    Powerbronze hand guards

    Powerbronze say that their handguards do not fit the 2023 Ninja SX with the Kawasaki touring screen. I have a Puig touring screen, does anyone know if these will fit with the Puig screen?

    Not sure about the 2023 model, but on the 19 model with a Puig screen you won't be able to complete a full lock due to the screen shape which will stop it from happening. I had to use a heat gun to soften the plastic on the handguards and mold it with my hands so I could achieve a full lock.

    Hope these images help when it comes to visualising my explanation (Puig Screen and Power Bronze handguards)

    I don't think that I will do that. Hopefully someone else on here might have used a different make of guards that fit.

    I had an issue with them and the throttle.  Found that the lighter spring wasn't strong enough with them to shut the throttle when released.

    Clearance with a puig screen was fine, so ended up fitting the handguards from the versys 2020-23 ( part number: 999941135) and the brake and clutch are the same part number, then fitting 30mm mirror extenders to see over them :008:

    Hope that helps
