Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved This New Rider I'm a new rider and when I heard about engine guards I knew that I had to have one. On my first ride out I hesitated when making a sharp left turn. Instead of my bike falling completely over, it slowly started to go and then stopped. My feet never left the ground and my butt stayed on the seat. I was easily able to right the bike and be on my way. Not even a scratch anywhere! I feel much more comfortable with this engine guard and am no longer anxious about how I'm going to pick up my bike if I drop it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Fit & Finish I Installed this engine guard on my 2014 Superlow 1200T. The installation was a breeze and in my opinion the guard looks very nice. I wanted the guard primarily so I could add highway pegs since the bike comes with mid-controls. I was a little concerned about how it would look on a Sportster, but since the bike already has the hard bags the engine guard does not stick out like a soar thumb. The chrome finish is excellent and installation consisted of 4 bolts and 4 washers. Some Sportsters might have their horn mounted where the top bracket goes but the Superlow 1200T does not so that made my installation that much easier.

what is the diamiter of these bars

Asked by: vsnetzinger

Will this work with Forward controls?

Asked by: Rebecca
Hi Rebecca, In looking at one of many Standard Forward Control Kits for the Sportster and the Engine Guard Kit, there should not be a problem with adding a forward control. However, I would recommend you going to a local H-D dealership to verify which forward control will work with your bike and if that particular forward control will work w/ the Engine Guard Kit you are referring to. Thanks!

Will this ever be offered in black (in addition to chrome)?

I would love to have black instead of chrome.....thanks.
Asked by: rchasexji
Hi rchasexji, Unfortunately, the Engine Guard Kit is only available in Chrome for the 2014 1200T SuperLow. We have a black Engine Guard, but it will only accommodate other XL models--not a XL1200T. Thanks!

If I purchase an engine guard for my 2014 xl883l sportster, will I be able to put forward controls on it later?
