Versys 300 hand Guards

Hey All.
Do I have to pay $100 + tax for hand guards?
Surely there has to be a more reasonable option- anyone
know of one?
Cheers

Whatever you buy - be sure it has an aluminum spine. It'll do a good job protecting your hands if things go S....

hand guards

Just tired of "wind chill" ( live in northeast ) rendering my hands numb and useless for 30 minutes after riding....
Can I get a pair to fit the bike for less than $100?

I bit the bullet and went with the OEM handguards. $98.59 + tax. Wind chill reduction was the main reason for me too.

The thing I like about the OEM guards is the way they mount seamlessly to the controls. I installed some aftermarket handguards on a previous bike, and I didn't like how they clamped on to the handlebars.

I put the OEM ones on. Dealer gave a break on price because I bought the bike the same day.
