2012 WR 450 Bark Busters / Hand guards

26 posts in this topic

I have read a few posts on here and it seems that everyone likes the Cyra pro bends.  I am going to order a set for my bike.  Not sure if I should get blue or white.  Does anyone have a pic with them installed on a 12 or newer?  I have the stock pro taper bars are they 7/8"?  Will the ones in the link below have everything I need to install them?  Thanks.

I think they are 1 1/8".

Great guards. My Zetas would have folded on some of the hits the Cycras take.

I like the triple clamp mounts as opposed the the typical "U" clamp mount. The ones that BRP make that replace the top bar clamps.

And their threaded bar end inserts.

How did you make that work around the headlight/computer etc?

I actually have them on my 350EXC not on the WR as of now. There is no interference with the computer or headlight. I can take a picture of them on my bike if you would like.

I haven't seen that style before, I thought you were referring to the ones that bolt to the triple clamp. I can see how those go around, thanks.

Get some open ended DRC grips to go along with those wrap around guards. ;)

Thanks for all of the replies.  I am going to order them this week.  The ones I posted in the link above are universal and will fit my bike right?  1 1/8" bars.

I noticed the price for that setup is $133 but you will have an additional mount on your handlebars right next to the handlebar clamps.  I would recommend the following:

 

Get the handguards from here for $70.50

http://www.munnracing.com/    look under the CYCRA info.

 

 

Get the BRP handlebar clamps that replace the top clamps you currently have for $69.99 (they also have the handguards for $4 more so you may just want to get the whole deal here)

http://cyclebuy.com/shopping/cycra/handguard_alloy.htm   This way you are not adding any additional clamps to your handlebars.

 

That would be my suggestion, total cost only being ~$7 more but a "cleaner" setup :thumbsup:

Going to order the setup you suggested.  I think I am just going to get everything from cyclebuy to save on shipping.  Thanks

They also have the threaded bar ends which I also use. Have them on both my bikes. Makes for a more solid application.

Another vote for Cycras. I have the triple clamp mounts on my WR, and the BRP top bar clamp/Scotts damper /bark buster mount on my KTM. Both work great, fit great and don't interfere with anything.

      Hey guys ive seen alot of stabilizer questions lately and since we currently own 3 different stabilizers, I figured I would try and help out TT a little with a comparison between the three...
      IF THERE IS ANYTHING I SHOULD ADD, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
      IF ANYONE WOULD LIKE TO WRITE A REVIEW ON ANOTHER STABILIZER OR PERHAPS THE ONE OF THE SAME STABILIZERS, I WOULD BE HAPPY TO EDIT IT IN TO MY POST!
      Stabilizers in test:
      >GPR V1 mounted on top of the bars with a Fastway adjustable mount system & RG3 Gen 2 (Top and Bottom) Triple Clamps with pro tapers
      >Scotts mounted on top of the bars with a scotts upper triple clamp with Renthal twinwalls (crossbar removed)
      >WER mounted to front fender (no other option)
      Notes:
      The GPR is mounted to a 2002 Honda CR250R
      The Scotts is mounted to a 2002 Yamaha YZ250
      The WER is mounted to a 1999 KX250
      All bikes are set up and used for off-road only
      All stabilizers are in correct working order
      GPR
      Mounting----------------------10/10
      Function----------------------40/50
      Adjustiblity--------------------13/20
      On the Fly Adjustments---------8/10
      Price---------------------------8/10
      Total--------------------------79/100
      Pros:
      >Easiest to adjust on the fly
      >Awesome Anodized Colors
      >Easy 2 bolt mounting
      >You can feel it working
      >Works as advertised
      >Dampens back to the center
      Cons:
      >Not as adjustable as the SCOTTS, it has high speed and low speed dampening on one circuit
      >You can feel it working, in the tight woods I feel like I am fighting it.
      >Dampens back to the center



      SCOTTS
      Mounting----------------------10/10
      Function----------------------45/50
      Adjustiblity--------------------18/20
      On the Fly Adjustments---------7/10
      Price--------------------------7/10
      Total-------------------------87/100
      Pros:
      >Cool gold color
      >Very adjustable, high speed on one knob and low speed on another
      >Can be adjusted so that you are never fighting it
      >Easy to mount
      >You can’t feel it working until you need it.
      >Can fit under many stock cross bars when mounted backwards
      Cons:
      >Not so easy to adjust on the fly, may be different wit large knob accessory
      >A bit pricier than GPR yet still very reasonable.
      (The YZ's a little dirty after yesterdays ride:busted:)


      WER
      Mounting-----------------------5/10
      Function-----------------------33/50
      Adjustiblity--------------------10/20
      On the Fly Adjustments---------4/10
      Price--------------------------9/10
      Total-------------------------61/100
      Pros:
      >Nearly impossible to detect that its working
      >Mounts out of the way, on the front fender
      >Decent look
      >Easy to bleed and not as many moving parts or seals as SCOTTS or GPR
      >Excellent price
      Cons:
      >Really not sure how much it does
      >Nearly impossible to adjust on the fly, (I tried and almost crashed)
      >Not very easy to mount
      >Have to cut hole in front number plate


      EXTRA INFO/NOTES:
      >Scotts can be mounted under bars as a sub mount kit for saftey
      >Scotts can be mounted on the front fender, this is called a low mount kit, (like the WER)
      >Scotts can be mounted backwards to fit under stock crossbars
      >GPR sells a V2 Kit which mounts under the bars and is part of the bar mounts, so it can not be mounted on top of the bars.
      >GPR also offers a V3 which you can adjust on the handle bars with a twist adjuster.
      >WER only mounts on the fender, no other option
      These are the only stabilizers that I had the resources to test, all of the stabilizers worked well although the GPR and SCOTTS were the best. I prefer the SCOTTS just slightly over the GPR. This is only my opnion, I have friends who swear by the GPR and others who wont ride without a SCOTTS.
      I will be going to the sand with these bikes within the next couple of weeks and will post some info of how they perform there too.
      Hope This Helps Someone!!!
