Arcerbis Dual Road

Hi Folks,

Just installed the Acerbis Dual Road handguards. Looks awesome, fits very well, installed in a second.
Not cheap (in Europe Euro 89,95), rather small.
I have to check these handguards while riding. I have to check how it feels not having the weights at the bar end.
I will only use these to prevent my hands falling of in cold winter weather.
Completely free of touching the screen (i have the dark Kawasaki optional screen with flip up )when you have maximum steering.
When nice weather i will post some pics.

nice, just installed my new Barkbusters...really easy to install. I still have yet to test drive because I'm waiting for my new Arrow Exhaust to come in. Throw some pics up when you got the chance.

I have had the Dual Roads for about six months and other than being a little small for wind protection I really like them. They do break the wind in cold weather and rain, but you will still need a good windproof pair of gloves. I have been down twice with them on (slow speed) and they did a good job of helping to protect the rest of the bike. I wish they offered amber LEDs for them, but I have the LEDs hooked up to my turn signals. I am thinking about making them running lights (worthless during the day anyway). Mine contact my Givi screen in a full lock, but they are so flexible at the end that it doesn't cause a problem even when locking the bars. They also seem to compensate for the bar-end weights pretty well. I didn't notice any real difference one way or the other.

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!

Acerbis Dual road

Today i have been driving with the handguards. Very nice. Temperature 9 degrees celcius and a lot of wind. I have been riding for 45 minutes on the highway with my summergloves. Cold hands but acceptable. No noticable difference in shaking without the bar end weights but i have noticed that my Z1000 mirrors shook less. For the detail junkies like me; i have painted the remaining bar end, after removing the weights, black with auto (spot)paint. And of course at full lock the guards did not touch the Vario screen. It looks like if the handguards are specially built for the Kawa with varioscreen.

Got them and the high windshield (like the vario one but without the lip) as well. All I need now is a a pair of Z mirrors and I'll have the perfect front look.

Thanks for the report! I've been thinking about getting these and wondered what they looked like my the V.
