Barkbusters handguards - positioning question
« on: November 20, 2020, 05:16:27 PM »
To anyone who is using Barkbusters handguards, could I see a photo of where on the handlebars you mounted the frames?

I'm having a bit of difficulty getting mine to line up evenly because the clutch lever assembly/brake fluid reservoirs get in the way.

Thanks in advance!

May I ask what the SOS button is on your right bar?

It is an emergency call system (to a BMW call center, they can inform emergency services if needed).
Activated automatically or manually. It contains a mic, speaker, button (to call or interrupt an automated call).

It is described in more details somewhere on this page:

Can someone provide a link or part number for those Busters? I think I'd rather have those than the Factory ones.  TIA !
