Well there are pretty much two different types that you can get Oz. One type is open, and the other is shut. meaning that the open just comes off your bars up near where your clutch and brake levers attach, and they are more flexible. The others are what I prefer, which has a metal bar that wraps all the way from where the levers attach to the end of your handle bars, it is a lot more sturdier and everything. The down fall on those is you can't slide your hand off the end of the bars if you do hit something, or whatnot, but I have always run them, and I hit a tree doing about 30 on a dirtbike, and these things implanted in the tree and didn't brake or anything, as I landed on the other side of the tree.

This is an idea of what I run, I use Moose, but they may be a different model.

Thanks Nikki for posting it, but that shows what the bark busters look like on my quad. The other busters you can get don't have that metal siding like mine, they are called Flex Guards.

oh yeah OZ, i got them from here if you really get to looking at a set.
The aluminum guards and the deflector totaled right about $70

http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/


EDIT: the $70 price tag is for Moose racing "straight" aluminum guards with deflectors which is NOT xx friendly ( found out today ) You will have to go with the Mooses "contoured" guards which is $22 higher.

Oh, and for anyone that is getting the full ones like I got, you are going to have to take the end cap of your bars off, and take the factory weight out which will be a PITA, and then I would throw some wax or silicone in the bars a ways in, 6 inches, pack it in there, as this helps out vibration, as the guards use a wedge nut which won't fit in there w/ the factory weight. If anyone needs help, just send me a PM!

I have had good luck with the Moose guards on my Rincon.

Here is what I have been running on my 700XX, I really like these because they bolt up to the end of the bar. You do have to remove the stock bar weights.

I have also had good luck with PowerMadd and Cycra in the past too.

Just make sure to see if the mounting kit comes with the guards, some do and some don't.
