They look great on the bike brand new, but that’s it.....
I was actually kind of excited to get some hand protection while on the trail. They do absolutely nothing but get in the way of your levers and block small branches... Junk, the metal doesn’t extend over your grips and its just plastic than crumples up on your first fall.
I didn't want the bark busters so I went with these. They worked great and held up for years. I crashed a lot and had no problem with them conforming back to original. I believe I've had them for 5 years now and could use new plastic pieces but I have yet to break the clamps.
I bought these and put them on my bike the first time that I went down on the side on a hill climb it broke. i know you shouldn't crash but it happens. my other bike has the full wrap bark busters and they have never broke no matter what i did.
I was worried about buying non-machine specific guards for my Honda TRX450R even though I have a set of Taper fat bars. But these fit perfectly with little adjustment to my controls. Great product and handle bar guards make your quad look trick!
I puchased these guards for my raptor 660 which is used for cross country racing and riding and for the most part these work great. They dont offer the mud protection I need but they do a decent job of deflecting wind and debris. These handguards also accent the machines lines. 4 stars
the hand gaurds worked well in jagger bushes and light brush as i expected. dont expect the hand gaurds to keep your hands warm.(not big enough)...also, i was little disappointed that the yellow hand guards didnt match the suzuki yellow.
These really are great hand guards. They are very stiff and the aluminum mount makes them stiffer and more secure than the Acerbis Uniko (they're kinda floppy). Some bush twigs still find their way to my fingers but the shield extenders will fix that. Also the mounts position the guards to make enough room for the levers and your hands. They stay nice and out of the way.
