    SpeedStar V-Strom frame guards, triple-clamp guards, New and improved Headlight masks and fork guards.

    I have added these tank guards to my V-Strom product offering. They are sized perfectly to the rear tank area just above the seat. Same material as the masks. They are $20 delivered. They go on very easily and can be removed later if needed.
    My Paypal and email is: drcroix@aol.com
    Thanks for the support.

    I first made these for my bike because I was concerned about scratching the frame by the footpeg area on my black '05 Strom so I designed and cut these protectors on my Plotter table at work. I was really pleased with how it turned out and thought other owners may be interested in them too.
    <o:p></o:p>
    After people here on the forum got the frame guards, I had requests for a
    triple-clamp protector and lower fork guards as well and added them to the offering.
    Then came the Headlight masks. What is next? Let me know if you want something custom.
    <o:p></o:p>
    The material is 12mil thick 3M protective film, available in black or Carbon fiber look or dark tint as used in the headlight masks.

    If you would like any of these, please email me at: drcroix@aol.com

    The frame guards are:
    $20.00 in carbon fiber look or black.
    I also have a larger version that covers the lower frame area and extends up and over the bend and extends up to the recessed area on the frame.
    These larger ones will be $25 in black.
    <o:p></o:p>
    Headlight masks are:
    $25 in headlight specific dark tint for the four piece kit
    <o:p></o:p>
    The triple-clamp protectors are:
    $15.00 in carbon fiber look or black.
    The 650 and 1000 have different triple-clamps so I need to know which you
    have and what color you want.
    <o:p></o:p>
    The lower fork guards are:
    $12.00 in black.
    <o:p></o:p>
    If you want all four parts or some combination of them, I will discount the price. Lets talk.
    <o:p></o:p>
    These are delivered prices in the states.
    Overseas shipments may be a few dollars more for shipping.

    Here are the triple-clamp guards for the 650 and 1000. The first one on the bike is an older pattern. The new pattern is the smaller print.

    I just bought a set of the headlight masks and the triple clamp protector. I really like the way the masks change the bike. It just seems so much less surprised now! I always thought that the silly stretched headlights made the bike look all out of proportion. Lots more dignified now. The masks are of an opaque material, really heavy duty. I have put lots of decals on before and have never seen adhesive like this, I suspect that they are not coming off on their own! The fit was great, but you really need to FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS that Devin sends with the masks. He knows whereof he speaks.

    The triple clamp protector fits very nicely too and looks good. I have to get the frame guards, as me boots are scuffing the frame a bit.

    got your frame, fork & 3 clamp protectors which i love.
    question about the headlight mask.
    does it cut out any light output?
    is the material completely dark (like your black guards) or partial like your pics?

    Hi Bill, The headlight masks are all black now. They do not block any light output as they are above the lense on the top area that extends up and out. I also incude a small strip for the bottom portion that you may or maynot choose to use. This would bloack a small amount of light. I have it on mine and have not noticed any difference from before without it.

    Let me know if you have any other questions or would like to try a pair.
    Thanks again! Devin

    I can report that after a summer of riding, the headlight masks look the same as the day I put them on. No peeling, no bubbling. Bike still looks great.
    The only bad thing.....summer's about over.

    Got my package from Devin (super fast shipping) and installed everything except the headlight masks so far.
    Excellent product and they look great.

    Thanks Devin,

    I've had the headlight masks on my bike for about a year, maybe a bit more, I can't remember.

    Just a couple of months ago, I noticed that both sides of the headlight mask have formed bubbles. Though it's a little hard to see, here's a pic:

    Is there a way I can remove and reattach the masks?

    These are still available. I have switched the material to a headlight specific material as well.

    Still wondering if I can fix the bubbles that appeared.

    Maybe a pinhole to let the air out and to put some moisture inside. Seal down tight with a credit card or similar. That's worked for me on decals.

    Thanks again for the fast shipping, SpeedStar. Just received the headlight masks and triple clamp protectors, and hopefully the masks will make the bike look, umm, less ugly! :lol3

    Jamie, the bubble should lay down flat as perfectstranger pointed out with a pin hole. You could also try heating with a blow dryer and working the bubble with a cloth covered card to keep from scratching the surface to the edge. Once the air is out it should lay flat. Let me know how it goes.

    Thanks Devin for the quick turnaround. I pasted these on in 25 minutes. DOUSED them in the alcohol solution. No bubbles, no problems, and was even able to push them around a couple mm to line them up well.
