I like the look of handguards (black) and would love some wind/rain protection for my poor fingers.

What brand is recommended for Versys?

I'd prefer plain black ones without any logos or text on them.

Thanks! (2008 Versys)

I like my KTM hand guards. They are smooth, no logo, nice shape and look like they belong on the V.

Here is a very informative thread on these guards.

i used the aprilia dorsoduro solution.
dorsoduros hand guards cost 3.7 euros each:clap:
i bought some connecting screws-nuts also for 10 euros.
total cost almost 18 euros.
i cut the plastic of the handguards (this photo doesnt show this part ) in some places especially on the clutch cable side ,i will show tomorrow in another picture the sides i modified to properly fit

I have the Powermadd Handguards. I also got the wing extensions for them for extra coverage. The wings defiantly add some extra protection.
They do have a logo, but it is only raised lettering. I bought the black on black option.
And since some people like pics......:thumb:

Those are Emgo Mark II mirrors. About $25, don't shake loose and don't vibrate as much as the OEM mirrors.

Yeah, Bones has got it going on...
Thanks for that information. I have some Emgo Roadhawks, but although they are better than the stock mirrors, they still aren't what I am looking for. I'll look around for a pair and try them out as the price isn't bad at all....:thanx:

Are they the Vstrom 650 or 1000 version? I have DL650 knucklegaurds that were on my SV. I was just gonna sell them, but if they fit, I won't.

They were the DL1000, but they may be the same...not sure
