I have never used any thread lock anywhere on Barkbusters and never had a problem at all.

Hello everyone. I ordered a Barkbusters VPS set for the CB500X 2020 model and have just received my order today. To my dismay, the packaging states that this fits the CB500X ('16-'18). The model number is BHG-055. Does anyone know if this might fit the 2020 model?

The outer fittings may fit as bars are 22mm at the end..19/20 model years taper from 28mm at the centre but maybe at the point where the inner clamps fit they taper enough..
Did you or the dealer select the kit fir your order? If they did I would unpack and try.
If you chose the kit number you probably should send back.
Earlier than 19/20 model years had 22mm bars with quite a rise in comparison.

Thanks Oyley. I ordered the kit off a seller on eBay. The description read 2019/2020 but had no reference to the model number. Then when it arrived  :005:

I've written to the seller... Hopefully he'll just take them back and refund me but it's still a pain and a disappointment. I was looking forward to receiving these  :003:

I think you need the BHG-081.  That's what I just received and installed on my '19. I bet the specs didn't change on the '20.

If you cant source them or the wait is too long, BHG-074-00-NP do fit as I have them on my 19my and the 20my bars are the same
No interference with screen or fairing plastics, my screen is in standard position.
