    Does anyone know if Barkbuster Storms can be fitted to Fast Flexx bars?

    We currently have Flexx Pivoting Handguard Mounts with Cycra Handguards, Frames and Inserts.

    Looking to possibly swap the Cycra handguards out for Barkbuster Storm and wonder if anyone had done this?

    If they can be changed the Cycra guards and frame with be for sale.

    Many thanks Andi

    If you keep the BRP drop mounts you currently have I don't see why not. HDB makes a great set you might want to check out. Personally I won't buy anything else.

    Given the HDB mounting, I'm pretty sure they'd be functionally incompatible with the flex bars. They'll prevent the flex bars from flexing.

    I have this set up on my (0Ktm 500.

    Use plastic delrin washers for the inside mount location. Pivots fine.

    Have you tried calling the folks at Fasstco? Always very helpful with questions and suggestions.

    Why the desire to switch? What's the benefit of the BB over the Cycra? Just preference?
