This is a great product I'm sure everyone will agree. Motosport. as always, got the order to me lightning fast. They usually have it shipped within hours. Amazing people and I love ordering from your site!!
I bought these to go on my CR250 with CR High Bends. They bolted right up and have handled a lot of abuse! They fit great and keep you from smashing you hand into a tree. A must have for any woods rider.
These Bark busters have taken a few spills out on the trails and are doing the job perfectly. Buried my bars a foot deep in the mud last weekend and levers still work great and no bent bars.Love these bark busters i have them on 2 bikes. fast shipping too.
Since there was no name brand on the title of the hand guards, I thought they would fit the stock 2003 450 exc. When they came, I realized that my handle bars taper as you get closer to the center. the mount was so small, I couldn't even grind out the middle. Other than that they seem like well made and light hand guards.
I have these installed on all my bikes. You can't beat em for the price and man they will take a beating! My son always rides way above his skill level and these things have saved me tons of money on levers and they look great too! Must have for woods riding!
The bar mounts don't fit well at all on Pro Taper Evo's. The cutout is too small of a diameter. I pulled some mounts off another bike with Pro Tapers and Moose handguards to make sure I wasn't crazy and indeed the Moose have a bigger cutout and better fit (and I wasn't that impressed with the fit of the Moose when I put them on years ago). Had to take a Dremel tool to grind the cutout. It fits now but will probably twist easy since I couldn't do a smooth grind and it won't have as much surface area to clamp with. If you cut your bars down you will really have problems. I realize these are probably made in China but come on guys how difficult can it be to make mounts for one model of handlebar?
These are made pretty well, dont like the fact of how cheap the hardware is. Too easy to strip out the bolts. Had to grind away a good amount of metal on the mounts to make them fit the handlebars. Where the mounts meet the crossbar pad I had to grind away the corner about 1/4 inch.
I bought a set for 7/8 bars and they were perfect but these for the 1-1/8 bars dont fit well. They point up instead of level. the problem is not enough bend where the guard attaches to the mounts. then the bar inserts were too big (maybe the inside of my tag bars are too small?). so after filing them down an filing the inside of my bars and bending the guards a little they fit pretty good. Could have sent them back because motosport is great, but i wanted to make them fit because its the only handguard i will use.
You kindly advised that my KTM oversize bars will require the 1-1/8 size fitting on these; but these bars taper to 22mm (7/8") at the grip section. I assume this means I need the standard handguards (to fit the 22mm bar end) and the 1-1/8 fitting kit for the other end of the bars? Is there any way I can order a combination of the two?
I have aftermarket KTM handlebars (part number 5480200130004), which taper from standard 22.15mm at the hand grip to 28.5mm at the bar clamps.
I'd like to fit these MSR guards - will they fit my handlebars?
No this kit would only fit standard 7/8" handlebars. Your bars would require mounts for 1-1/8" oversize handlebars.
Here is a link to the kit that would fit your bars:
