Hand guards

Recommended Posts

I have pro taper EVO bars

I'm looking for a set of heavy duty hand guards . I often find myself and my bike on our side.

I have right now some acerbis brush guards . They look nice but if you drop you're bike they will give and bend you're brake/clutch hand levers plus I had to buy a cheap adaptor kit

I could use some help here

Thanks

I just bought these https://shop.enduroeng.com/cgi-bin/commerce.cgi?preadd=action&key=50-5135S don't know how good they are yet. I didn't get the plastic, i didn't feel like spending $25 that i will just make. Before i used Moose racing, and I can vouch for them. they have taken some pretty nasty hits, and still look the same. I have hit trees so hard that it bent the bars before it did anything to them. I got the EE BB because of the way the mount is shaped, i want that extra room between the clutch and brake lines, even more now since i am all hydraulic now.

Sorry to hijack your thread, but does anyone know where to find the mounts where you can attach it to your upper fork bolt/where you triple clamps grab your forks?

I recently tried a pair of the generic 1-1/8 bark buster type guards from Cycle-Gear, they are regularly on sale for $20 and come with all hardware. To my surprise they are stout as hell, though they did require minor massaging to fit properly, wasn't bad though. I plan on bolting some $18 spoilers to them.

I'm 100% happy with my cheapo's, but I'd go with Enduro Engineering if you feel the need to blow big cash.

I'd have to agree that the cheep ones are very good! I know people who use the $40 tusk ones and the work perfect. I'm going to try EE guards because the seem to cover more area up and down.

I have 2 sets of those. They've done the job they were purchased to do. They have done the job my Cycras do on a 3rd bike. They are a very good bang for the buck.

Promoto billets fastway line has mounts like that. I am running fastways on my KTM. I have ones that replace the upper bar clamps. The shields break pretty easy, I am running cycra shields on them now.
