Barkbusters VPS Handguard Kit For 7/8" Handlebars

Barkbusters VPS (Variable Protection System) Handguards are versatile full-wrap handguards that blend tough obstacle protection with moderate weather coverage. Specifically designed for bikes with long brake and clutch levers, including most street and adventure-touring bikes, the VPS guards feature an adjustable height wind deflector.

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. Barkbusters integrates a hardened aluminum backbone with a stylish, replaceable plastic guard to create a truly functional handguard. No more busted levers or knuckles! In the unlikely event that you break a part of the handguard, every piece is replaceable.

Features:

  • Hardened aluminum, full-wrap backbones with two-point mounting hardware
  • Appropriate for street, adventure and trail riding
  • Variable Height Wind Deflector is included to provide extra wind protection
  • Includes all mounting hardware

Works on CRF250L
Install was simple. Strong build.

The red and white plastics match the Honda plastics perfectly.

*Just note that the inner clamp rear bolts should be flipped upside down to make easy access to Allen heads. This might be something just on the CRF250L that needs to be done on the OEM bars because of the cross bar.

Looks great!
Installed on a 2012 KLR 650. Takes a little time but eventually got them to fit. Used stock handlebar end bolts with the spacer supplied with the kit and it works. Only custom mod i had to do was grind off the little metal loop on the left side of the handlebar that holds the choke cable to allow the mounting bracket to fit.

Other than that, they are great! look good and provide great hand protection on the road and off.

Excellent Protection But Research B4 Buying
I originally bought these for my 2010 F650GS but it turns out the bolts on my GS have a greater diameter than the Barkbusters bolts included. They did fit great on my DR 650!

Arguably the best set of hand protectors money can by
Easy and solid install. Nice look. Very rugged and interchangeable options. Does not get in the way of controls. Highly recommended. You get what you pay for.

Works well on a Gen2 KLR
They do the job.
They will fit fine on a current Gen KLR fine, you just need to dremel the little steel loop on the handlebars off. If you can't do that, well, you have issues.

They will fit on the bike with no or minimal clearance issues to the fairing. Bar risers would be better, but stack bars in the clamps will work within very tight tolerances. You may not be able to get the bar tilt you want/need. Also, I had to tilt my brake/clutch lever down quite a bit, which I like. You may not. If you insist on your control lever being level, you need to look to another design that will allow the cables/brake hose to pass.
Good build and very strong. No noticeable vibration issues with the accessory damper weights installed.

Well made
I installed these on my bike and they work great. I like how there's two sets of holes to mount the upper wind deflectors for more or less coverage.

The business!
These crash guards are the business! Well made, sturdy, and easy to fit. My only complaints are that the bar inserts could be more robust. I ended up substituting some Moose bar inserts instead. AND they should come in black.

Great product that I have used on other bikes. For $19 more I think they are a better value than the JET model.

currently own one . want them on another bike
Scott R on Nov 27, 2015
Super well reviewed by other V-Strom riders. Durable, easy to install and superior to OEM handguards. Mainly hoping to keep my hands from freezing on cold morning commutes.
BGold on Nov 23, 2015
Better crash protection than the factory ones, hopefully will spare me from having to fix a clutch lever on the trail.
James K on Oct 17, 2015
The best handguard for the KLR. Fit perfectly and are very strong.

Hi Revzilla. i have a Triumph Tiger 800 abs 2014 this model is ok for me? Best Regards
A S on Mar 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would call Revzilla directly and talk to someone to give you a specific answer. I bought these for my 2010 BMW F650GS and turned out they would not fit because the bike has massive bolts that would not fit these handguards. Luckily they fit my DR650 so it worked out in the end. I but a second pair for my Beemer from another place.
I have used this one on two on my KLRs. Great product. Will they fit a 2007 F650GS with heated grips?
Andre M on Feb 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I mounted these on my 2010 BMW 650GS and worked fine with the heated grips. I don't think BMW changed specs on the handlebars through these years. I googled the 2007 bmw GS for photos and the handlebars appear to be the same type as my 2010.
Will this fit on a 2009 kawasaki versys 650?
Kelevra on Jun 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I do not know on the Versys. If it has the vibration weights on the end of the bars it may just bolt up. On the KLR650 2009 it is that way I removed the weights and added the Busters then put the weights back on. Go to barkbusters dot net for fitment.
Is this product compatible with a 2011 BMW F650GS (twin)?
A shopper on Dec 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If the handlebar diameter matches, you should be good to go. Would also cross ref part number with manufacturers website/sizing chart.
