    Default Diavel handlebar (hand/wind) protectors

    Has anyone fitted these?
    Just out of interest coz I've had to use the bike last couple of days on the work commute and my hands have been freezing even with heated grips.

    Seen them on multistradas and other bikes but figure more to protect from flying stones so wonder if they also offer any wind protection.

    Thanks im advance

    I used them on my old BMW Funduro and they kept the worst of the wind chill off and kept my gloves dry in the rain too. I had a 15 mile commute each way and used the bike almost all 12 months of the year. I did draw the line at leaving home on the bike if it was forecast for snow but still got caught out a couple of times and my hands were never cold enough to use electric hand warmers.

    Thanks.
    I thought as much.
    So my next question is.....They aren't commonly available as an official aftermarket accessory for the Diavel as far as I can tell. So what generic manufacturers would fit?

    I've been using handlebar muffs instead. look rubbish on the bike but are very effective. i commuted last week (6-8C) and continued to use my summer gloves with them. they are very cheap too.

    Barkbusters. Click on What fits my bike and you will get a downloadable application chart. Several variants are listed for the Diavel.

    In Theory, Practice and Theory are the same. In Practice they are different.

    Thanks for the pointers to source the hand guards. Think I will invest in some.

    On another note I've often said I thought heated grips were pointless as they don't seem to make much difference on my bike despite other people swearing by them.
    I've figured out why.
    Mine don't seen to be working properly.
    The lights on the controller come on but even set on max the grips don't seem to warm up past what I suspect is the lowest setting
    🤔

    These are for off road bikes but are really easy to install on road bikes with room to mount on their bars.
    Other models are available that don't wrap fully around to the end of the bars
