Heavy Duty Kobra Hand Guards for R1200GS LC, R1200GS/A, & F800/F650GS Twins by SW-Motech
These hand guards are our currently favorite aftermarket heavy duty hand guards. We believe good design is both both functional and visually appealing. These hand guards are both. They are strong and a major upgrade over stock hand guards because they are supported by a black aluminum support that runs the entire length of the bar. These hand guards provide outstanding protection for your control levers and your hands from wind, rain, tree branches, and the ground in the tip over. We believe these hand guards are also very visually appealing. They enhance the lines and designs of the bike. In addition, you can choose from several unique separate accessories like the extensions and the LED blinkers.
The hand guard shields are molded from impact resistant plastic in a classic design. These hand guards feature a strong, fully wrapped black aluminum backbone with all metal mounts.
Optional accessories include:
- Hand Guard Extension, allowing 50% more protection
- Hand Guard LED blinkers (1 watt, overall 16 LEDs)
- Resistors for OEM blinkers (10 / 21 watt)
This resistor is an optional accessory for KOBRA hand guards with the LED lighting kit. The resistor makes sure the optional LED lights blinks at the correct rate. No cutting or soldering necessary.
If you are adding supplemental lighting / replacing existing LED lighting, you will not need this part. When replacing incandescent lights with LED lights you will need to look at the OEM bulb to determine if it is a 10 watt or a 21 watt bulb, and order the corresponding resistor.
