    Looking for some handguards....have always been an Acerbis fan but the BarkBuster JET caught my attention the other day. Anyone running these and can weigh in? Thanks!

    I've had Barkbusters on a few bikes and currently on my CRF1000L Africa Twin (Barkbuster Storm). They are strong and do their job - I've tested one set. On my CRF250L I've used Zeta XC with the built-in LED lights. I've also tested these by dropping the bike a few times in muck and steep hills. Also do the trick.

    I have Barkbusters on my Tiger 800 and like them very much. They are bigger than the Acerbis so they protect you better from the weather.
    But on my CRF I just mounted some Acerbis. I had them on my XT & DR and they are good as well. And I got them much cheaper... I just had to modify them a little bit, because of the Gas cable.

    Considering these; have already whacked the brake lever unexpectedly once on brush.
