Barkbusters VPS Handguard Kit

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 all mounting hardware

Barkbusters VPS Handguard Kit Honda/Kawasaki/Suzuki 4.7 5 18 18
Great product It takes a few attempts to figure out exactly which piece angles which direction and so forth, but once that was determined they bolted right up. There was no need to move any lines, handle or master cylinder mounts. They look great and fit well! July 14, 2016
Great product but I had to move the master cylinder to get things to line up to install, afterwards it fit perfectly. There is A LOT more vibration after install which was a bit disappointing, as my stock bar weights were heavier and reduced it more. Overall great product however. January 14, 2016
Tough and effective. They're good looking too! These were purchased more to protect the bike from my inexperience than anything else, and they have performed brilliantly. The guards have already absorbed the damage from a low speed fall, leaving the bars and controls unscathed. Use care installing the plastic guards to the aluminum frames, as they mount using sheet metal screws tightened into pre-drilled holes. The instructions made it clear which screws, washers, and weights to use on which bikes, but were not very clear on how to configure the adjustable mounting hardware in relation to the handle bar. I found the best fit by trial and error. Road debris, insects, light rain; none of it overcomes the VPS system. I am thoroughly impressed with how well these hand guards perform. If you're installing them on a Honda NC700, be ready for a fight to get the OE bar end weights off. Otherwise, it's a straightforward install. August 4, 2015
Peace of mind The main reason I got some Barkbusters was for peace of mind in the event that I dump my bike somewhere that my controls should stay in one piece and I'll be able to get home. I've grown tired of replacing clutch levers. They were easy to install and feel rock solid once everything is tightened up. The hardest part of the install was removing the OEM bar end weights from my handlebars, which took a little wiggling, and slightly rerouting my front brake cable to clear the mounting hardware. As an added bonus, my gloves now get nearly no dead bugs on them any more, since they are now splattered all over the Barkbuster plastics instead! July 27, 2015
Would have been Great on stock bars Bought these to go on some aftermarket inexpensive "Raptor Bend" (if I remember right) aluminum bars that I had purchased after bending the stock bars and chewing up the left-side hand guard and bar end in a little slider I took on the bike. I chose the Barkbusters for the following reasons: --stout build, --apparently intelligent and adjustable mounting hardware, --interchangeable plastics that mount to metal "bark buster" hand guard pieces. The interchangeable plastics made sense to me, as I ride in varying climates. When I am commuting to and from work in the mountains where I live, morning temps are in the high 30's and low 40's, so even with grip heaters, I'll take all the wind block I can get (the Storm model was out of stock, so went with these). But when I go on a tour, it tends to be to warmer climes, so, more airflow on my hands is nice. Interchangeable or removable air deflectors seemed to just the thing for this. The mounting kit showed up and I was stoked to see that it included bar end weights that work with hand guards--way cool. Mounting to aftermarket bars, I found that I had to get creative to get them on the non stock bar bend. Also, I had to order the correct sized bar end mount, but Revzilla had what I needed in stock and got it to me quickly. Anyway, with some fiddling, Iwas able to get it all mounted up. My bike is rattlecan bedliner black and I am going to paint the grips the same way (I'm not sponsored by Barkbuster, so why advertise for them when paying full retail?), but otherwise I am ready to ride. So yes, I would recomend these, but maybe do more research than I did so that if you buy model-specific hand guards to mount to aftermarket bars, you will have an easier time with the install than I did. Gave them 5 stars, as the mounting challenges were due to my lack of planning, and while I don't mind paying more for the quality stuff (and would buy these again), there are less expensive options out there.

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
