Barkbusters or alternate for 2018 DL1000 XT

Greetings. I am taking delivery of a new 1000XT and wanted to put Barkbusters on it like my 2016 Vee but they only make them for the DL XT through 2017. I suppose because of the handlebars? Any suggestions or has anyone fitted an alternate to the 2018 DL XT?

I have Tusk something or other fitted to my 2014 DL 1000. I had to fiddle around a little, a couple of flexible washers and large stainless washers on the inside mounts but they do fit and not too badly. (I used the plastic seals that go under roofing screws because that's what I had).

Measure your bars and give Barkbuster's a call I'm sure they will have something in their line up that will work.
