    The replacement bar end fitting that the Barkbuster attaches to is not long enough. When installing the heated grips, new bar ends are supplied that are longer than the stock ones. The heated grips themselves are a bit longer than original grips.

    I have a suggestion for you if you are interested. Edit your first post & start adding other V85 Ride Reports into that post. They will be on the 1st page of this thread then & easy for everyone to find :deal

    A couple of updates to the thread, pictures of the new 2021 versions including the 100 Anniversary edition (apparently available as the Adventure Model)

    Hmmm...I wonder if the same issue would be encountered installing hepco & becker handguards too.

    The H&B's would seem to need a set distance from the bolts that hold the bar on to the ends of the bar ends. See here (installation instructions pdf)

    Has anyone installed the H&B's with heated grips?

    I don't expect this to be an issue for the H&B handguards - they're mounted on top of the factory plastic guards, you're not replacing the OEM bar end adapters and weights.

    lemme know how that goes.

    I'm going to go with oxfords and buy the molex connector. That leaves me with the same bar ends, and the oxfords get hotter.

    Dealer list needs to include Hamlin's in Bethel, CT - certified expert and MG enthusiast. Only sells Guzzis. May also want to add wildguzzi.com (Wildgoose Chase) to the forum list.

    HP Corsa sells both de-cat Y-pipe and mufflers. Y-pipe looks to be well made and went on my Adventure w/o issue. https://www.hpcorse.com/en/moto-guzzi-v85-tt-2
