Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Just thinking about fitting these which deflect the wind away from the hands...

Any idea if they actually help keep the gloves warmer? Or make a difference at all generally?

Thanks

Those don't look too practical with the cut-outs and all. If you want to keep your hands comfortable, these are probably a better bet (and not pricey)

My Tiger has similar guards and they do work well at keeping the hands dry and protected from wind chill.

I have had something similar in the past:  it does make a difference but only a little one.  If you want to make a *big* difference you need to get them but attach something to them to make them bigger (so they block more wind!).

The other option is handlebar muffs - they will need something stiff in them to stop them operating the levers at high speed!

EDIT: Those ones that Beresford as posted a link to look much more likely to do the job - so much so that I might buy a pair!

I'm a muff devotee... The urbano muffs fix at the bar end, with plastic sheet reinforcement to keep the shape and prevent touching levers..they're awesome for keeping feeling in your fingers

I have these exact ones on my cb. They do help and are easy to fit.

bar mitts looks lot better choice.
around freezing can driving around with naked hands, and it not fall off from cold.

take in account, the smaller inner dimesions they are, then more warm it is...

Hi guys, I got these deflectors - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2x-Universal-7-8-22mm-Motorcycle-Bike-Handguards-Hand-Guards-Protectors-Black/262991069569?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649


The problem is the bolt that goes inside the handlebars appears too thick for my bars - see images below. Anyone know a way to hollow out the bars more? Am I missing something?
