Which handguards?

... for my 2011 FE with Neken bars?


Someone has suggested the Cycra Probend guards at about 110


Alternatively, there's the genuine Husaberg items at about 75

What's the view?

neither. get some enduro engineering ones as they are much better fit and quality and around 65.00 a pair including fitting kit.

Try Nik @ endurotek on 01429 861369 for mail order next day.

Re: Which handguards?

I am going with the stock hand gards off my 2007 990 Adventure, they are strong enough for this mighty beast, they will be fine for my new FE570s. and they are only $70.00 and now come in black and white together.

Be Blessed Brothers, Eric.

I love my Cycras. I've crashed on them many times, including some good ones in the rocks. They've kept my hands protected, and have kept the bars straight.

I tried them all, hands down highway dirtbikes guards are the best, when you see them you will understand why.

Re: Which handguards?

I have purchased a 2009 FE 450 today and wonder witch handguard to buy.
I was looking at the cyra handguards (http://www.ktm-parts.com/U6810115.html) but a friend did not recommend that kind that is locked to two places on the handlebar. He knows a couple of people that has broken their hands when they crashed and went over the handlebars.

So witch one do you recommend?

Cyra center reach mount




Happy with them so far, had to fit a spacer to clear the euge brake lever on my FS.
Put one on the clutch side to even things out.

Glenbro...
depends on the type of rideing you do.... personally I prefer the double fixed type of bushbar for the better protection afforded when riding through trees and or falling on the ground. Very hard to get your fingers trapped with the cycra style of fittment, just hang onto the bars as you go down (within reason obviously) pulling in the clutch, blipping the throttle, pick it up and go again with no bent/broken levers or skinned pinky's. I have heard the rumors of broken arms from bush bars but have never met anyone thats done it (I do lead a shelterd life tho).
I do know of people that have broken arms/legs from walking down a footpath, but that dont stop the rest of us from walking down said footpath.

Anyone else with experiance/ personal preferance?
