Barkbusters VPS Handguard Mount Kit Honda Varadero XL1000V / NC700X / 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.

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 (sold separately)
  • Includes both left and right handguard mounts

Note: Mount Kit only. VPS Plastic Guards not included (sold separately). Image for reference only.

Barkbusters VPS Handguard Mount Kit Honda/Kawasaki/Suzuki 5 5 1 1
Just buy them! Bought these for my V-Strom 650 for additional hand and lever protection. Yes, these should be standard items on any ADV or dirt bike, and, no, Suzuki doesn't include them. These bars are heavy duty aluminum and you are going to have screw up in a major way to do any serious damage to them. They already saved my clutch lever when the Arizona mud caked up under my front fender and jammed my wheel. Well worth the money! Install was not overly hard and took about an hour for both sides. It took a while to get everything positioned around the cables and wires, but was a fairly straightforward process. Just be careful removing your bar end weights so you don't lose the locknuts inside your handlebars! I read enough other reviews that I avoided this. All you need to do is loosen the screws, not remove them, and the entire assembly can be wiggled out. While you don't need the plastic covers, Barkbusters has a wide range to choose from and the install is simple. The plastic covers are durable and survived my spill easily. October 12, 2015
