Barkbuster handguards and using a Kaoko throttle lock

I have the 2015 650 vstrom and want to put Barkbusters handguards on. I also use the Kaoko Throttle lock. Which model of Barkbusters di you all use? Single point mount . Double point mount? What was the installlation like? Any pictures ? Where did you get them for the best price? Thanks

I've got Barkbusters with a Kaoko Throttle lock and Oxford heated grips on my 2015 650 EXP. They were on the bike when I bought it so I can't tell you anything about installation but the Barkbusters are double point mount and can be found here.

I know that the setup on my bike was purchased at twistedthrottle.com and up until a few months ago, they had a package deal with all three above listed components, ready to install on a 650 V-Strom -- I don't see that package listed on their site anymore.

I'll take a photo of my set up tomorrow and post it here if that'll help.

I installed Barkbusters VPS 2 point mount and kaoko throttle lock on my '16 650. It was pretty straightforward to install them.
If you already have a kaoko I don't believe it will work, they offer different versions for specific build outs, you need the version that is made for barkbusters.

What he said...different model.

Since you have to change ..consider the GoCruise 2 with the tension wheel

Installed mine over the weekend and all I had touse was longer M6x 4 1/4" hex head bolts that I got from Amazon in a pack of tem. So if any of you need a bolt, contact me andthey are free for a fellow member!
