Flip the mounts over.... you have them on upside down. They are supposed to go under the controls.
BTW: I have used hand guards for years, absolutely love them for cold weather riding, especially if its raining. Even better is when you slide a set of "grip muffs" over them, it lets you wear summer gloves when it's wet and cold, as long as you have heated grips.
ok, I tried to mount them under the bars, didn't work. They hit the bottom of the controls. The problem that I am having is that the mount is not long enough to get in front of the levers.
Any help would be appreciated.
Humm...well, mine are specific to the right and left side and they position the hand guards at a slight angle so they clear the levers. Try swapping sides and see if that helps. If not, try another kind. Mine were 19.99 at Cycle gear and they fit great. Although mine hit on the throttle side, it took about 5 seconds on the bench grinder to reshape it to fit.
Ok, think I have it now. Got them mounted up, though in order for them to up high enough on the throttle side, the throttle cables have some stress on them when turned full left. Tried routing the lower cable below the brake lever, didn't work. I will have to ride it and see how it goes.
