Barkbusters VPS Handguard Kit BMW R1200GS / Adventure / S1000XR / R1200R

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 all mounting hardware

WAY Better than the OEM handguards
I don't think the stock handguards would hold up to much, and i like to challenge myself which means probably dropping my bike. on the water cooled GSs the OEM handguard design is WAY flimsier than the previous era of the line... i know the older style guards could take a beating...

barkbusters are the ticket. aluminum from bar end to solid mount at the handlebar. on the GS though i would get the "storm" version of the handguards. the VPS do not provide enough weather protection. plus the storm covers aren't splattered with a huge white logo! (personal opinion).

a fitment note on my bike (R1200GSWA): you will not get full bar lock in either direction as these guards drop very low below the bar (unnessarily low imo). the bottom of the guard will touch the tank plastics on the adventure with the bars at their stock height. i have my bars raised 25mm for riding while standing and for better egos while slabbing it, so the clearance is perfect (3/8"+).

So far I haven't had to test the durability (tipover, crash, etc.)
Installed in less than 45 minutes. Still fine tuning the position for airflow

Wanted something that would actually protect in the event of a fall. The OEM guards, not sure why they are even there.
