Hi Bifferman,yes early sixties, for years I commuted to work with a newspaper stuffed inside my leather jacket and yes it did keep the draught
from blowing through the zip.-Snibor

Hm! Just had a look on the Honka site at the deflector kit (rrp £60) and decided that I will give them a bash. Horses for courses I suppose but my brother in law has a pretty big set of deflectors on his Triumph and for me it makes it look like it ought to be out on a muddy track somewhere!

This is a very intresting thread. I have been looking at handguards for a little while now and could not decide what to fit. You lot have solved it for me ... many thanks.

As I'm getting olde now cold hands are becoming a pain - in the hands not the butt! - so hopfully this will fix it.

I have ordered the Honda ones from David Silver, it is choice, thou I do think the Acerbis guards look nice.

Cheers.

Simples to fit, just make sure you clean the cowl well first.   Firm down well and wait 3 days if you are paranoid or go for a ride if not.

Hi Andy, cheers, I have fitted them ... they are very easy. As for the cleaning isopropyl alchohol does the trick. I use it all the time.

Now to try 'em  :001:
