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.

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 bar end weights and all mounting hardware

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.

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
Pricy, but great. I had a tough time deciding to order these, mainly because of the cost. You can find other hand guards for less, but in the end these offer greater protection if you drop the bike. They feel really solid and well built and they fit the cb500x perfectly. Glad I bought them, despite the cost. June 3, 2014
More sturdy than OEM I am happy with the quality and fit of the guards. They are more expensive than others, but I like the full metal guard (unlike OEM) and having the ability to swap the plastics out. I installed these on a 2014 Vstrom 1000. May 29, 2014
easy fits works great I put these on an '03 Bandit 1200. The clutch master got in the way alittle, but they fit straight and look awesome. May 5, 2014
This is a great addition for adventure riders or anyone who has heated grips. I was in the market for something to add wind deflection and bug deflection. The Barkbusters VPS hand guards when coupled with my heated grips allowed me to keep my hands warm and extend my riding season. The hand guards also have a support bar built into the construction that helps prevent your controls from breaking if you do have to lay down your bike. Installation was simple and only took me about a half hour to complete. The hand guards come with an extender that screw into the top of the main hand guard shell and adds additional wind deflection. This set is great for the rider who wants to keep most of the wind of their hands and add a layer of protection. Overall I am very happy with this set and would recommend it to anyone who plans on long distance rides or adventure style riding. February 24, 2014
No issues. It took a few tries to get the handles positioned correctly, but they fit great, with no issues. Tight fit by the front brake, had to shift it over, but it will fit. February 11, 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
