Maximum wind and rain protection for street and adventure-touring bikes! Storm Open-ended Backbone is designed specifically for street bikes and mounted to a single point on the handlebars.
Storm handguards have an aerodynamic design and a larger profile that wraps around the hands to offer excellent wind and weather protection. The wide profile is great for street riding and open trails.
Available with black or chrome plastics. Chrome plastics are not recommended for off-road use.
Barkbusters handguards were first manufactured in 1984 and now have over 28 years of motorcycle industry experience and riding enthusiasm. That history means Barkbusters has what it takes to produce the finest handguards available on the market today. Barkbusters integrates a hardened aluminum backbone with a stylish, replaceable plastic guard to create a truly functional handguard. No more busted levers or knuckles! In the unlikely event that you break a part of the handguard, every piece is replaceable.
Not compatible with variable-height wind deflector or supermoto skidplates.
Fits 7/8" tubular handlebars using a two-piece clamp assembly which attaches to the bars just inside of the hand controls. There is no mounting point on the end of the handlebars.
F650 CS Scarver - Guards will touch screen on full lock. Requires drilling additional hole in mounting bracket to move the guard closer to the controls.
