Thread index, No Bark Busters?

Yo David, how you doing? How's the bike coming along?

I am looking for new barkbusters for my soon to be OJ LC-$ and want color coordinated bling!

Last year The Creepster had a write up on Barkbusters and after searching, Saw that your Acerbis worked!, but couldn't find Creepers post. With 11.01 avg posts per day, it's tough finding any of his pearls of wisdom.

I checked the Websters un-abridged Thread index and ????????

So who has the best BB's?

Hope your feeling better and better everyday.

Heya Bob! The bike is at a shop in the Valley, they are ordering parts and... well I am in no hurry anyways so probably get it next month.

Creeper's thread?
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=76936


he went Moose, but really what he probably was after was guards with an aluminum backbone. Acerbis Rallye Pro II guards have a backbone too.

Maybe this will be the bark buster thread for the index? Links folks? Post em!

Yep... Aluminum loops with replaceable (and cheep) plastic handguard covers. The Acerbis Multiplo handguards look pretty nice too... a little spendy for a consumable item, but pretty none the less.

Handguards seem to rate right up there with oil and tires and shit for personal "Get what I got... or your a major asshat" hard-on type items. Don't have a clue why that is, considering several of the brands are all the same with a different sticker on 'em.

Best rule here is to get what ever blows yer' skirt up and you can afford to destroy. I mean, that is what they're for... to take the hit instead of your levers/hands/grips, etc.

My favorite for years have been Enduro Engineering's offering. Evidently KTM itself likes them too, as the KTM Hardparts handguards are made by EE.

It's old school. Big aluminum hoop, and a replaceable plastic hand guard. I have them on all my KTM's and my Motozilla GS conversion. I've whacked my 620RXC into more crap than I care to recall, and they're still there, doing the do, and keeping my mitts safe.

Cheap, too. About $70 gets you a set of hoops and plastic guards.

Funny you'd bring up the EE handguards GP. The aluminum loops and mounting hardware are exactly the same as Moose, only the plastic and the way they attach is a little different. The MSR loops and mounts are samo samo too.

EE stuff.


Moose stuff.


MSR stuff.

And the MSR plastic parts are identical to the EE plastic.

See what I mean? And I think there are a few other brands that are the same as the above.

I'd noticed that in the catalogs, so I ordered the EE bars, Moose Plastic, and MSR Magura clamps cause that way I saved $40.

busters

Are the pics what you boys call'' barkbusters'' over there?
have you no trees?
have you no arms?
I Hope these are only a small selection for your knuckles sake.
we have trees. and arms. and kengarooos. Some dropbears too.
adventuremoto.com.au has barkbusters. real ones. 640 proof ones.
Although, the ktm standard ones we get on the 530's out here seem to be slightly tougher even though they are plastic only, they dont bend in and lock up your levers when the bike has a sleep.

have fun.

Well since everyone is welcome to like what they like ......... here's what I like.

Highway Dirtbikes design handguards designed and made by theantipaul.



They're not just rebranded X-brand......

Yup, they're actually usable too.......

On a side note I did actually manage to break one of those KTM/Moose jobbies.........
