Barkbuster BBZ Review
25 November 2023 by Ben
After 3 weeks of use and on a very cold trip this morning, these are certainly doing the job. Cuts wind chill right down without restricting use of the hand controls.

Mmmm

They will do a job but I'm not really impressed with the fit of these. It seems fairly difficult to mould or adjust them into a shape that keeps the lining away from your hands, certainly underneath the grips. In addition at speed, they deform due to wind pressure. If you can't fit rigid guards onto your bike, buy them and not these floppy canvas jobs

Great access

Unlike others that I've owned, these don't restrict access to your controls but still protect your hands from the elements! Excellent build quality and the fact the are mechanically fixed to your handlebars makes them secure.

Couldn't be easier

Very good protection from the weather, if you accept the limitations of the design.
I bought these as I prefer to be able to see the controls on my handlebar.
Used with heated gloves on the lowest setting, with wind chill at below freezing, these worked a treat. Without these fitted I needed my gloves on the highest heat setting to get the same degree of warmth.
These fit easily on their own or over a set of metal handguard protectors, which is how I've fitted them.

My second set, a good halfway house between handguards and full on mitts that keep your hands out of the wind. with access to the controls You get plenty of fitting option although I had to get a bit creative to clear the wing mirror stems.

They don't fit
22 November 2022 by Martin H
I ride a BMW F850 GSA and the handlebars are the same as the the 1250 GS and GSA. Despite coming with a whole bag of fittings for various bikes you will need to do a bit of extra work to make them fit these BMW bikes. You will need to purchase two 10mm x 60mm bolts and then re-drill the supplied washer to increase from 8mm to 10mm. Not major works but worth knowing in advance.
One fitted I'm happy with the way they look.
Only used once so far on a dry but cold day and definetly offer good protection from cold wind so with heated grips on hands were toastie warm. They don't extend far up the wrist so not sure how effective they will be in a heavy downpour time will tell.

Great Piece of Kit

Bought these to fit to my Triumph Tiger 900 RP & 701. Arrived super fast as always, with lots of additional hardware to fit to bars. Easy to install on both bikes. Tested recently & they work a treat. Kept the wind & chill off my hands.

Quality Kit

A good compromise between weather protection and access to the switches/levers.
The package arrived with all sorts of fitment options but the muffs were very much "plug and play" on my Super Tenere, fitting over the OEM guards.
It all seems very well made.
