that's very kind of you! TYVM!!
Thanks for the inspiration Frostbit. I found a trash can lid of my own and adapted it after the BMW deflectors made for freezing hands. Weird feeling to have your palms burning from the grips and your fingers numb from cold.
Anyway, they garbage lid option works beautifully for keeping the weather off and the cold out, and I think it complements the look of the bike too. Thanks also for inspiring me to stop lurking.
I made a slight improvement to these.....
Stage two is now this.....
Stage three will be a small flood in the guards, to light the way I'm pointing for trail work......
Ah Mr. Carbonfiber, I was looking foward to see the result on your handguards! good to know that that project isn't buried! Looking goood and like alwats magnificient work!
Thanks you sir..... The biggest pain was to make it all fit inside the new Sertao Blink lens, as I was using a " Puck led driver" But it works fantastic. If you are not chasing a new blinker location, and dont mind a little work, then it can work just as fine in the stock housing,as the lenses are from a BMW Sertao. Just a little over 14 watt..... These are very powerful. It would still be cheaper than to buy the aftermarket LED blinkers. Here is the build, in case your interested.
I just bought a 2013 but don't get it till April....
I have a set of Cycra Pro-bends that i want to install, but don't think I have the correct bar mount.
Does anyone know which cycra mounts will work??
Ah there went the thread! nice I'm all ears again )
I know this is an old thread, but I need some advise.
Have anyone install hand guard with the Wunderlich throttle lock type A?
Anyone have Hardware issues with their BMW handguards? I got mine today and the hardware that bolts the plastic onto the bar guard doesn't screw in like they are the wrong thread?
Yes. Same problem here. Thinking about selling them and going with Barkbusters.
Do you have the correct side lined up? I remember having that feeling when I was installing mine, but after sizing them up, I realized that I had the wrong side in
Yeah I had them on the right side, took them back to the dealer this morning and they switched em out for me, the original ones I got were not threaded correctly they said. Just finished putting the new set on...
Does anyone know if the white lettering on the TouraTech hand guards is a sticker or something else that could be easily removed?
I had these on a Triumph Tiger and if I remember correctly it was as sticker. I never tried to take it off and they never made any attempt to come off on their on.
I use to have the touratech ones but they finally cracked. So I went looking for the strongest ones I could find!

These are the "HDB Ultimate", right?
Is there any modification required at the handlebar weights? Or straight bolt-on?
you need to ask for new bar end weights (free) then it's just straight bold on.
Free hand guards from a friend of mine (OEMs from his Husaberg 570) They're only plastic, so they'll be temps until I get some proper ones. They should protect the controls for at least one napping session. I may spray them with some plastic etching grey paint for the white area. We'll see. I'll probably leave them as is and get the HDBs soon.
Had the TT handguards on, had a tip over other week, Altrider Crash bars did there job beautifully. Can't say the same for the TT handguards, yes they protected the brake lever and other items, but cracked in half on first off. So now got barkbuster handguards. Very confident with the very thick aluminium backbone. They definately won't snap like the all plastic TT ones.
If you fell hard enough to crack the TT handguards you would most likely have bent your handlebar with the "really sturdy" Barkbuster's
