KLR handguards

Thanks to the Power of the Internet ™, I learned today that the handguards from a Kawasaki KLR650 should fit on the SVS. Woo! Here are just a few of the reasons why this rocks:

1) Kawasaki KLR handguards are cheap. Brand new, they’re $15 each, meaning they’ll be even cheaper used.
2) I won’t get frostbite on all of my fingers while in Alaska, forcing me to eat my own hands off or leave them for the bears.
3) I won’t have to get bulky gloves, uncomfortable glove liners, or expensive heated gloves to combat the above.
4) They’ll be easily removable, so the bike won’t look utterly ridiculous during northern CA summers.
5) They come in truly hideous colors, increasing the tackiness quotient of my bike by at least threefold.

Let the ebay scouring begin!

    Kickass! No more frozen hands for you!
    As much as I love naked bikes, I must say.. for winter cold riding, full fairing bikes are great. Took the Aprilia out for couple thousand feet, and I could immediately tell the difference.

    Do you have any information about the install for a SVS? I would love to block the wind on my SV.
    Good idea!

    Thanks Carolyn,
    I’m also on the list and I will check around for the instructions. Good luck on your Alaska trip!
