Got the VPS handguards with optional turn signals. Once properly installed (with a custom made wiring harness) they are a nice addition for wind and crash protection. The only problem is that the instructions are not clear in the way the inboard brackets fit around the brake/clutch master and hoses. If done properly everything should line up ok. I had to adjust the angle of my brake master to get it to work.

Fitting the turn signals was quite difficult. The drilling templates didn't line up nicely, and they don't quite fit flush to the guard. Still great for conspicuity! (Posted on 5/19/2018)

I bought these to keep my hands warm when I ride and to protect my hands. It kepted my hands warm but I was riding in mid 30's and decided I need heated grips too. They do the job and make the bike look better. Seem well built. Only issue is the instructions are lacking. (Posted on 1/14/2017)

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 2/3/2016)

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 1/9/2016)

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 9/4/2015)

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 8/11/2015)

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 11/14/2014)
