These are probably not as buff as the barkbusters, but might be OK....anyone have them? I'd like to get something installed before it gets too cold.

They will help keep the wind off in Winter.
But not protect your hands from injury.
The Right side mounts differently then the left.
It vibrates with the engine.
I glued a weight on mine to try and dampen it.
Really, they are pretty flimsy!!    :169:

Thanks...I figured they were not top quality. The barkbusters are not much more $...probably $30 more

I have a set come with my 2013 CB500X with a pair. I have found that it does keep some of the elements back. My gloves are drier and feel a warmer compared to when I ride my 125cc without any hand guards at all. They offer to crash protection and I've always thought about changing them just haven't got round to it due to cash

When I bought my bike, I had the dealer install these, and after 12,000 miles, they are working fine. The will block wind and bugs and hail, but aren't going to keep your hands warm in cold weather. In other words, they are not a substitute for winter gloves and/or heated gloves. For cold weather riding, I recommend a set of heated glove inserts that wire directly to the battery, which work very well.

Barkbusters and heated grips. Keep your hands warm and dry and very protected from bumps.

Yep...Ive got the BBs on order. No grip warmers yet. A friend says I need a tap into the battery for a heated vest. Im not so keen on riding if its that cold, tho.
