Cold weather riding.
Bryce Z on Jul 6, 2017
less cold tolerant as I grow older and hoping these allow me to get rid of wires in the winter

Cold weather riding.
Bryce Z on Jul 6, 2017
Cold hands, good reviews. Ultimately, though, they ended up mounting in such a way as to shred the wiring for my hand grip heater elements, and so I've removed them and will be selling them off.

Gary S on Jan 12, 2017
Because they work well with heated grips, summer gloves year 'ROUND.
George C on Dec 27, 2016
wanted something to block the cold wind so I could ride later into the winter when my gloves can't keep up
Mariano M on Dec 15, 2016
Previous purchase for another bike. These are great!
Al G on Nov 26, 2016
I needed protection from the wind on cold days. I ride my bike year around and wind protection is important for comfortable winter riding, even in South Carolina.

Great for keeping wind off the hands during those winter rides
Thorspapa on Jun 22, 2016
Recommended by a fellow rider
Tim N on Jun 2, 2016
Great option to block wind in winter. Lots of adapters to fit two of my bikes. It takes about 5 minutes to install or remove. Does not require hand guards. Fits my '14 FJR easily.
RobR on May 26, 2016
Definitely a must for winter riding. I combined these with Oxford heated grips and rode all winter through 15-30 degree weather.
GSams13 on May 21, 2016
This thing extended my riding through the entire winter season. If you want to block the extra wind get this item. I was able to ride in temps under 20 degrees F
Dean L on Mar 10, 2016
My fingers are freezing!
Bradley W on Mar 7, 2016
Easy on and off. Can use with heated grips and standard gloves.
Troy B on Dec 27, 2015
I bought a set that O love and I am giving these as a gift
Paul V on Dec 15, 2015
I asked Barkbusters, and these were the only one fitting / recommended for my bike. 15 CBR300RA. Less wind and less rain on the gloves = warmer. (I then added heated gloves and jacket liner)
Terry on Nov 23, 2015
I'd seen the product in Europe on several bikes and they seemed popular. I read the reviews on the product and all were favorable. I plan to ride my bike in the winter and want my hands get cold easily.
Steve P on Oct 19, 2015
Decided to go with these over the Oxford muffs, since a lot of reviews on those said they can collapse onto the controls. Need some sort of rain/wind/weather guard to stretch my riding deeper into the cold months.
sk8nsanta on Oct 5, 2015
These are fantastic addition for winter riding. Not total protection but they sure work in keeping the chill away from your hands on top of your hand guards. LOVE THEM.
Leslie S on May 7, 2015
Block the wind and others I ride with use this product.
Mark H on May 4, 2015
To keep wind and rain off hands, do not want to install heated grips at this time. They appear to install and remove easily, and got favorable reviews, for the exact reasons I want them. I felt the sale price made them a good value.
Dennis Z on Feb 15, 2015
I wanted to try this for my girlfriend's F650GS since she complains of frozen fingers on winter rides....
Chris W on Jan 25, 2015
These work
William L on Jan 1, 2015
Just trying to do all I can to avoid the complexities of heated gear.
Chadwick D on Dec 9, 2014
I ride Year Around...unless just down-right dangerous, such as ice and snow. But ice & snow are RARE here in the Atlanta area.
But even with my newly added Heated Grips my 'control fingers' (clutch and brake) are off-contact with the heated grips... So wind and dampness can still make them rather cold. Adding liners that distribute heat makes my gloves tight and less maneuverable.
So I am looking for protection that can be easily removed in warm weather and Track Days...
FLOYD B on Nov 29, 2014
Keep the cold wind off my hands this winter
S P on Nov 8, 2014
The weather is changing here in NY, I like to wear lighter gloves, these will work great.
A s on Sep 17, 2014
I need a temporary wind guard for the winter months.

Will these fit a 2014 BMW K1600GTL?
A shopper on Mar 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Im not sure about that. Its possible. If it them onto my 2005 Yamaha FZ5, and they work great. I've had then on since October and still have them on. They have allowed me to ride a lot more thus season.
You just need to be able to slide then into the end of the handlebars. And they do come with different fit sizes.
Any idea how these would work with bar end mirrors?
A shopper on Nov 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You need a small hole on the end to pass a bolt through the same as bar end weight. I have gilles variobars which are solid aluminum, so I drilled and tapped them to accept the included bolt. I think it was 5/16 ths. They do work great at blocking wind and are soft enough that you can still lock your bars. Good luck.
Will these fit on a Versys 2015 1000?
A shopper on Nov 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They work great, I love them. I have a 2009 ER-6N, cousin to the Versys, and the installation was less then 15 minutes with visual appearance and functionality adjustments. They have a special note for Kawasaki's with rubber mounted handlebar weights. It's really simple, it took me more time to separate all of the parts in the two bags than it did to install them.
Has anyone tried installing on a Ducati Monster?
Michael P on Feb 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I installed these on a 1997 vfr. They should Definetly install easily on a naked bike.they make a huge difference with wind and even some rain
How might these work in comparison to something like Hippo-Hands?
Mateo R on Nov 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Not sure about the Hippo hands, but I just installed these over my regular Barkbusters on my 14 R1200GS. The fit up well, and provide great protection from wind and rain. I would recommend these to other rider wanting environmental protection.
I have a 2013 Harley Softail Breakout. Will these fit? It says universal/will fit any bike, but it looks like it requires a bolt at the end of the handgrip & I don't have a place for a bolt to be installed. thanks
A shopper on Dec 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi...
Yeah, it came with a whole bag of different size bolts and spacers, no clamps. And, I would spend your money on heated gloves and/or grips because these weren't very effective....
would these be easy to swap quickly with the plastic from a set of Barkbuster Storm handguards?
Davide D on Nov 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It takes me about 5 minutes to switch these out. You just have to take out the handlebar screws. Easy Peasy
Are these compatible with throttlemeister bar-ends?
David L on Jul 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I've used them with kaoko cruise control with no problems, so they should work with the throttle meister.
Riding a Versys 2015 1000. Anyone installed these on this bike?
A shopper on Nov 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They work great, I love them. I have a 2009 ER-6N, cousin to the Versys, and the installation was less then 15 minutes with visual appearance and functionality adjustments. They have a special note for Kawasaki's with rubber mounted handlebar weights. It's really simple, it took me more time to separate all of the parts in the two bags than it did to install them.
Any idea how these work on a bike with bar end mirrors?
Jason C on Nov 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I had to remove my bar end weights in order to install this one, you probably wouldn't be able to keep both.
