Versatile full-wrap handguards that blend tough obstacle protection with moderate weather coverage.

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.

Need more wind protection? All VPS Handguards are compatible with the Barkbusters Storm plastics, giving you maximum protection from the elements and a reinforced backbone. Storm plastics are less suited to tight off-road singletrack use and are not compatible with supermoto skidplates or wind deflectors.

Review by mike
The pictures in the product display has no clutch or front brake levers. The instructions are not KLR specific and mostly didn't apply. I guess it's a KLR handlebar in the pic? But the factory handlebar has a 'D Ring' or wire loop on the clutch side, that wires and the choke cable reeve thru, IN THE WAY of clamping onto the bar, below the crossbar, so I bent mine. There wasn't the 2 LONGER bolts needed to use the existing Kawasaki weights with the Barkbusters. I tried everywhere to find those, no luck. Prolly if you buy the $50 weights offered? So I ended up using 1 each 1/2" spacer of the matching diameter between the barkbuster rib and the handlebar end, on each side, total 2 needed. To far away from the center of the bar, the clamp ends up on top of where the crossbar meets or too close in offsets the alignment of that clamp to where the rib is too low below the lever, even if you reverse the 2 sides, flip right to leftside instead. There is a very narrow spot to where all this will work. Thats why only 4 Stars. (Posted on 14-10-22)
