I wonder how much cooling of the final drive is due to that opening in the hub.  Just a thought.

Can't be much due to no heat sink being fitted  :-\

I actually think that hole looks sexy! Would've been better if it was even bigger!

Fitted a set of Barkbusters with the Storm plastics. Much more secure with my hands behind the bulky aluminium bar. Had a bad incident on my previous bike. Shattered the OEM BMW handguard which is actually only a wind deflector. Bruised hand but could have been far worse. Happier now and most people wont even notice the difference.

No part numbets sorry.  I ordered them from GPS4AFRICA  and specified the Storm hand guards. There are a couple of handguard types that alI fit the aluminium bar. The bar is specific to each bike model. Price R1600. I am sure that you will be able to order from any Barkbuster stockist. Check out the different hand guard styles and colours online
