Default Handguards for 2016-

Hi

I'm looking for a recommendation for handguards please. For the new model SV.

I already have Oxford Heated Grips, which have the wires on the inside of the grip and those need to turn. So I think handguards would need to be the bar end only ones.


I want them to block wind, more than for crash protection, so generic/budget is fine.


Most of the ones I've found want to attach on the inside too. Oxford have some but they are both pricey and ugly... Barkbuster Storm looks fine, but 85....

Thanks

I fitted ones from a DL650 V Strom. I think I had to give both sides some minor surgery (trimming) to get them to fit, moreso the throttle side than the clutch.

I used the 57300-27831-291 but there are a couple of others and I couldn't identify the differences. I probably chose these because they were on offer at 50 ish (18 months ago).

The DL guards use a different bar end spacer for one attachment point and the lever pivot as the other so I don't know how that would affect your grips. I bought heated gloves instead of grips.

Acerbis makes some quite nice but they're also a bit pricey, on the other hand you can always look for the Chinese copy on ali

You might not like the cheap-and-cheerful ones I fitted to my Curvy,

10 ish.






As they are universal had to do a but of pushing,bending and a little fettling of the metal arm bracket to get them to fit but nothing hard to do.

Thanks guys.

I saw lots looking like those riff raff. They look ok, great for the price. but I think they'd interfere with the other kit (or too much work). I don't think the other suzuki ones will just plug in. Good tip but no joy on ali express. but by searching x-tarmac on eBay, rather than acerbis there are a couple of cheaper acerbis style ones. Might go for those. I thought there would be more about. Plenty with different fixings, but not bar end only. Cheers

These?

I have bigger handguards on one of my bikes, TBH the wind protection is not brilliant. For real cold weather, heated grips and muffs are brilliant.

The grips cables wont cause any hassle with any type of hand guard.

try alchemy, i have some alchemy bar end only ones on my 2016 AL7, the bar adaptor was a bit small and I had to modify, also had to space them out slightly to stop them interfering with brake lever, they have LED daylight running lights included if you want to connect them up, I didn't bother because I have a couple of 10watt alchemy LED spotlights mounted on handlebars which make me highly visible ( https://www.alchemyparts.co.uk/unive...-trikes-quads/ I just made a flat bracket to fit under handlebar mirror mounting and bolted bracket straight on - will post a picture if you want one - also got a handlebar switch that matches the other Suzuki stuff spot on https://www.alchemyparts.co.uk/wirin...eatured&page=2 ).

they have plenty of choice anyway. if you hover mouse pointer over the images more information including dimensions is revealed - very useful

I've gone for the Oxfords. If they are particularly good or bad, I'll report back. Thanks

Did you get these:





I'll be curious to see how much wind protection you get compared to these:
