Barkbusters VPS Handguard Kit For 7/8" Handlebars

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.


  • 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

Great product that I have used on other bikes. For $19 more I think they are a better value than the JET model.
Don W on Dec 7, 2015
currently own one . want them on another bike
Scott R on Nov 27, 2015
Super well reviewed by other V-Strom riders. Durable, easy to install and superior to OEM handguards. Mainly hoping to keep my hands from freezing on cold morning commutes.
BGold on Nov 23, 2015
Better crash protection than the factory ones, hopefully will spare me from having to fix a clutch lever on the trail.
James K on Oct 17, 2015
The best handguard for the KLR. Fit perfectly and are very strong.

Hi Revzilla. i have a Triumph Tiger 800 abs 2014 this model is ok for me? Best Regards
A S on Mar 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would call Revzilla directly and talk to someone to give you a specific answer. I bought these for my 2010 BMW F650GS and turned out they would not fit because the bike has massive bolts that would not fit these handguards. Luckily they fit my DR650 so it worked out in the end. I but a second pair for my Beemer from another place.
what color is the deflector for the different color handguards?
A shopper on Apr 20, 2017
I have used this one on two on my KLRs. Great product. Will they fit a 2007 F650GS with heated grips?
Andre M on Feb 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I mounted these on my 2010 BMW 650GS and worked fine with the heated grips. I don't think BMW changed specs on the handlebars through these years. I googled the 2007 bmw GS for photos and the handlebars appear to be the same type as my 2010.
Will this fit on a 2009 kawasaki versys 650?
Kelevra on Jun 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I do not know on the Versys. If it has the vibration weights on the end of the bars it may just bolt up. On the KLR650 2009 it is that way I removed the weights and added the Busters then put the weights back on. Go to barkbusters dot net for fitment.
Is this product compatible with a 2011 BMW F650GS (twin)?
A shopper on Dec 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If the handlebar diameter matches, you should be good to go. Would also cross ref part number with manufacturers website/sizing chart.
Will these work on a 2017 triumph street scrambler with tapered handlebars?
Tim W on Jul 17, 2017
do these work for a 2005 GS 1200?
