Barkbusters on 1200 GSA
« on: November 17, 2011, 04:55:55 pm »
I installed barkbusters on my 650 Dakar a while ago. After installation, I noticed increased vibration on the handle bars. I assume it was because the handlebar weights in the barkbuster kit is much smaller than the originals.

I want to install barkbusters on the GSA now. Does anyone have experience with barkbusters on a 1200 GSA?

You buy them and fit them. Simple and quick. I have some on my GS and I expect it to be the same to fit.

They don't break when you fall in sand, etc - unlike the BM standard windguards.

(Edit: - no vibration - I did not even know that was a factor.

I'm sure the end weights stay the same on the GSA, can't remember. I supply and fit Barkbusters, Alberton.
The 650 gets smaller weights because of the weight of the spine, the new endweight and the spine weigh about as much as the standard endweight, but it does seem to affect vibration a bit.
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!
