    Thumbs up Special Priced Zeta Handguards with Integrated LED Turn Signals!

    Hey guys. I was able to work out a deal for my fellow FZ-09 forum members and I thought to myself, "Why not offer it to the bastards at BoRn as well?!"

    Anywho... The good folks at Moto-Heaven are reaching out and providing us with a sweet deal!

    They are offering us the Zeta handguards with integrated LED turn signals for $124.85 shipped!
    This deal is good until 12/31/13!.. would make a perfect Holiday present.

    To receive the forum deal simply follow these easy steps:

    1. Add your preferred ZETA XC FLASH PROTECTOR to the shopping cart.
    2. Add your preferred ZETA ARMOR HAND GUARDS Bend to the shopping cart.
    3. Enter "FZNINER" as the promotional code!
    4. Enjoy your sweet new handguards!

    I received mine today and will be installing them as soon as I have some free time!





    I'll post my install pictures soon!

    __________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ _______________________

    12/10/13 Edit: Soon is now! INSTALL TIME!

    Let's start with the obligatory "before" picture:


    The goodies that are about to grace the Niner!


    Tools needed: 8, 6, 5, 4 mm allen keys.


    Remove the stock bar ends.
    These bar ends are heavy-fuggin'-duty! An 8 mm allen key and some strength should get them off.



    These clamps are "idiot proof" - notice the "L" for left.
    The 2 "top" bolts are 5 mm and the one "right" bolt is 6 mm.



    While I'm here... might as well make me some ghetto shorty levers. They will have to suffice until I get a legit set of 434 Racer shorty levers.


    Test fit the bracket loosely.
    Try not to interfere with any existing cables.



    Follow along with me here!
    This is the hardware you'll be using for the bar end.
    Obviously I didn't show the handguard bracket here...
    If it's not obvious, the handguard bracket goes between the boltand the middle spacer.



    Just a little trick I learned from installing these before on the KLX: Add one rotation of electrical tape to help it from slipping when you tighten it later on.


    Loosely test fit again.
    *Notice my "ghetto shorty lever".



    That looks about right... Tighten it down if you're happy.


    One side installed.
    The plastic handguards use two 4 mm allen bolts to secure them onto the bracket.


    Obligatory comparison photo.


    !Very important! When installing the throttle (right) side, make sure to use the provided plastic "spacer"! It's supposed to prevent the throttle tube from sticking to the handguards.
    In my case, the throttle was as smooth as butter after the install.




    No worries... they're bright!


    Oh yeah!


    I don't know about you guys... but I love it.
    Last comparison picture... I SWEAR!

    Idk if you remember my KLX250... But I had both these handguards and bar end mirrors.

    Where there is a will, there is a way!

    Interested. But I wonder if I would be better off $ wise if I were to simply add lights to the existing hand guards? Suggestions?

    I like the idea of more visibility.

    <-------- This guy has been getting decently good at building custom LED circuits. Send me some pics of the front and back of your handguards

    Just heard from Phil @ Moto-Heaven and he mentioned they are willing to extend this deal to include the carbon fiber Zeta handguards as well!
