Barkbusters Storm Handguard Kit For 7/8" or 1 1/8" Handlebars Videos

Barkbusters Storm Handguard Kit For 7/8" or 1 1/8 Handlebars

Maximum wind and rain protection for street and adventure-touring bikes!

Storm handguards have an aerodynamic design and a larger profile that wraps around the hands to offer excellent wind and weather protection. The wide profile is great for street riding and open trails. Storm Full-Wrap Backbone with two mounting points, this is the strongest backbone available, and is recommended for dual-sport 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. In the unlikely event that you break a part of the handguard, every piece is replaceable.

Love this product!
Let's start by saying it was easy to install, and looks great. It gives me the peace of mind that my hand controls are now bullet proof, and will not suffer any damage if my bike goes down. Thank god I have yet to see them in action, but I have faith because of there construction. They are 100% better than the ones that came on the bike.

Heavy duty, sturdy, nice product
Installed on a 2009 KLR650. Once installed, the product seems very sturdy and will stand up to several drops or crashes, haven't tested out yet, thankfully. I think the plastic Storm guard piece could use another anchor point. Also, to install, I had to cut off a little metal bracket on the left side of my handlebar with a hacksaw. Also, the actual "Storm" sticker I received was a dark gray and not white, and stuck on lower and more to the inside of the bars than what is shown on the picture. (This probably won't matter for others, but being that my actual name is Storm, I was looking forward to it being displayed more prominently.) I would have given this 5 stars, if it was priced about $25 less, the Storm sticker was as displayed, and I didn't have to do the extra work to hack off part of my handlebars. Other than that, great product, and I would definitely buy and recommend it again.

Top Notch Handguards!
I replaced my single point stock hand guards on my Suzuki DR650 with these Barkbustbuster Storms. The perfect fix and upgrade. Not only are they really well designed and made, but offer excellent wind and rain protection. The install was quite simple and well instructed. They should do well in an impact by their construction. I think they look even better than the stockers did. Love 'em!

Easy install, quality product.
Installed these on my beater KLR that I ride at the Oregon place. Ride all the local back roads/logging roads so the occasional tip over does occur....which hasn't fazed the Barkbusters in the least. The Barkbusters were a very quick and easy install. Quality product. Great wind/rain protection and pretty toasty with heated grips. Kinda pricey but have used cheaper brands with less than ideal outcomes.

Great product for an even better price
These bark busters are a great deal, they come with all the mounting hardware and the bark busters them self's. Would have given 5 stars but they do vibrate a bit when warming up the bike.

To protect my hands. It keeps them warmer too.
Justin L on Apr 23, 2016
Biffed a few times on the KLR while riding in the trails and had to repair the controls. Heard some great things about the storm barkbusters and I will give them a shot. They should also keep some wind off my hands during cooler rides.

Upgrade from factory KLR650 hand guards along with the lever protection and brand quality.

The brand and style was recommended by a riding friend.

My son has them on his KLR and they are nice.
Tim on Dec 7, 2014
I chose these because they were said to fit my bike, 2007 dl1000. These would never fit my bike without major modification. These should not be listed as a universal part!
Andy M on Sep 20, 2014
in the last year I have broken one clutch lever and bent another. I have also broken the left mirror mount on my klr which is the headlight/ turn signal module as well. that was a spendy fix. I don't know if the barkbusters will help with the mirror but it can't hurt. as I get more into adventure riding I can see that good hand guards are essential.
rnfrider on Sep 3, 2014
I chose the Barkbuster Storm Handguards after doing quite a bit of research online. I wanted maximum coverage and protection from a high-quality supplier and Barkbusters definitely had the reputation. I gave some serious thought to changing out the handlebars to 1", but decided the stock bar would probably work for the kind of stuff I'm planning.

I am looking for hand guards for a Honda CRF250L. I thought that the Barkbusters would fit without modification but am not sure. Can you advise me as to which hand guards would go on this bike without having to mod them? Thanks.

I have a 2009 KLR 650 with the vibration weights on the end of the handlebars. Looking at your Barkbusters Storm Kit. Can they be mounted with the vibration weights?

Will these fit on my F650GS TWIN 2009 BMW ?
A shopper on Mar 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Not sure. I got them for a 2007 dl 1000 suzuki, they didn't fit, and I had to return them. Bark busters makes a model specific for my bike, it was $20 more than this model. The difference was a specific piece that would allow mounting around my clutch and brake controls. I couldn't have mounted them otherwise, so the extra $ was necessary. I don't know if that helped, good luck!
Do these come in a pair?
A C on Jul 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes and work great on KLR650, I also recommend the bar end weights by barkbusters, well made
Will this fit the Kawasaki Versys 650?

HIjust would like to know if the storm bark buster will fit a new 2015 f700gs and do you have them in white, also would like to by an altrider bash plate? ,if you could let me know , thank you Trevor

Will this product fit a 2005 Suzuki V-strom 1000 with Pro Taper 7/8" bars? My 2 concerns are...
1) Will they fit around the clutch fluid housing units on both sides?
2) Will this kit include the bar end weights for proper installation as the previous owner of my bike did not reinstall them after he swapped the factory bars out.
