Great quality. Fit perfect. The red plastic hand guards DO NOT match 2017 Honda crf250l red plastics. At all. Not pleased about that. If I had known I would have chosen plain white. In fact, wish I did. It would have looked a lot better. Other than that I would have given them 5 stars. Hope this helps someone. (Posted on 9/17/2018)

Placed on the factory stock handlebars with 1" risers on a 2107 Honda CRF250L Rally: 1.) Easy Installation 2.) Look Great 3.) Seems like they will Protect Well both for brush/limbs and a dreaded fall. These are a good upgrade for this bike. (Posted on 4/24/2018)

These seem like sturdy units. They installed quickly and went together easily. The only nit I can pick is that the colored plastic piece is held on with only a couple of sheet metal screws. I've got another brand of handguard on my other bike, and those have plastic pieces that clamp around the aluminum bar, which seems to be much sturdier. However, those plastic pieces shattered when I crashed, so maybe the screws on these Barkbusters is a better option. I haven't tested them yet... Overall, these seem like good quality hardware.

After trying a different brand for my DR that did not work I tried these and perfect fit. (Posted on 3/25/2018)

I have these on all of my dual-sport bikes. They have paid me back in unbroken levers many times. Also help keep the hands warm in colder weather. (Posted on 11/2/2017)

Install on the Klr required some modification to the handle bar cable bracket ,other than that is pretty straight forward. I like the lower profile of the vps and they look good on the bike but more importantly there really tuff and durable downed the bike several times last ride and bent the mirrors over but no damage to my levers. Would definetly recommend! (Posted on 10/17/2017)

I like the Barbusters for having that big and tough aluminum bar. The plastic in these kits isn't the best for wind protection, but I get them for the crash protection. Multiple tip-overs off-road and at most, the end of the aluminum gets a little scratched. Highly recommend for the protection. (Posted on 6/22/2017)

Put these on my DR350 recently. Been down a few few times with them and into a hillside pretty hard once with them. All scratched up now. No broken levers or fingers. Very happy about that. The only thing I think could use improving is the boss that fits into the handle bars. Not quite deep enough to really square up with the bar ends. Fairly minor issue though, I have another brand (cheapies) on a different bike and the Barkbusters are much more durable. (Posted on 6/11/2017)

Instructions are lacking but can figure it out eventually.
The clamps onto the handbars comes very close to the crossbar support but can fit. The plastic ties for the electrical wires have to be removed to move the wiring out of the way. The metal loop that the choke cable runs through is also very tight to the clamp. I had to cut the loop so I could move the choke cable to give enough clearance to clamp to the handlebars. Alienment with the clutch and brake levers is a bit of a comprimize as it will depend upon where you prefer to set the angle of your levers in relation to the grips. Very tight fit when turning the handlebars to the max. either way as, depending upon your handlebar and lever set-up the barkbusters will hit the front fairing. Not good as the fairing is very expensive and will break during a crash.The antivibration weights on the end of the handlebars don't fit with the existing bolts and longer ones aren't provided. If you have anything else mounted to your handlebars( GoPro,GPS, temp.contoller, etc.)there may not be enough room for all. Rating based on lack of information about the limitations of the mounting. Haven't "tested" them yet but if I have too they do look sturdy enough to handle the crash. (Posted on 9/22/2016)

Received yesterday and installed this morning, in about an hour. Quite simple, even for a non-mechanically inclined person like myself, and seems as solid as I was hoping it to be. (Posted on 2/14/2016)
Review by Oathkeeper7
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 6/17/2015)
Review by KF7JA
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 3/21/2015)
Review by mike
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 10/22/2014)
