DL1000 HAND GUARD KIT

Post  ruddleto on Fri 07 Jul 2017, 1:49 pm

Has anyone fitted the DL1000 2014 onwards ,handguard kit to their GSX!@%) FA?

I have holeshot bar risers on mine,does anyone know if you can lock the steering when bar risers are fitted along with the DL1000 hand guards?

Thanks

I think @jimcoleman fitted hand guards. I know they were genuine Suzuki but unsure what bike. Cant answer the second part of the question (maybe I didn't answer the first part either Smile)

I also did . They work well but you still need heated grips to be comfortable .

Come on guys H.T.F.U  Razz lol! any body would think it's cold .......... Laughing 

I had heated grips for a while on a previous bike..............they were nice , but the hand guards would have made it better by keeping the wind chill off .

Dunno mate , in a previous job with early starts  with temperatures nearing zero @ 100kmph plus  , the drops of water on the bottom of  my mirrors were ice on the way to work....................but yes for the most part we are spoiled . cheers

Thankfully , age  has now given me the luxury of later starts at work ( so it's a lot warmer ) and the ability to be a grumpy old prick  if they don't like it  lol!
-3 .............still bloody cold pale

That's almost cold enough to turn off your freezer to keep your food frozen........... Shocked
( as a point of interest , has it always got that cold there at this time of year ? )

BarkBuster Blizzard are the go. 
Best weather protection of any guard I have seen. 
Soft construction, so deform at full lock if fairing interference is an issue. 
Fit and remove with one bolt. Under five minutes to install. 
Used in conjunction with hot grips, I can run summer gloves all year long.

DL1000 HAND GUARD KIT

Post  ruddleto on Sun 09 Jul 2017, 9:27 am

I already have Barkbuster Storm hand guards ,Oxford heated grips and 5 Heated gloves.

The DL ones look bigger ie protect more of the hand.

Just ordered them on ebay.....

We'll soon see if they work!!!!!!!!!!

Fairly sure the DL guards prevent you from turning the bars far enough to engage the steering lock
