    Great Handguards

    Posted by Steve on 13th Aug 2018

    Bought the Barkbusters to fit to my Honda Crosstourer to replace the flimsy factory items. Much better.
    Fitting was fiddly, but worth the perseverance.

    Robust handguards

    Fitted these to a Kawasaki Versys 1000. A little fiddly to get the angles of the brackets all lined up when fitting but persevere for a while and the end effect is great. Rained a few times since installing and gloves have stayed dry. Excellent product

    Fits great

    Posted by Unknown on 9th Aug 2017

    I mounted this on a 2005 DL650, and it fits just fine. The mounting process is a bit fiddly, but an extra set of hands helps. Had some small issues to prevent the handguards from touching the front-brake pump, but it was ok.

    Heavy Duty Handguards

    Easily fitted once the internal weights are removed, be careful with aftermarket screens as the guards may need a slight adjustment to miss. Substantial once on and look great.
