They are now..meant to update this but..bad day yesterday.
Circlip from the site bought them,could not collect them straight away as he was busy and paid cash on collection so until that point I was just holding them...it was not yesterday as I was out all day...later than expected due to the following :-

For anyone who may use a Kovix disc lock,be aware that the slightest tap on the side of the lock where the barrel is will stop the lock from retracting the pin and you are stuck...I was for five hours yesterday and the recovery guys are not allowed to used angle grinders.
100% respect for the AA guy who did everything to get that lock off,he was a biker so that may have inspired his efforts.

Dont underestimate the Ducati Desert Sled, I had one and it rides well, decent suspension and engine power and looks good, it got lots of looks anywhere I parked up.
My pal now has one and he rates it.

If you cant source them or the wait is too long, BHG-074-00-NP do fit as I have them on my 19my and the 20my bars are the same
No interference with screen or fairing plastics, my screen is in standard position.

The outer fittings may fit as bars are 22mm at the end..19/20 model years taper from 28mm at the centre but maybe at the point where the inner clamps fit they taper enough..
Did you or the dealer select the kit fir your order? If they did I would unpack and try.
If you chose the kit number you probably should send back.
Earlier than 19/20 model years had 22mm bars with quite a rise in comparison.

Another TT fan here,I used to have a TT600 until some cooking fat nicked it.
I'm tempted with a later TT 600 RE currently.

CB500X - General Chat / Re: Seat Concepts, or what else?

I have heard of Tony Archer, he has a good reputation.
There is a Preston company I have used a couple of times also, Bootleg Seats.
At the moment I have a Seat Concepts foam and cover and it's ok for nown.
I'm looking at a seat for my T7  at some point and the Seat Concepts one looks  interesting and I like the non slip finish.
No hurry right now though as just fitted a lowering link with the forks moved up through the yokes to experiment.
This knee injury of mine does not seem to be getting much better following two operations..
The CB500X is about right for now though...Tempted with a RR level one though...I'm easily tempted 🤭

Oh dear ...Spooky has had a humour bypass  :047:
Correct me if my eyes are failing me here but did you not begin by not giving adequate details in you search for advice ? Then shot down someone who just bothered to try and help, no matter in what way ?
Yup, that was a fail on both counts.
My head is, I can assure you, nowhere near anyones arse but I've figured out, and it was not difficult, where the authors head is and it's much closer to home 😉 which is fine by me as it has zero impact on me, crack on 🥴
