hand guards
on: December 11, 2014, 10:49:58 AM
Hi folks
I'm looking to fit hand guards to my CR, as having recently purchased it previously riding a BMW RT the old hands are feeling the cold despite heated grips.    Sat a NC700 the other day with guards fitted that secured to the bar end and the mirror stanchion, which the owner said were of an Aprilia!  So have any of you fitted hand guards and if so what make and di you experience any issues, oh, and do they work?
regards
Heathy

I installed the bark buster S7. They're just attached to the bar ends, so the other end hovers. They do the job and I'm happy with them.

My only gripe would be that the loose end rubs against the main console when on full lock. But given I rarely do that, it's a very minor issue.

They take no time at all to install as you're essentially just changing the bar ends.

There are one or two threads on here about hand-guards. Barkbuster Storms are popular:

I.f they hit the console of full-lock you can give the aluminium 'spine' a tweak in a vice before you fit them.

I was going to suggest the barkbusters, but I was late getting up :008:
