Question Original Yamaha handguards. Where?

This is a tricky item to find right now. Prices start from €145 shipped. Anyone has any tips on where to get them cheaper?

I'm in Sweden and choices here are almost non existent. I'm looking into the OEM because I want to keep the bar weights.

This may not be relevant but here goes...I filled my bars with silicone to dampen the vibes after I removed the bar end weights with no problems..I fitted generic ebay ones for under £35

I gave up and ordered the, way overpriced, OEM handguards from kfm-motorraeder, Germany. I’m afraid their price will just keep on getting higher after manufacturing stopped.
At least now I get to keep the weights and have the option for the extra Acerbis Rally Pro spoilers, if needed.

How was the silicone mod? Easy? Did it make a noticeable difference?
Might do it anyway if it helps further with the vibrations.

I used cheap silicone with a length of tube on the nozzle as a 'needle' and then filled the bar from both ends.
It cost less than £3.00 and tbh I dont notice any vibes..but I have learnt to have soft hands on the bars.
