Maier handguards

Someone mentioned using these:

Do you lose lever clearance, does anyone know?
They seem like they won't block much wind near the thumb and index finger. Any opinions?

I have a set of Emgo guards on my KLR, and they look pretty much identical to those Maiers. They protect my hands from cold OK, but not as effectively as the "Zeta XC" ones I put on my Versys.

College student budget issues with the Zetas.
I want those crash guards at the same time. They saved my left leg on my last bike.

As far as wind and cold protection go, Zeta + XC Protecotrs were the useless thing I added to the bike. Especially at that price + expensive shipping.

Take a look at this:

I'm not registering on another forum.
I'd rather ride with cold, tired hands than read through more bickering and bragging.

Using Acerbis Rally Pro Handguard. Pretty good in blocking wind as I sweat in my gloves.

Hi Homer,

Just saw your thread and pics.
Looks exactly like handguards I bought for a biker friend here minus the Maier sign. Made of aluminium and a fixed guard.

My friend reported back,no issues and happy with it.

As for weather protection with Zetas: here in AZ I ride in temps as low as freezing during the winter on long rides, and the Zetas keep my hands comfy. For the warm weather I remove the plastic pieces and ride just with the aluminum bars. (I also go back to the stock windscreen for warm, from the Majestic scooter 'shield I use for cold.)
