CategoryLast UpdatedReviewI don't think you're going to notice a HUGE difference, but definitely an improvement. I give it 4 stars just because of price to improvement ratio.
CategoryLast UpdatedReviewAfter I crashed my bike trail riding, I bent the factory bars slightly, so I threw on these bars. They were a little hard to get used to at first, but I really like them now. I'm 6'3" so I wanted something a little taller and wider. I will say though, there was nothing wrong with the factory bars for me. I'd really give them a 4.5 out 5 stars, because it's not like they're a priority upgrade for the bike. I also threw a set of Spider Grips SLR open end grips on there and a set of Bark Busters while I was at it, too. This way my bars won't be bending anytime soon!
CategoryLast UpdatedReviewI love these handguards! I went through a Motorcycle Safety Program course here locally to get my motorcycle license, and the first thing I noticed was every one of their bikes had Barkbusters handguards (just the metal bracket- no plastic) on them. I figured wow, these bikes must get dropped a lot, and if they use these for their bikes, they've gotta be good enough for mine. I crashed my bike in May of 2013 and broke 2 ribs and in the process did a little bit of damage. The crash actually twisted the forks inside of the clamps, bent the handlebars, and broke the right turn signal housing. I consider that quite a bit considering my body took most of the abuse. Besides the hospital bills, it cost a bit after the price of the bars and the turn signal. I didn't want to go through that again if I dropped it or whatever. So threw these onto the new bars with a set of Spider Grip SLR open end grips and boy, do I love them. They came with the white wind deflectors which can be bolted on in two different positions to protect your hands, plus the red of the plastic guard is like a perfect match to Honda's red. Also, you have the option to get protective sliders that go onto the ends of the handguards so if you put it down on pavement you can just change the sliders out. I can attest to the strength of these as back in August of 2013 I hit sand in a sharp turn and laid the bike down. I was absolutely amazed- it scraped up the metal bracket of the guard a little bit and just put a little scratch on the white plastic over the muffler. No broken turn signals, no messed up mirror, no broken controls. Definitely a 5 out of 5 stars!
