkbusters, but SXS has an option to get the strength of a wrap around, but have an escape for you arms for crashes (made of their skidplate material). They mount right up to the OEM KTM and Husky perch mounts, and also have an option for Flexx Bars.

KTM mounts will fit 2012-2019 EC XC GP with Magura and Nissin combo with just a slight mod to the brake side. Different bolt and a small spacer bushing and you are good to go.

Oh, and the ARC Composite levers are the best lever on the market for the GasGas bikes handsdown.

Those are beefy but I could still see your hand getting smashed if you clipped something at speed. The full wraparounds have saved my fingers on more than one occasion even here in the AZ desert.

They look thick but the mount looks like it will let the guard pivot and crush your hands. I agree that full wrap arounds offer the best protection.

I like this. I just recently ditched my full wraps and love the new found freedom of movement and less clutter on my bars. @MotoCenterGasgas, did you have to purchase the perch mounts separately?
