Get the Barkbusters with the Storm plastic
The BB's are very tough. Mine were virtually unaffected by a 75-foot slide down the highway when I hit a deer while going about 45 mph -- only the plastic was ground down, and not even all the way through. Also they mount up perfectly if you get the ones for the DLK.
As noted, the advice to save your money for replacement levers was misguided. I carry spare levers with me at all times, but it's possible to break more than just the lever itself in a fall or wreck if the entire area isn't protected, and that happens when you're out in the boondocks, good luck.
