I've found the Givi guards to be effective and they mount securely to the bars.

Same with my Barkbusters.

Most handguards do a crappy job at keeping your hands dry or warm, hence I use elephant ears over the handguards from octobre till april.

What is the general feeling about handguards, I have seen some acerbis items that just use the bar end bolt as a fixing point.

Depends on the guard I suppose.

You guys scared me, mostly by the 16 stone equals 200kg.  :005:

At 200kg I would have felt sorry for the bike.

But I think that's a typo. 16 stone is 100kg.

Honda's heated grips are a tad weak anyway but with a decent set of handguards they are sufficient.
It's probably a case of wire economy on Honda's part but, obviously, the grips won't work with the ignition switched off irrespective of whether or not the engine is running.

 :400: Welcome to the forum, Jemx.
I'm 19 stone and manged to set up the standard suspension to suit me.
My 2019 luckily doesn't suffer from the stuttering but, like yourself, I've heard that some CR's and many other makes do.

Does anybody know are the Honda panniers for the VFR800F 2014 & on the same as those for the 2015 & on Crossrunner (other than the colour) i.e. do they fit the Crossrunner? The part numbers are very similar other than the last letter which I'm assuming is the colour code.

Thanks

Hi,
May be a bit late to reply on this but might be of use to someone else:
I have a 2019 Crossrunner (may have been manufactured in 2017)
I have just traced my Honda heated grip wiring to two terminal blocks that include other functions to the left hand side of the fuel tank.
You'll need to remove the plastic side panel that attaches to the side of the tank to expose the connections - fiddly.
I found this by needing to disconnect and bypass the O2 oxygen sensor. Thing is my heated grips stopped working at the same time.
Realising this some time later I removed the bypass and reconnected the oxygen sensor and the heated grips started working again.

Possibly just a means of saving wire by Honda? or maybe the grips are linked to the engine operation?

If I were wiring up aftermarket heated grips I think it would be much easier to find a good earth and a good +ve feed and avoid doing what Honda have done.
