Just fitting the Husqvarna hand guards in white and effectively they are Barkbusters with the KTM/Husqvarna plastic hand shield design, which is of a much harder (possibly brittle) plastic than the BB VPS ones. The Barkbusters aren’t available in the UK in the KTM/Husky version so I bought the oem Husky ones (part no.63502979000AB for £80 and have ordered the VPS plastic shield (better hand cover and adjustable) to fit when they arrive, total cost was £113 delivered, instead of about £140 for the BB version.

When fitting these, if you have the bars tilted forward and the bar risers fitted to the front hole, make sure the alloy guard bar doesn’t touch the TFT screen edge, mine did, so I will be trimming the alloy spacer included in the kit, by half its width (I’m using 3 washers at the mo, which allows the brake lever to operate with a small gap and the bar clear the TFT).

Can you confirm the end result fits the Norden?
I am asking because in my country 63502979000AB is listed as KTM 790 Adv part, not Husqy Norden. Looking at its pics, I can't see the part listed by Backbusters page: Two Point Mount - Barkbusters Moto

I also noticed there is a black version of this KTM/Husqy handguard set: 6350297900030

I’ve just given up on the Barkbusters, mine hits the screen in both the middle and forward facing holes no matter what angle I tilt the bars. To me the bar is 10mm too long. Anyway, I’m having to return them for a refund as I just can’t get them to fit. The Husky version look to be made by Barkbusters as they have the same part no stamped on the bar, but I’m going to confirm it with my Husky dealer.
Anyone have an alternative product on the market…Cycra is one H&B another I know of

This is what I bought and it won’t fit my Norden.
Barkbusters assure me that these fitted on their bike but have bars set in neutral position…whatever that means. I’m disappointed as I like the product, have on my other bike plus it’s good Aussie made gear

I just installed the H&B bars. I like them. They are beefy and they give a bit of different styling compared too most hand guards. Be aware of how they mount though because you can't rotate them in relation to the bars. They mount on the bolts that mount the bars. So that dictates the orientation of the guards in relation to the bars.
