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 have been riding 30 miles each way to my work this week ,Last week in March. Still cool temps and the Barkbusters kept my hands out of the wind totally. (Posted on 4/6/16)

Installed perdectly on a stock 05 V-Strom 650. Took me about an hour to install as I had to move a few things on the bars and get the inboard links oriented correctly. These are some really nice handguards and I can see why they cost over $100. All of the hardware fit perfectly, although I spent some time dry fitting all the parts as the inboard linkage assembly is kinda like a puzzle to get everything to fit just right. The VPS guards are good for some hand protection but if you ride in the cold and don't have grip warmers get the Storm guards. I kinda wish I got the Storm guards but come summer it won't matter. They are certainly adequate hand protection and the mounting hardware is beefy. (Posted on 2/3/16)

The perfect finishing touch to my make over project. A past TT project bike provided the inspiration for the bumble bee look. With all the performance mods done just the cosmetics were left.
The Givi engine guard and rear rack really pop.
The whole package really turns heads. (Posted on 1/9/16)

Bought these for a 2009 WeeStrom because it fits. Had tried something else but it didn't clear the brake reservoir. These cleared both through clutch and brake levers without modification. Haven't tested these out yet but should work fine. I have a set on a DR650 and those have survived all sorts of abuse. (Posted on 9/4/15)

Bought them as a fun upgrade, they are a bit of a challenge to put on, (made easier thanks to a YouTube video on how to remove existing handlebar innards) But they fit really well, are strong and sturdy, and look great. (Posted on 8/11/15)

Got these to replace the stock hand guards on my 2014 V-Strom Adventure which are plastic and basically useless. Easy install, good fit. One star off for the big white Barkbusters text. I sprayed it black. (Posted on 11/14/14)
