I have a pair of the Moose plastic guards on just for the purpose you are asking about. They also help allot in keeping brush or briars off of your hands. Can't recall what I paid for them now but it was not much.
A mechanic gave me a suggestion yesterday, that when fitting Hand Gaurds, wrap insulation (electricians) tape around the handle bar first, then do not overtighten lower brackets. On the bolts that go "into" the handle bar, loosen them 3 turns.
This gives you all the Brush and Weather protection you need. HOWEVER when/if you fall, it gives, and swivels on the bar, and will not break your wrist.
cool. I got them in the mail on Friday and are just what I wanted. Didnt put them on yet as they sent me the wrong thermo part so I couldnt go riding anyway. The Yamaha parts diagram is actually wrong for the 2002 660 Electrical, so the parts numbers are switched for the two thermos... hence, I got the wrong one and have to wait a week to get the right one. I can't believe I was the first one in 3 years to see this mistake!
