Versatile full-wrap handguards that blend tough obstacle protection with moderate weather coverage.

Specifically designed for bikes with long brake and clutch levers, including most street and adventure-touring bikes.

  • Hardened aluminum, full-wrap backbones with two-point mounting hardware
  • Appropriate for both street, adventure and trail riding
  • Available with black, blue, green, red, yellow, silver, orange, white, or pink plastics
  • Variable Height Wind Deflector Extensions are included to provide extra wind protection

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.

Need more wind protection? All VPS Handguards are compatible with the Barkbusters Storm plastics, giving you maximum protection from the elements and a reinforced backbone. Storm plastics are less suited to tight off-road singletrack use and are not compatible with supermoto skidplates or wind deflectors.

I saw the reviews the guys posted with their weird set ups on their bikes and how they gave them 4 stars, so I had to write a real review. I installed a set on my CRF250L May 2013, after bending the stock bars and replacing with Renthal RC High bars. I had no problem putting them on, they make the bike look so much better, the plastics match the Honda red perfect, and they're rock solid. This bike has taken a beating in some serious off roading crashes, tree smacks, and even a road crash, and the bars never bent (they took some good hits). Now, last month (May 2015) I really wrecked my bike hard on a rock path, so this time the bars finally bent. But the Barkbusters were fine and bolted right back onto the new bars with no problem. After my best friend broke his handguards, we upgraded to these bad boys on his KLR250F and boy did they really make his bike look a lot better. Buy these with confidence!

Oh and if you've ever taken a motorcycle course through the MSF (Motorcycle Safety Foundation), chances are every bike there had Barkbusters on it. There's a reason for that. (Posted on 6/17/15)

The clearances for the 2009 stock bar are very tight. The Kaoko kit as shown in the order form and described in the packed instructions show a bar end weight. The weight is not included! These fit well on the stock threaded bar when combined with the Barkbuster handguards. The threaded end means you do not need the expansion fittings. The stock bars have a 1/2 inch threaded extension past the end of the grips. When using the Barkbuster hand guards the extension shows on the left side while it is covered on the right with the Kaoko kit. It fits fine, but leaves an unfinished look. I used a piece of black pipe on the left to fill the gap for a better look. Everything would install better on aluminum aftermarket bars.
Consider getting the bar end weights. (Posted on 3/21/15)

The pictures in the product display has no clutch or front brake levers. The instructions are not KLR specific and mostly didn't apply. I guess it's a KLR handlebar in the pic? But the factory handlebar has a 'D Ring' or wire loop on the clutch side, that wires and the choke cable reeve thru, IN THE WAY of clamping onto the bar, below the crossbar, so I bent mine. There wasn't the 2 LONGER bolts needed to use the existing Kawasaki weights with the Barkbusters. I tried everywhere to find those, no luck. Prolly if you buy the $50 weights offered? So I ended up using 1 each 1/2" spacer of the matching diameter between the barkbuster rib and the handlebar end, on each side, total 2 needed. To far away from the center of the bar, the clamp ends up on top of where the crossbar meets or too close in offsets the alignment of that clamp to where the rib is too low below the lever, even if you reverse the 2 sides, flip right to leftside instead. There is a very narrow spot to where all this will work. Thats why only 4 Stars. (Posted on 10/22/14)
