I put on some Barkbusters today, easy job. The one tip I would pass along is to use a tie wrap and tie the lever to the handlebar so you have better access to the two screws on the back of the handguard.

I just put the plastic on before attaching the bar. Lol

I really like my storms. I have had a couple low speed drops off road and the only damage was scratches to the plastic

I've used both. The stockers are not bad for wind protection but that's about it. They won't protect the controls even in a standing tip over situation.

Doh! That would have been even easier....

I have the Storm covers and love 'em so far.

Same here, and I agree. The OEM handguards offer good wind protection but won't protect the bike.

I replaced them with Barkbusters.

Have you ever used the OEM hand guards? If so, how do you rate them in terms of wind blocking compared to the BB's?
I can't compare, but my OEMs do a great job of wind blocking.

I have both. BB's are definitely better, but they cost x2 the price of oem's. One nice feature about the BB's is that the plastic guard is easily removed for hot weather riding.
