Call for Availability


Maximum wind and rain protection for street and adventure-touring motorbikes! Includes some parts specifically for this model.

Storm handguards have an aerodynamic design and a larger profile that wraps around the hands to offer excellent wind and weather protection. The wide profile is great for street riding and open trails. Storm Full-Wrap Backbone with two mounting points, this is the strongest backbone available, and is recommended for dual-sport and adventure touring bikes.

Barkbusters handguards were first manufactured in 1984 and now have over 28 years of motorcycle industry experience and riding enthusiasm. That history means Barkbusters has what it takes to produce the finest handguards available on the market today. Barkbusters integrates a hardened aluminum backbone with a stylish, replaceable plastic guard to create a truly functional handguard. No more busted levers or knuckles! In the unlikely event that you break a part of the handguard, every piece is replaceable.

Includes all bike-specific hardware for mounting on the BMW R1200GS LC.

Please note: BB.B66 barend weight kit is not compatible with this mounting kit.

Buy these to replace the cheap plastic stock hand guards that come on many bikes. These protected my F800GS several times when it went down. The plastic holds up well and are cheap to replace compared to the SW Motech $100 replacement plastics. (Posted on 4/25/16)

Better wind coverage, better hand protection and stronger. Look great. What's not to like? (Posted on 3/26/16)

Installation is a snap. Very easy to replace the cheap plastic stock handgurds that come with the 2013 Bmw GS1200. All the replacement hardware is hex instead of torx. I'm not sure why companies do this, barkbusters is not the only one. It's not that big of a deal I guess but almost every fastener on the water cooled gs1200 is torx. It's always better to carry less tools to do roadside repairs so I wish the replacements were torx also. These Barkbusters are MUCH more robust than stock as they are basically a molded aluminum bar. Anyone who has ridden off-road has probably used these before, if they're smart. Definitely a worthwhile investment for your safety and the safety of your levers. The storm plastics have good coverage for wind and rain also. (Posted on 3/3/15)

One off-road drop of my 2014 R1200GS-W with the flimsy OEM units was enough to convince me to install some real hardguards. After reading some on-line forum reviews, Barkbusters seemed the unanimous choice. Including removal of the OEM units, installation took only about 15 to 20 minutes and the fit was excellent. I had to slightly loosen both the brake and clutch reservoir handlebar clamps to fit the Barkbuster clamps, but that was a simple step. The aluminum Barkbuster backbones are very solid, and the Storm plastic guards provide much better protection than the smaller OEM units. They're about an inch wider on either side of the handlebars than the OEM units due to their mounting design. There is the chance that the right handguard can touch the GS-W windshield adjustment knob at full left steering lock, but the set-up can be easily adjusted to fix that. These are a must-do upgrade in my book if you intend on doing any off-road riding with this great bike. (Posted on 12/22/14)
