ADVance Guard multi-functional hand guards are uniquely designed to provide broad protection and easy adjustability for a variety of weather and riding conditions.
Adjustable Wind Protection
ADV riders must adapt to a wide variety of environmental and weather conditions – from highway to single track, hot temperature in the dirt, warm air in the countryside, or driving rain and cold temperatures on the interstate. The ADVance Guard height adjustable Sliding Shield and removable front Insert enable you to easily adapt to prevailing conditions without the need for tools.
Fully extended vertical coverage is 142mm. With the Shield’s in its open front configuration, ADVance Guard’s height is 98mm. Shield adjustments must made while the bike is stationary. The Insert and Sliding Shield are injection molded in a resilient polymer and are easily attached or removed from the Frame.
Aluminum Twin Spar Frame
The wide twin spar frame provides broad coverage to cover not only the hands, but also the control levers and switches. Used by itself without the Insert or Adjustable Shield attached, the open center permits cooling air flow. The Frame mounts to the end of the handlebar and at a second point on the handlebar with forged aluminum Mounts shaped to clear control cables.
ADVance is an assembly of 3 main components:
- A Twin Spar Frame with an open airflow front.
- An Insert that snaps into the open front.
- A Sliding Shield that is adjustable up and down 50mm.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Fitment to the F800, 700, and 650 GS is straightforward using the contents of the Kit. Fitment to the 2019 F850/750GS first requires installation of handlebar setback mounts (ROX are a good brand) that will create sufficient clearance between the Guards and these new models’ very large TFT displays. These setbacks are essential to prevent damage to the display at full left/right steering lock. They are not included with the ADVance Guard Kit.
