My previous Ctx was bought with handguards already installed. They were the cheapo type from China.. I was less than impressed with them after the mirror support bolt let go at 75mph..

Decided to look for something sturdier for my touring swing.

Remembering the brake reserve/mirror mount of the Ctx, I purchased the Givi 1111 labeled for the nc700x.

Only issue I had with the installation was this. The nc700x has a longer handlebar weight vs the swing.. The bolt going thru the weight and into the handlebar was too long.

According to the Givi paperwork, the bolt was M5 80mm. I measured the bolt at Home Depot and it measured more like 65mm. Figuring what I needed to subtract then find a replacement bolt became much too daunting..
Instead I added three nuts to the bolt.. Installed BEFORE the rest of the Givi hardware. The nuts were then painted black using touch up rust oleum paint pen from auto zone. I also applied this to some areas where the paint was scratched (base of brake reservoir and the mirror mounts)
Worked like a charm and I am quite happy with them!
I've ordered a second pair to install on my commuting swing..

Good work. Useful info. Now you can extend your riding into colder temps.

Update:
Waited to install these on the other swing until I could figure out the proper bolt length.

I used a m6 50mm bolt and it worked like a charm.  Gonna wait for warmer weather to slather some black touch up paint on the ends, in addition to the mirror posts.

I found the longer bolts (see original post) managed to catch the wire from my Gerbings jacket/ gloves.

Both swings now have mirror extenders and Givi handshields.  

The handshields do make a difference while riding in 30 degree weather.  I can use the 12v wired Gerbings gloves without an outer glove.  Easier on the wrists and quicker to don.
