    Yes that's the correct kits. The VPS version has smaller plastic for more air flow, the Storm version is larger and blocks lots of wind. Same basic kit, just the plastic covers differ. I just run the Storm plastic year round, but on a hot day you could take the big plastic cups off for more wind or put the smaller VPS plastic on. I like the protection in the rain so the Storm versions is my preference.

    I am sorry to bother you again. I am on the Twisted throttle website and there is the Storm and the VPS. Not sure what one you have. I see you bought the storm plastics but not sure if you bought the VPS with the storm plastics. here are the links

    Thanks for the quick reply. So the barkbusters do fit on the Tusk handlebars? That's a relief. Thank you.

    I'm using the BarkBuster hand guards for the V-Strom, it has the built in weights, extra wide back bones to cover the levers completely and will fit any bar. Twisted Throttle is the importer and source for the correct model. I went with the Storm plastic covers and they almost block all wind, very protective. I've given up on cheap guards, not worth the hassle to me. Rather have real tough protection and good fit. The hardware is solid and the brackets tighten up and stay put once you use thread locker. I would buy the BB again.

    Hey, sorry to bother you but I have a quick question.

    I read on an older post(a month ago) that you have the Tusk t-10 ATV bars, which I just put on my '14 Vstrom and wondering what handguards are you using? The inner diameter of the bars is smaller than the stock, so IDK if the barkbuster storms will fit. Are you using the Tusk handguards and if so how are they?

    Thank you,
    Steve
