In the unlikely event that you break a part of the handguard, every piece is replaceable.

Tough and effective. They're good looking too!
These were purchased more to protect the bike from my inexperience than anything else, and they have performed brilliantly.

The guards have already absorbed the damage from a low speed fall, leaving the bars and controls unscathed.

Use care installing the plastic guards to the aluminum frames, as they mount using sheet metal screws tightened into pre-drilled holes.

The instructions made it clear which screws, washers, and weights to use on which bikes, but were not very clear on how to configure the adjustable mounting hardware in relation to the handle bar. I found the best fit by trial and error.

Road debris, insects, light rain; none of it overcomes the VPS system. I am thoroughly impressed with how well these hand guards perform.

If you're installing them on a Honda NC700, be ready for a fight to get the OE bar end weights off. Otherwise, it's a straightforward install.

Great product, install documented
The quality is great and they look really cool. I had some issues installing them even after quite a bit of research on forums. The handlebar weights need to be removed and after I figured it out the install went pretty smooth.

Great product
It takes a few attempts to figure out exactly which piece angles which direction and so forth, but once that was determined they bolted right up. There was no need to move any lines, handle or master cylinder mounts.
They look great and fit well!

Just in time!
Bought these as drop protection more than anything else. I have a 2012 v-strom 650 adventure which I occasionally like to take on mild trails. Well, 2 days after installing these my wife, who doesn't ride, was sitting on the bike "trying things out"... Needless to say, she accidentally let out the clutch a bit too much, panicked, and dumped the bike. Between my Givi crash bars and these hand guards, the bake fared better than either me or my wife (I tried to catch her and the bike--I don't recommend this!) The Barkbusters caught the bring of the fall, sustaining only a few mild scratches to the plastic, which are barely noticeable. Cheap insurance!

They also do a decent job of wind protection, but I might install the extended guards when winter comes. Install was also relatively painless. The toughest part was getting the old bar end weights out. Highly recommended.

This is a great addition for adventure riders or anyone who has heated grips.
I was in the market for something to add wind deflection and bug deflection. The Barkbusters VPS hand guards when coupled with my heated grips allowed me to keep my hands warm and extend my riding season. The hand guards also have a support bar built into the construction that helps prevent your controls from breaking if you do have to lay down your bike. Installation was simple and only took me about a half hour to complete. The hand guards come with an extender that screw into the top of the main hand guard shell and adds additional wind deflection. This set is great for the rider who wants to keep most of the wind of their hands and add a layer of protection. Overall I am very happy with this set and would recommend it to anyone who plans on long distance rides or adventure style riding.

Pricy, but great.
I had a tough time deciding to order these, mainly because of the cost. You can find other hand guards for less, but in the end these offer greater protection if you drop the bike. They feel really solid and well built and they fit the cb500x perfectly. Glad I bought them, despite the cost.

Would have been Great on stock bars
Bought these to go on some aftermarket inexpensive "Raptor Bend" (if I remember right) aluminum bars that I had purchased after bending the stock bars and chewing up the left-side hand guard and bar end in a little slider I took on the bike.

I chose the Barkbusters for the following reasons:
--stout build,
--apparently intelligent and adjustable mounting hardware,
--interchangeable plastics that mount to metal "bark buster" hand guard pieces.

The interchangeable plastics made sense to me, as I ride in varying climates. When I am commuting to and from work in the mountains where I live, morning temps are in the high 30's and low 40's, so even with grip heaters, I'll take all the wind block I can get (the Storm model was out of stock, so went with these). But when I go on a tour, it tends to be to warmer climes, so, more airflow on my hands is nice. Interchangeable or removable air deflectors seemed to just the thing for this.

The mounting kit showed up and I was stoked to see that it included bar end weights that work with hand guards--way cool. Mounting to aftermarket bars, I found that I had to get creative to get them on the non stock bar bend. Also, I had to order the correct sized bar end mount, but Revzilla had what I needed in stock and got it to me quickly. Anyway, with some fiddling, Iwas able to get it all mounted up. My bike is rattlecan bedliner black and I am going to paint the grips the same way (I'm not sponsored by Barkbuster, so why advertise for them when paying full retail?), but otherwise I am ready to ride.

So yes, I would recomend these, but maybe do more research than I did so that if you buy model-specific hand guards to mount to aftermarket bars, you will have an easier time with the install than I did. Gave them 5 stars, as the mounting challenges were due to my lack of planning, and while I don't mind paying more for the quality stuff (and would buy these again), there are less expensive options out there.

Looks Great and Practical
Did a lot of reading on line about the guards and paid close attention to people's installation stories. Tricks on how to remove the internal Weight Bars from within the handlebars, loosening the the right side parts to move the throttle grip to expose the pins that needed to be pressed in to remove the OEM weight bars etc. After doing my homework, I ordered it from RevZilla and installed it without any problems. Doing it on my own saved me $80 an hour for labor quoted by the service shop. Looks great and both protects the levers and keeps the wind and cold off my hands. Highly recommended.
