hand guards
« on: 06 February, 2020, 05:15:59 PM »
I know this has probably been asked before but, could anyone advise if they have fitted the cheaper end hand guards and how did you find them. unfortunately on a budget so have to look at the non honda makes. The problem being that I have a mk 1 bike with a break fluid reservoir on each side of my handlebar restricting mounting points.
Any advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

There was a thread on that very subject not too long ago, I'll see if I can find it

barkbusters hand guards , the only thing I did was trim a bit off the right hand one to allow more room for the cables

ToonCBF I had stainless steel one on but the sunlight would shine on it and straight in my eye so needed a change , very good price too  from ebay ,

this bit was missing from the last post " I tried a few different hand guards some went into the bin the really cheap ones but found the bark busters the best

I had those same Barkbusters, but that particular one isn't available any longer.  Someone "borrowed" my right hand one and I can't get a replacement.  Going to try the smaller ones... Barkbuster VPS but may want the extra wind deflectors, as they are a smaller guard.  There are several generic dirt bike guards that are not a lot of money.
