CBF1000 - General Discussion / Re: Handguards for CBF1000 (2009)

On my Mk1, I did fit Barkbuster Storms, but as Art says they are a bit on the big side..  The handlebars on these rigs are narrow at 27", so I installed 31" Emgo Scrambles handlebars and promptly shortened them ~3/4" on each end, drilled the appropriate holes for the switch pods.  Next, 1" risers, and found I prefer them a bit back, so next risers that go up and back 1".  Simply because the new bars had slightly less pullback and rise.....  Now we have room for Barkbusters.... at full turn they will contact the mirrors, so adjust mirror bases only slightly swept back.  You'll figure it out.

I would look for slimmer handguards if available, anything helps.

The BB's I used have a clamp mount that just barely works with the wider bars.  There is a type that mount on the bar ends only......
I just repeated this on my MkII.

@art I had risers on before I fitted the guards so they went on very easy on problems only the small cut to the right one

Interesting...

With aftermarket (shorty) levers, does the steering turn full lock without interference on the fairing, screen or petrol tank?

I rejected Barkbusters because of the manufacturers fitting instructions

The handguard will touch the windscreen. To reduce the interference, drill an additional hole in the black plastic L Bracket to relocate the handguard 15mm closer to the handlebar.
The handlebar also needs to be rolled back 5-10mm.

I didn't think there was enough clearance inside the guards to accommodate the standard levers, rolling the bars back will cause the switch gear to knock on the petrol tank and I have an extra switch on the left bar too which would restrict the Barkbuster bar mount.

... 7 hours in a rain !!!!
Hence the requirement for the 'Oxford Bone Dry' muffs  :016:

Although I must say the hand guards gave some protection against the rain, just one change of gloves from the JTS leather winter to Frank Thomas Aqua textiles, was all that was necessary to arrive home with dry hands.
