New from Fasst Company is a handguard designed specifically for use with Flexx Bars.
Over the years that we have run Flexx bars, the question continually comes up. “What is the best handguard for the bars”? With their unique design, Flexx bars are a challenge to adapt to most wrap around guards. Typically I have run either moto style guards or the Fastway FIT system.
Now there is another choice. The design you see here is an adaptation of the popular Enduro Engineering design. What is unique is the bend of the aluminum bar and the mounting system. The aluminum curves right around to mate up to the threaded holes in the bar pivot. An aluminum spacer aligns everything just right.
The kit also comes with a nylon threaded bar insert. Just thread the bar end with the included tap and now you have a permanent nylon insert to thread the bolt into the bar. It is a nice touch. The bar end is always subject to dirt and water, so the nylon insert is a good choice to keep the parts from corroding.
We mounted this set up on one of the Baja tour bikes, so it has already seen some hard duty. So far so good. Other than some scrapes on the plastic, all is well. These are available from FasstCo for $136.
