HDB’s Ultimate Handguards and 10% discount

Code named Big Bike Beefy Billet Bars. These guards are made with big bikes and big abuse in mind.

So how can we say these are the Ultimate Handguards, grab your calipers and take a little walk with me.

Lets start at the bar ends. Just like our standard sets you get a tap and threaded inserts for the bar end attachment, by far the most secure and strongest method.



Now look at the bar end boss on the guards, how many times have you chewed up your grips with those big name guards. You may wish to change your grips from time to time, but this will be the last time you replace your grips on account of dumping your bike.



Now lets compare side by side the bar designs, from the bar end to the bend is by far the most venerable area for damage in a crash.

The numbers speak for themselves. Well over ¼” more material than Cycra or Acerbis where you need it most on those 400+lb bikes.. And we know it’s stronger, it takes almost 20 tons more to form them.



HDB vs Cycra



HDB vs Acerbis



HDB vs Cycra



Cycra at the bend



Acerbis at the bend



HDB's at the bend



Check out the hand protection on HDB guards, there is no comparison, you not only get a bar beefier than any others, in that area you get well over twice the material and twice coverage.



Even when you get to the inner end mounts, again over 1/8” more material.



On a test bike



Remember you don’t need a big bike to mount these and when combined with our mirrors, top clamps and accessories, this system stands alone.

Enter "advrider01" at checkout for a 10% discount on all HDB products.

Would the "BMW Handguards" work on an Airhead GS?

I have a 95 R100GS and have been looking for some handguards

That might be a tough one. To my knowledge we've never fitted an R100GS, but the photos I've been able to find look like there could be enough clearance.

A photo of your bike would help a lot. I'll need to know a few specs to get it right, the bolt pattern on the top clamp, because we'll be replacing it, the width and rise of those bars, it looked pretty high and that will determine the length of the guards I'll send out with the set.

A '95 R100GS might be a little outside the scope, but we can give it a shot.

Can the mirrors be added at a later date(ordered alone) if I change my mind?

Can the beefy handguards be upgraded to LED turn signals (not an upgrade option on that page) without having to buy both sets of plastics?

Oh... and thanks for the discount. I'm looking forward to placing my order. Sooooo many decisions

Yes, you can get the mirrors at a later date.

Damn, I'd say I'll get that fixed tonight, but I can't. I'll have that option on there tomorrow, thanks.

Just got back from 15 days of riding in Baja with my new HDB handgaurds and mirrors on my 950 Adventure "test bike" (pictured above). Everything worked flawlessly. I have to admit, I thought that the mirrors wouldn't be very effective on the road sections, but I was completely wrong; I could see behind me very well with unobstructed view, and running at very high speeds in windy conditions, the mirrors didn't move. I'm even more impressed with them after this trip. Nice stuff!

Submounts and HDB top clamps

Looking for compatibility info on 2007 TE610.

Want to install a stabilizer (brand TBD) on a submount and need to know which combo of submounts and HDB top clamps are known to work together (TE610 in particular for me), if any known. Looking at PT Concepts and Motosportz submounts to start with. I saw one case of a KTM PT submount paired with a HDB top clamp on a TE610 with a Scotts damper.

Thanks,

- Mike

Hey Mike, I have yet to make one for a 610, but I have it drawn up for a Scotts. I'd be willing to bet that a Motosportz Submount would be no problem at all. It's sandwiched between the top triple and the lower handlebar clamps, so shouldn't affect the fitment, just raise the bars. If you have a pic of the KTM/PT setup, shoot it over to me I'd like to see it.

for the customers.... how is the mirror vibration compared to your stock mirrors on your bike previously (if you had stock mirrors on your bike)? I like the short compact stalks and think that would help minimize vibration but I also think that moving the mirrors out to the bar ends would increase vibrations transmitted to the mirrors.. so I'm just curious..

I would love to know if that car behind me on the highway is a cop or not.. With my stock mirrors I can never tell until I pull in the clutch for a couple of seconds and let things settle down... Who has time for all that?? NOT ME
