Handguards and Windshield

Just got done putting Barkbusters handguards with an aluminum backbone and Storm plastic shields on my 2016 UE. They went on with no problem and I didn't need to remove the crossbar which I like. I kept the plastic bar ends and just sawed off the part that goes into the bar. The Barkbusters Kit comes with a metal disc to replace the plastic piece but I liked the look of the original because it fits better than the metal ring.

Also put on a Dart windscreen which I think looks great and only cost $US130. It seems very well made and mounts easily. You do have to remove the spacer on the front blinkers mount but again I think it looks better without the spacer as the blinkers don't stick out sop far now. I even liked the packaging for the Dart, very professional.

I have a very slow connection cause I'm on the road but will post pictures once I'm back home.

Thanks for the write-up Bee.

I also have a 2016 UE and fitted the same handguard set-up you have, with similar experience.

I've been holding off on a screen, but commute with 10 miles freeway, so think it would help a bit. Looking forward to seeing your pics.
