With the coming of cold weather - I found the heated grips
weren't too useful at speeds above about 45MPH. Some browsing of my favorite RS
forum gave me the hint that the handguards used on the R1150GS would work on the
RS. Not an exact fit, but good enough for winter use.
As can be seen - the inner fastening doesn't quite match
up with the RS bar supports, but some creative use of tie-wraps hold it on
securely.. and it seems to work.
There are a few downsides to these:
- The left one hits the switch for my driving lights when the bars are
turned fully right
- Both of them tap the instrument cluster when bars are fully left or right
- The left one blocks my access to my HeatTroller control on the left dash
panel a bit - I can still adjust it, but basically with one finger
All in all - I prefer the ones I had on the K75S - but there aren't any like
that available for the R1150RS, so one makes do with what one can.
