Ural Hand Guards

I just noticed that I missed the 2000th post onto this blog. This is post #2003. When I started this, I had no idea that it would go on for so long. We arrived back in Fairbanks at 2 am. Those flights are starting to feel longer and longer.

There was a box from Revzilla waiting for me at home. I had been thinking about some hand guards for a while but wasn’t sure what would fit the Ural. Kevin, who’s place we stayed at in Montane, had ordered a set from the dealer for his new Ural. So thanks to his purchase, I now had a Barkbuster part number. I shouldn’t have over thought it as it is a generic hand guards for 7/8” bars. Note that it doesn’t have the nice aluminum bar that attaches to the handlebar end. It’s purpose seems to just keep wind off of your hands which is fine with me.

To get some clearance for these hand guards, I moved the windshield slightly more vertical. There is now less wind noise so that’s another plus.


  1. Looks good RichardM. Handguards (with the metal bar attached to the bar end) have proved invaluable for the TW200.....given the amount of times I've dropped it.

    1. I've been looking for these for a while though I would have preferred the more sturdy model, these are probably just fine as the probability of the Ural tipping over is small...

    2. Well, it’ll help shield your hands against those wily branches that leap out at you on the trail. :)

      Should also help hold in place any grip cover you have.
