    Hi all. I am trying to work out if it is possible to fit barkbuster type hand guards to my AT 650 1988.

    My AT xrv650 1988 is riding merrily but i just met an AT 750 owner. Surprise! At 100k/hr (60mph) the 750 is revving at 5000, mine the 650 at 3500. The 650 sprockets are standard 16/49. Anybody who knows if this is ok?
