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.

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
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. April 22, 2014
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.

Solid Product 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) February 11, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Brock H: Best price and protection. Oct 18, 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

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
