Barkbusters VPS Handguard Kit Honda CB500X / NC700X /  XL1000VA Varadero /  Kawasaki Versys 1000 / Suzuki VStrom DL650 / DL1000 / 

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.


  • 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 bar end weights and all mounting hardware

Perfect fit, really does what it is suppose to do. Easy to install, real world protection with good looks. a great product, what more is there to say. Time to ride. May 12, 2015
Prfect The best handguards for the money. The install on my Honda NC750X was a lite tricky but went well and look great. When putting them on the NC750X don't try to remove the handle bar weight as per the instructions. Use the existing bolt. I have no dought the Barkbusters will save my leavers in a drop. May 11, 2015
Durable and good looking I bought these primarily to deal with harsh weather riding, they have worked outstandingly. The install wasn't too bad, took about 30-45 minutes. Overall, I would definitely recommend the Barkbusters VPS. February 18, 2015
Great product, install documented The quality is great and they look really cool. I had some issues installing them even after quite a bit of research on forums. The handlebar weights need to be removed and after I figured it out the install went pretty smooth.

Looks Great and Practical Did a lot of reading on line about the guards and paid close attention to people's installation stories. Tricks on how to remove the internal Weight Bars from within the handlebars, loosening the the right side parts to move the throttle grip to expose the pins that needed to be pressed in to remove the OEM weight bars etc. After doing my homework, I ordered it from RevZilla and installed it without any problems. Doing it on my own saved me $80 an hour for labor quoted by the service shop. Looks great and both protects the levers and keeps the wind and cold off my hands. Highly recommended. January 2, 2015
Expensive but Practical I installed these handguards on my NC700x the other day and the installation was a bit tricky. The instruction manual was a abstract about the removal of the original bar ends. The price is a bit high, but they are sturdy and do the job with wind protection. One thing to notice though, if you are in a cold climate area, get the storm guards. They offer better winter weather protection. Overall, I am very pleased with the product. November 26, 2014
good product, could have better instructions Installed these Saturday. Left side went on no problems, right side was a little tougher. Wound up with the end nut rolling around loose inside the handlebars (arg!) and couldn't get the expansion sleeve out to be able to retrieve the lost nut. After a few choice words and a lot of unsuccessful attempts to get it out, I used a hole tap to bite into it enough to wiggle it out. After that, re-installation went smoothly. Was my fault, really, but still detracted from the experience. The resulting, installed product seems very substantial, and I expect they will be very protective in the event I drop the bike. September 8, 2014
Just in time! Bought these as drop protection more than anything else. I have a 2012 v-strom 650 adventure which I occasionally like to take on mild trails. Well, 2 days after installing these my wife, who doesn't ride, was sitting on the bike "trying things out"... Needless to say, she accidentally let out the clutch a bit too much, panicked, and dumped the bike. Between my Givi crash bars and these hand guards, the bake fared better than either me or my wife (I tried to catch her and the bike--I don't recommend this!) The Barkbusters caught the bring of the fall, sustaining only a few mild scratches to the plastic, which are barely noticeable. Cheap insurance! They also do a decent job of wind protection, but I might install the extended guards when winter comes. Install was also relatively painless. The toughest part was getting the old bar end weights out. Highly recommended. July 16, 2014

Jerod A: I am preparing for the COBDR this Summer and wanted to replace my OEM Suzuki hand guards with something that could endure a few spills, I bought the Barkbuster because of their great reputation and also a friend recently purchased a pair for his Tenere and told me how easy this product went on his bike. I am looking forward to getting these on my Vstrom! Jan 29, 2014

Bruce H: Yes I do think they will stand up to that kind of drop. The loop seems secure and I also bought the plastic ends in case I do drop and will not mar the metal loops. Overall I was impressed with build quality of Barkbusters and all the hardware. good luck and don't drop if you don't haft too. May 5, 2015

Steve B: Joel,
While I have yet to "test" the impact durability yet...the guards are well built and seem like a good design to absorb a brunt of the hit if the bike falls.
All of the Barkbuster parts are replaceable, if I read the website correct'y.

safe riding

A shopper asked: Does anyone have pictures of the throttle side install on a CB500X? Santa brought these for the wife's CB500X but I am having trouble fitting the right side , the throttle side. I've tried mirroring the left side installation and also putting the handlebar bracket on flipped vertically but have either run into a clamp and brake master cylinder fit collision or have had the clamp hit the gas tank fairing when the handlebars are turned to the lock on the right. I've tried the 10 mm and the 15 mm spacer on the right (15 is called for in directions) but just can't get this side installed. Dec 28, 2014
