Barkbusters for 2018 bike.....
« on: November 06, 2018, 11:23:48 AM »
Hi Guys,
So, cold misty morning the other day, 180 miles, gloves stayed dry, but started to feel the windchill :190:. Decided I need to get some protection as it ain't going to get any warmer!. Muffs would suffice, but no good if I come off, so looking for a set of Barkbusters for my 2018 bike (apparently the older 2013-15 ones don't fit)

Ideally with the storm guard as opposed to VPS.

awaiting.... :030:
If it aint broken, it will break, best learn how to fix it!

Rally Raid sell >2017 CB500x Barkbusters:

I bought mine from them, haven't fitted them yet though.

Storm/VPS guards are available on their site too.

Thanks Marv, yes, they are available there and others, but my budget, well thats a different story, so, looking for a used / unloved / no longer needed set....

Plus you would have to buy the storm guards separately.
I have barkbuster guards on the bike and for winter remove the storm plastic guard and slide on Oxford Rainseal muffs.

If you find some (used) barkbuster guards, 'muffs' are still an option:

Thanks,
Thats news to me, could be just the thing for winter, just need to sort out the dosh  :003:

Strange how the whole point of biking was to save on my stoooopid fuel bill each month, sometimes >600  :005:

But now looking at spending at least that with other bits etc if bought new!
