Handguards

Post by trialsrider » Fri Jan 04, 2019 9:30 am

Lets start a new religious war :amazon:

I need a set of handguards.

What hand guards do you like and run?

I'm pretty indifferent on specific handguards but I do like to have a mount of this type (and I do have the BRP ones, which are nice):

you are putting handguards on your trials bike? :think: :lol2:

I usually get Cycra Probend CRM handguards. I also tap the bars (see Bullet Proof Designs Rigid Handguard Bar End Mounts)

+1 on what Ken said (not the trials bike part). I had the highway dirtbike set up and was well built but weighed a ton...best for bigger ADV type bikes.

Another vote for Cycra pro probends and tapped bar ends. I like the BRP inner mounts that replace the bar clamps.

Highway Dirt Bikes. Toughest ones I've seen and they send you the tap and big bolts (3/8"?) to tap the ends of your bars. With the big bolts in the bars, you can safely use your hand guards as a tie down point if you wanted to. Plus the integrated mirrors (extra) are pretty slick and awesome.
