I've always thought that Bark Busters were the standard for this kind of thing. Barkbusters - BHG46.2-NP

You can also include a Kaoko Throttle Lock with these handguards.

PS - Barkbusters is the brand name but like Kleenex the name has been adopted to describe the product.

I ordered some Barkbusters (the real thing) from TT yesterday (and a top box,and gerbing battery harness)...would have loved to get the throttle lock also, but by then I was out of $$... one thing at a time I guess..
