I've heard of this problem. Motocrossers speak of it. The only trouble is, they've not only saved my levers many times, but for the amount of time I hit trees, I've saved myself from broken fingers, and inadvertently hitting clutch and/or brake, and thereby outofcontrol probably a hundred times already. So what do you do? pick your poison.

You know, over the years and involvement in MX, desert racing, enduros, street riding, and trials I have never ever heard of anybody getting injured by handguards. Not saying it can't happen, but I've never heard of it. On the other hand, they've saved me lots of pain from big bugs, cactus, trees, and rocks when I've gotten a little off line (rare but it happens ) or got caught in someone's roost and they've saved me from fives and crashes in trials.

And I bet Steve Rapp wished he'd had them going into T1 at Road A a few years ago. http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...4395906954225#

I've actually seen it in person. 1988 Delaware Enduro, my buddy tried to use a root to jump a creek like he'd seen a better rider do. Buddy came up short and augered into the far bank. On impact, he basically punched the barkbuster as his throttle hand came off of the grip and broke a couple of bones in his hand.

That said, I still run barkbusters on my dirt bikes and have thought about adding them to my trials bike. I run them as low (rotated forward) as possible and feel good about the trade-off between lever/hand protection and the risk of injury from the barkbuster. YMMV!

Handguards and broken wrists

The solution to hand guards causing broken wrists is the "flag" style guard that is open at the end. There are several varieties of these and they are the only style that is legal for use in MX. Set up correctly they will protect the levers and your hands but will deflect away if you hand slides between them and the handle bars.

I use the hand guards on my WR250. I usually use my WR250 to do the bushwacking and trail breaking. One day I decided to try and break some new trail on the trials bike. I rode for almost 30 minutes before I figured out what was going on. Every little branch or little sapling I was trying to run over would grab one of my levers and pull it. Having something grab your front brake or clutch while you are riding will throw you off.
