    I think I need to get me a set of hand guards to properly benefit from the heated grips. The F650 CS is often not quoted in a lot of parts, so I am not sure what other 650 hand guards will fit? Anyone got any recently they can recommend? I saw the mits but don't fancy them myself. I saw these...

    Hello all, hoping to get some advice on the above. Have been looking at the various makes of engine guards/crash bars for my bike - 2008 F650GS (lowered). I'm drawn towards the adventure-spec ones as they look really sturdy and design looks good. If anyone has these fitted would I be able...

    Hi chaps, I have ordered "venom reinforced hand guards" for 20 quid to install on my 2004 Dakar. They have arrived now and they do look very solid. It is universal kit so I am a bit puzzled how to fit them. Did anyone successfully fit them ? Can you please share pictures ? Thanks! Dimitri...

    First a happy New Year to all of you. :-D I'd like to get hand guards for my 2005 F650GS. It has goy factory heated grips. I know about touratech but the price puts me off. Are there any others, which would fit my bike? Thanks Linda

    The OE handguards have been doing my head in for some time, personally for weather protection, they're good, for anything else, you may as well wrap a loaf of bread round the bar. So I decided to get some Acerbis ones, not wanting to pay Touratech tax and shipping i just bought the Rally Pro...

    Having read reports about corrosion and fork seal failure I'm now thinking of fitting the Tourtech fork guards. However before I commit the dosh I thought I'd ask if anyone has experience of fitting these, how difficult is it, and are they the best option? Any comments welcome. Cheers Tim

    This has probably been answered before but I'll be buggered (can I say that? :think: ) if I can find it. I have recently purchased a 2004 CS from Rainbow in Rotherham and would like to fit some hand guards to it. Nobody seems to supply them for the CS do the GS versions fit? PS Rainbow are...

    Hi all Thank you all for your input regarding the type and fitting of hand guards to a CS. I have now managed to source a pair of genuine GS which fit a treat. Problem solved. Silver Fox 03 CS, Remus GP Titanium, Centre stand, Handle bar risers, Fenda Extenda.

    I seem to remember Barry Merchant fitted handguards to his original CS and them being BMW F650GS or Ascerbis guards which needed a bit of tweeking to stop fouling the standard screen. You may not have this problem with an aftermarket item. Anyway, I'm sure Barry will be along soon with his...

    Has anyone fitted hand guards to a Scarver. If so what type are they and where did you get them from?? I have fitted Handle bar risers and a Whunderlich screen so there are no issues around there being a shortage of space in this area. I have spoken to my local dealer "Rainbow" who seem to be of...
