Default What brand "bark busters"??

Has anyone installed a set of "bark buster" style guards on their Wee? What brand and model?

I want something I can mount hand guards as well.

I agree with the other two. They're working nice on my bike.

Just installed Trackside aluminum handguards from Cycle Gear. $44.99
Under $70 shipped to Canada. Great deal, decent quality.

I also installed Tracksides a few weeks back and am very happy with quality and price. Posted a thread on the install: http://www.stromtrooper.com/dl650-20...-dl650al2.html

EVstrom is the man! Thanks to his great write-up, my trackside installation was a breeze. I did a little more dremeling on the brake side mount to give it clearance & hit it up with black paint. The tracksides are a cheap alternative. I plan to cover some of the holes with Sugru & reflective black tape to keep the wind off the fingers.
