Hi MJB. I had the same issue when fitting hand guard extenders - the correct size bolts weren't supplied and the originals were too short. Thankfully a local hardware store had longer replacements.

Same for me and I used a Dremel to 'adjust' the fittings.

Can you still lock the bars with that TFT screen cover ? and handguard extensions ?

I can only speak for the screen cover/cap. I could full-lock to the right, but turned to the left resulted in brake fluid reservoir hitting the cap. I dremelled it down to get full-lock. However, adjusting brake lever position for a more standing preference results in the reservoir again hitting the cap (ever so slightly, but I don't want to take any more plastic off). I'm waiting on some 20mm (or so) extenders to solve the problem.
As for the fear of falling...learn to love and cherish the experience. You want it. You need it. You can't wait for the next hit.

Engine bash plate  at 57 euro from Aliexpress.
Very happy with it. High quality , perfect fit, easy to mount. Less expensive I have found on Aliexpress, Amazon, etc..

Anyone bought the bar extenders from AliExpress? Any issues and what size did you go for?
