I purchased SKU# BB.BHG32.SBK to fit my 2009 R1200GS Adv. In addition, I also purchased the Handlebar-End Weights, SKU# BB.B66. This was all done in an effort to protect my hands & controls in the event of a lapse in judgment on my part by venturing into off-road areas that exceeded my meager skill set. I felt that the Barkbuster products offered the benefits that I was looking for. What I got was a bunch of spacers, adapters and compromises designed to fit every motorcycle under the BMW nameplate. I hate adapters and spacers almost as much as I hate hex socket flathead screws - and this kit has plenty of each. What I didn't get was any prior information that this kit would NOT! work with my existing Kaoko Throttle Lock, which just happened to be my first purchase from Twisted Throttle back in 2009 when I bought the bike new. Further research revealed that I could of course purchase a new Throttle Lock that would work with the Barkbuster kit for an additional $126.99 (SKU# KAO.KBB700-S) GREAT! but NO THANKS. As the owner of a completely equipped machine shop, I felt compelled to correct this injustice. I’m very happy with the results. I eliminated all of the unnecessary spacers and hex socket flathead screws. I can use my OEM bar end on the left side and my Kaoko Throttle Lock on the right. I feel with the added mass of the Handlebar-End Weights, the harmonic vibrations are reduced somewhat. I’ve got about 75 miles on the bike since the installation (weather has been cooperative in Michigan in December this year) and my left hand seems to be tingling less. The quality of the Barkbuster kit was average at best. Huge chatter marks were evident in the countersinks on the aluminum support bar. The “Storm” stickers on the handguards were poorly applied and had a large wrinkle on each side – they got peeled off and went in the trash. Zinc plated screws instead of the more corrosion-resistant Cadmium plating or better yet stainless steel (I know they are not as strong, but?). Overall, I can’t say I would recommend this kit unless you have access to a qualified machine shop or are willing to put up with too many adapters. (Posted on 12/20/14)
