Barkbusters Storm Handguard Kit Honda CB500X / NC700X /  XL1000VA Varadero /  Kawasaki Versys 1000 / Suzuki VStrom DL650

Maximum wind and rain protection for street and adventure-touring bikes!

Storm handguards have an aerodynamic design and a larger profile that wraps around the hands to offer excellent wind and weather protection. The wide profile is great for street riding and open trails. Storm Full-Wrap Backbone with two mounting points, this is the strongest backbone available, and is recommended for dual-sport and adventure touring bikes.

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. In the unlikely event that you break a part of the handguard, every piece is replaceable.

Easy to install on Suzuki '14 DL650 It can be challenging to find metal-reinforced, wrap-around hand guards (you know, actual hand guards, not windshields for your hands) that easily mate to the V-Strom's somewhat wonky bars. I was able to install these before work, with numb fingers, in about twenty minutes with nothing but the DL650's stock, rather minimalist, tool kit. Great wind protection, haven't hit tree limbs or taken a fall yet but they seem very robust. I'm certain my handlebar would yield before these Barkbusters would. I really appreciate the replacement bar-end weights that come with, since the stock ones have to be removed. Great product. November 30, 2014
Excellent product Works great to break the wind. Hands are a lot less frozen when I get home in the cold now. November 24, 2014
Guards are sufficiently strong and the covers are well finished. Instructions are correct in that it is recommended a technician be used for install. I took me a little over an hour to install. Wouldn't take 30 minutes if I had to do it again. Instructions were poor on how to get the brackets to line up so I had to try several combinations to get a secure fit. Also, had to readjust guards to a lower position than instructions gave because in tight turns they contact bottom sides of my windshield. Product does keep wind off hands. November 10, 2014
Well thought out product These things are nice, and at their price point are a no brainer. There is usually a hang-up at some point with any install, but these went on pretty easily with no tricks. I have not dropped the bike yet, but they seem very sturdy and also keep the wind and bugs off my knuckles. October 27, 2014
Nice product, instructions could be better Bought these for an NC700X. On the up side, they are very well made and the fit and finish is very good. The handlebar mounting mechanism (bar mounting piece) is pretty clever and it fits the bike well after a little work. I tried installing them two different ways, one using their bar end weights and then the OEM weights. I decided to stick with the OEM weights and attach the guards without removing the OEM set-up. Using their set-up caused a fair amount of vibration in the handgrips. I would have preferred if barkbuster had just provided me with a longer bar end screw and let me install it on the existing OEM set-up instead of trying to create their own mediocre system. However, that complaint aside, once they're on, it looks nice and should do the trick in the winter. September 12, 2014
Great product Fairly easy to install. Sting and we'll made. Providence good protection. August 11, 2014
Exactly what i wanted/needed installation was easy on my 2012 v-strom, we will see how they hold up. looks like a rugged product July 7, 2014
Tricky I put these on my 2012 vstrom and I had a heck of a time getting them to fit. It all finally worked out fine but following the directions didn't help. I ended up flipping them around and they finally went on and I had to swing the handlebars a little bit to keep the bar from hitting the dash. Only 3 screws hold each of the plastics onto the bar which surprised me. There is a mounting point for another set of screws that the vstrom version doesn't use for some reason. I was replacing the OEM right hand guard that broke easily on a drive way drop so these should do better. June 11, 2014

J G: Block the wind Dec 18, 2014
Scot B: top quality for a good price, need that extra protection for the winter wind and the summer ground :) Dec 2, 2014
Bruce E: I am a wimp, that gets cold fingers! I am assuming it works with Kaoko Throttle lock. Dec 2, 2014
FABIO G: The original DL-1000 V-Strom don't give effective protection. Great reviews on the internet Oct 30, 2014
Brock H: Best price and protection. Oct 18, 2014
Eric J: Recommended on multiple forums. Maximum hand coverage for those cold winter mornings and best protection in heavy traffic and just in case bike goes down, hand and hand control protection. Oct 17, 2014
Thane G: Have a broken brake lever, was broken when purchased the bike. Replacing the lever cost $88.62 and don't want to have to deal with ordering another lever in the future. Plus if I break the brake lever away from home would be in a bad spot trying to figure out how to ride the bike with no front brake. This product cost the same as other site, but get 5 zilla bucks and free shipping which the other sites didn't offer. Aug 28, 2014
Wade T: I use heated gloves but sometimes my thumb and fingers still get cold. Handguards should help protect from the wind and rain Mar 29, 2014
John P: Stromtroopers recommend Mar 17, 2014
O L: Barkbuster reviews and confidence they would fit my NC. Also the no hassle return policy that is offered. Mar 16, 2014
Erik L: wind and weather protection as well as the added benefit of crash protection. Dec 31, 2013
A shopper asked: I live in Texas where rain and cold aren't really a common thing, but when it happens, boy does it happen. Are the plastic storm shield removable? Say I just wanted to run the bike with the aluminum guards on to feel the wind, but have that protection if my V-Strom went down. Could I do that and just keep the guards in handy for the winter months? Nov 20, 2014

Ned V: I purchased this unit last month for my 2013 V-Strom Adventure. I live in Iowa and the bike is in the very cold garage so I have not installed it yet. I did hold it up and it looks like it should work. There was an error on the instruction page. I called Revzilla Customer Service and we got it figured out by looking at a picture of this unit on another site. The Service Rep said he would ask to get the instructions fixed. Feb 10, 2014
