They look nice. Just wish they had more area to block wind.

Are those available in the US? I don't see them listed for the Versys.

Hi, I m curious this handguard is for model 2010 above. I m looking for one for my 2009. Any modification needed to fit it on yours? As I see the clutch cable is very close to the bracket in your photo. Thanks.

The orange Versys the OP has the guards installed on is a pre 2010 model (look at the headlights on his bike)... Meaning... it should fit yours as well..

I have the BarkBuster Storm hand guards installed which I believe are comparable. IMO handguards are useless at keeping your hands warm - I still need heated gloves at <10C/50F but they do look nice. They also offer some protection in a drop but then again replacement levers are much cheaper at $20. Only quality issue I have found is the inner screws supplied with the hand guards rust and the black plastic fades. Would I bother investing in hand guards again, probably not.

replacement levers are cheaper, but the tow home because you snapped the lever isn't.

I really like my OEM hand guards and I think they make the bike look like a hybrid dirt/street bike.

But, they do help keep your hands dry if you're riding in the rain. That alone justifies the price of admission!

These are different from the other ones from Kawasaki. I saw some that had Kawasaki on the front of them but were aluminium. I liked those much better! They had them on ebay for $180 plus delivery! That plastic would work ok but will probably fade after two years! Or maybe not? They look great!

FWIW - I have Zetas on both Vs, and I remove the plastic covers once it gets REALLY warm out, as the airflow cools my hands. The converse is that when it's cold I have the guards on to reduce airflow over my hands, keeping them warmer (perhaps - LESS cold is more exact...). The Kawi guards look like they'd give the same "benefits".
