Barkbusters without removing stock weights

Hi all This subject has probably been done to death,but here goes ...I have bought Sm Motech /barrkbuster handguards..and have stock honda heated grips..Question is,,, Can I mount the guards using the old bar weights (ie just screwing though the handguard and into the bar),instead of dragging out the honda weight and maybe damageing my heated grips...Like I say,,its been asked before,I just can,t find it....cheers

Yes, that works.



Here is from my Sunday ride with a Pyndon sticker and my skidplate installed



You can see the Neduro sticker on the back. None of Jonah's stickers left.

Very nice work Dale! Seen your work on some other forums!

Very nice NC you have been building.

Any plans for any more skidplates?

Thanks, I am going to put TKC's on this spring. I have them on my 650L and really like them. Dale, did you put a hugger on yours? I was looking at attaching a rubber mudflap like the dirt bikes use.

You know it's good to see this rather than another 100Hp you can't use even more of the time.

You can use good MPG 100% of the time.

I can appreciate this kind of engineering just as much as the 200Hp per CC unobtainium piston stuff.

The best thing about this stuff is it's cheap to buy, cheap to run and probably lasts a long time as well. Not only that but Honda seem to have a sales success with this bike as well. All good.

Just imagine if a MPG war broke out.

Hi -

> Here is from my Sunday ride with a Pyndon sticker and my skidplate installed.

Very nice work.

I read on Ridermagazine.com that the NC700X (DCT?) weighs 545 pounds wet. With your racks and bags, what does your bike weigh?

Thanks.

Rick

HONDABIKEPRO has proven the bikes can do the job if needed. I travel enough two tracks to need the tires and the skidplate. On long extended off road trips, I will use my XR650. The NC provides me with a bike that is comfortable to ride on the pavement, gravel and a two track. Serious trails will require a better tool.

Could you provide some details as to what mods you've done to your bike? Is that the honda light bar? What engine guard is that? Are those TKC80's? What skid plate is that?

Would be nice to have all this in one master list/entry, as I assume you'll be asked these questions as you post more and more pics in the future.

Thanks!

PS--good looking Jeep too!
