How do you like the barkbusters so far and the Kaoko? I'm thinking of going with this for my next farkle.

lilmonkey 10-12-2010 07:52 PM

I love it.

First bike that I've ever had "cruise"...my wrists aren't what they used to be.

I'll have it on every bike from now on.

Highly recommended.

So they go on without and modification at all?

Nice... I want to do this mod as well. I am running without. Thanks for posting.

thought i would add a shot w/ the stock handguards. only difference is that it is the throttle lock w/ the stock handguards only has the washer and the knurled part. it does not come w/ replacement bar end weights as posted on the TT site.

one thing that did surprise though, is that it does probably takes less than a 1/4 turn to lock the throttle in place. for some reason i assumed it would be a full turn?! it still however allows you to roll off the throttle with it in the locked position.

will post later when i test with the warmers turned on.

I installed a set yesterday and no modification (beyond removing stock handlebar weights) required.

Even without the super pix (far superior to instal instructions) the job is very easy!

I'm going to install Bark Busters with the kaoko in the next few weeks.
It's a real bummer that the barends are so wimpy. :cry
I was wondering if anyone thinks it's a good idea to duct tape some wheel weights to the back of the bark buster deflector.

If you use flat wheel weights and cover them over with black duct tape, it shouldn't look that bad, assuming you have black plastic deflectors. Plus it will be on back of the plastic bark buster deflector, so who cares?

Would this work on reducing the buzziness introduced by the lighter bar ends? The weights wouldn't be directly attached to the handlebar, but I don't think that's an issue.

What is the difference in weight between the oem bar ends and the kaoko/bark buster ones?
The wheel weights above are 1/2 oz (14.17 grams), so if the difference is huge and you need 100 wheel weights, this idea wouldn't work. There isn't enough room to stick them on.

This setup should withstand the elements just fine, I think. The duct tape should hold those suckers on.

I've seen examples where people do a tap and die for the oem bar end. That won't work for the right-side bar end, where the kaoko is.

Good idea? Should I just STFU and GTFO? :bluduh
I think this might work. I can't do any fancy custom fab stuff or crazy drilling. Sad, but true. That link to harbor freight should have been a clue. Zing! :wink:

BTW, I don't think the f800gs is buzzy at all. It's much less buzzy than my yamaha fz6. It would just be nice to restore the original bar end weight.

The photo from the OP looks good. I just looked at my kaoko instructions. The plastic sleeve goes under the throttle part, then the knobby wheel, then the bark buster end.


Disregard my other stupid post above. I'm going to just fill my handlebars with lead shot. I might as well since I'll have the bar ends apart.

You're Out of Order!
 
Well, don't feel bad. I'll be making a trip out to the garage, too. And it has worked so well (big sigh and :cry ).

The kaoko meant to be used with bark busters is here:

The paper instructions I got with the kaoko definitely had it the other way. I'll just ignore those....

Mistake
 
And I thought that you had caught the first mistake that I made this year!

Record INTACT! Only 28, ah, I mean 29 more days to go!
