Will Acerbis Rally Profile or Rally Pro handguards fit stock bars?

Just picked up my first Versys, all stock. I want to fit some full wrap around handguards but still keep the bar end weights. What are my options?

How can these be made to work?



or these

When I put Zeta XCs on both my Vs, I removed the bar-end weights and put them away. Haven't missed them in OVER 70,000 miles...!

Maybe the Zeta hand-guards cancel vibes the way they mount? I don't know, but I don't have MUCH vibes on my Vs...!

Any solid mount handguard I've ever mounted on my many dirtbikes has done zero to cancel out the vibes. As I get older, riding more offroad, longer and faster the high frequency vibes will put my hand to sleep.

I might consider flag style guards but would prefer solid wraparound to protect the levers.

BarkBusters replace the weight with their own then you buy the plastics and you're all set

I bought the Storm but you can also buy the VPS in any colour

based upon your use of the Barkbusters, do you think their bar end weights could be fitted to the Acerbis handguards?

I doubt it the BarkBusters are designed to work with the weights the Acerbis are not.





See how far the spine is from the handlebar to allow for the weight? I'm guessing the Acerbis lines up with the handlebar minus the weight
