Hand Guards

Post  Jimcoleman on Sat 30 Jul 2016, 3:16 pm

A while ago Kewig showed us that Vstrom hand guards fitted the GSF/GSX 1250 but you had to buy bits from the 1000 and the 650 to make it fit, whilst i liked the look i was a lazy bugger and never got around to get them.

I also looked at the Barkbusters cloth ones, but i found them to be less pleasing to the eye, ( yes i know yours look great on your bike but on mine they looked shit ok).

So wondering around Canberra Motorcycles i noticed that the new VStrom 1000 had guards fitted. So after some further inspection and a $125 later, a trip home, 15 minute fit time Wahla









Now a close mate of mine #tag seriously questioned my sexuality !  Yes i may not have come out but my pinkies are very warm and that what counts, i am also thinking my gloves will stay drier and and the bike is more aerodynamic so i shouldn't need to put it on the Dyno

So one Suzuki Vstrom Hand Guard kit $125 15 minutes to fit and i highly recommend them if you are a Tourer or commuter

Honestly, they look better than I would have ever expected bark busters to look like on a GSX, nice job JC
