What he said, it's definitely easier if you don't have the hand guards to fumble around.Or, you could put the whole thing together (recommended) and then insert it in the bar and tighten. That way there is no "hoping" it catches, it is already attached and you don't have to fish loose bits out of the handlebar (again) if it doesn't catch. Tighten it just enough so that it is just snug to insert and it will tighten right away, no spinning.
