PostSubject: Hand shields from Givi   Mon Oct 29, 2018 3:20 pm

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..
Pics are on the silver wing 600 FB page.

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.
