acerbic vision
I have the white vision ones on my 2015 business mp3, I shortened and refashioned the bar mount, and trimmed the screen by about 1.5 inches either side for about 6 inches from the bottom so as to still enable the steering lock. Will try and post a picture

I used insulation tape to cover area to be cut, drew on tape with a marker pen where to cut, ensuring equality on each side, used a plastic cutting blade at slow speed in a power driven jigsaw, and went slowly. Also shortened the jigsaw blade so as not to damage underlying areas. I still need to polish the cut edges, otherwise with screen flexing, may cause mini cracking. Hope this helps.

On my MP3 500, I have used both the old style and new style handguards from a Suzuki V Strom 650. Both fit well with minimal modifications.

I believe there is a thread on this somewhere on this forum.

Checkout the MP3 topics spreadsheet. There's a number of links there for options on hand guards as well as other improvements.
Thanks for the link, and Thank You to whoever issued the permission to view... I have downloaded it, translated all the French to English so I could read it, fixed the grammar - THEN noticed that it had a total of 4 sheets to it !!!
The first sheet has a column named "Links" yet there are only about 5 links out of 164 items listed ... so I was kinda disappointed, then found the "Products" sheet - still only 18 links out of 22 lines - so still disappointed...
So, what I am going to do is insert those "Links" onto the Main sheet where they belong, and find any other of the MISSING "Links" I can, and insert THEM where they belong, remove any unnecessary comments, and make it available to the whole Forum when completed. That was a lot of work to start and compile to begin with, and I appreciate it. I will just be consolidating and providing Data integrity to the document, while adding the necessary missing data.
Awesome. no?
