i was at suzuki dealer with my tape measure looking at the vstrom hand guards.  i suspect they will fit without modification and at 50 quid way cheaper.
going to be ordering a set soon.

I got mine from Barkbusters. The S7 model that fit into the bar ends, but the other end are "floating". Apart from helping keep the wind off my hands I'm not sure what kind of protection they really offer.

Nights in Melbourne during winter can be cold! Rarely below zero but low single digit. Add in the wind chill and I'll take whatever protection I can get.

Went on the annual icicle ride this year (middle of winter into the hills) and found the combination of heated grips and barkbusters worked perfectly.

Learnt that the barkbusters must keep the kangaroos at bay as I was the only one who didn't see any. ;)

Where did you get the barkbusters from? anywhere online? None of my local dealerships in sydney stock them, that ive found so far.

By shear luck I found mine in "Peter Stevens" while I was looking for some wet weather gear.

From memory I was about to buy some direct from Barkbusters until I found them locally.
