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.
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

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.

Install on NC700X with heated grips
Just installed these on my NC700X with heated grips. Seems many people find it hard to remove the internal Honda weights to install the end weights that came with this kit. I was worried about that but had no problem.
The right side is "easy" in that you just need to loose a few bolts / screws to expose the end of the bar.
On the left side you cannot roll the heat grip as per the instructions. Instead I found I was able to slide the grip completely off.
It took a little effort but I was done in about an hour. I also reapplied Honda grip cement on the left side.
The result - much warmer hands on today's ride to work.

Great fit and wind protection
I purchased these for my 2012 V-strom 650 and they're much more solid than the OEM guards. Great wind protection for winter riding and the bonus of much stronger guards for the brake and clutch lever.
No drops yet, but I'm happy with the purchase and the items arrived on time.

These were mounted on a VStrom DL650 and the installation turned out to be quite simple after I finally noticed how they had it installed in the install guide (meaning, orientation of the handlebar clamps), which turned out to be 100% correct for my bike. The guards look good and feel quite solid, although I have not yet gotten to take the bike out (winter in Colorado and all)

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
