Default Re: Hand Guards on a 1100RT?

1. Do appropriate surgery to milk jug of proper size.

2. Check fitment and allignment to bars and mounting hardware (zip ties...)

3. Cover milky white or chocolately brown surfaces with silver or black duct tape, as matches finish on bike, thereby adding durability AND fashion to your ride.



(Most all of my "Field Expedient" repairs tend to last for a decade or so....)

Thumbs up on the Hippo hands. I used them for daily commuting in Seattle for two years through all sorts of slop and had no complaints. Best part is that you can pull them off and stow them when the weather turns nice.

"Warchild" has a nice write up about fitting handguards to an FJR (sourced from Vstrom) at FJR Tech.com.

Hey, thanks for pointing me to that - I had "admired" the DL handguards from afar, it's much easier walking into a dealer with part no's in-hand than the "pulling teeth" to get the local parts-yokel to look it up on his computer.



These fit the FJR with little problem, will prolly fit my FZ6 commuter with similar ease. (they look like it)

Got 'em already. But they're no help. However they do make it WARM and wet though!



Thanks for the suggestion. But you're dealing with a little princess who can't and won't put up with being uncomfortable.

Thanks! I'll check it out. I put the V-Strom hand guards on a Moto Guzzi Breva 750 and they worked like a dream. So now I'm bummin' without anything.

Sorry, but I have to draw the line somewhere, and I'm afraid it's Hippo Hands and milk cartons!
