Has anyone put bark busters on...

Has anyone put bark busters over their levers? Wondering which model you used and modifications you had to make?

If you mean the Barkbusters brand they seem like the best option as they have many diff
ways to mount.

I want these, plan to order them soon. For some reason the stock handguards bug me looks wise. Twisted Throttle has a kit specifically for the VStrom, but I need to call them and get a different mounting kit because I have Pro Taper handlebars.

as soon as they get here and I get them on, will try and post pics.
I never liked the idea of having to cut off part of the levers to install real handguards.

Look at the KTM guards posted by Peter on 6.7.07 for some really nice guards. Lots of ideas there.
Those KTM's look great. I have a friend that works for KTM, I'm going to see if she can get them for me!

GrayWolf and I both have the Emgo Black on our Stroms. Not much for wind protection, but it will save your knuckles, bars, and levels in a get off. It also allows you to remove the PITA bar ends.

If I had it to do over again, I would have gone with the Acerbis RallyPros. The Emgo's are similar to the Acerbis, but the Acerbis have larger plastic coverage over the hands.
