Give your hands and levers a break with Barkbusters Storm S7 wind and weather protection handguards for 6mm or 8mm internal threaded handlebars. These guards are designed to provide you comfort when riding in the elements or through narrow trails where brush can scrape up your hands or whack your levers. When you mount these motorcycle handguards for wind protection on your bike, you will also enjoy not being pegged in the fingers with rocks and branches. Oh, and they look cool.

Installation took all of 15 minutes and they fit perfectly on the Ninja. After a few hundred cool, damp miles I can say they do exactly what I needed them to do - keep that cool damp wind off my hands. My preference is thin deerskin gloves but they simply aren't reasonable here much of the year, even with grip heaters. These deflect the cold wind and dampness enough to allow using these gloves.
I also like the single ended design. Strong enough for all normal use but they'll break away before breaking your arms if there's an accident. (Posted on 2/29/2016)

My one issue for TT is that the S7 handguards don't seem to show up on the webpage when I filter by Handguards or Barkbusters. I initially ordered the S5 model, which didn't fit my bike. TT support was very helpful and got me on the right track, however! (Posted on 11/13/2015)

Some interference at extreme lock however as the S7s don't have an inner bracket they just flex out of the way so no concerns there at all. Contact is minimal as well.
Very high quality product and very pleased with them. 15 minute install once you identify the right length bolt to use - everything in the kit you need though. You do loose the stock bar ends using these but there is still a fair bit of weight for the fitment kit so no concerns about bar vibration being any worse, not that this is an issue on the FJR anyway in my experience.
