    Hey Stelvio guys

    Thinking of adding the handguards to my Breva1100 and told by a Guzzi shop that they are a straight fit.

    How much wind/chill do they keep off - I wantto use thin summer gloves all day instead of thick gloves early and late in the day and thinner summer gloves in the middle of the day.

    If anyone knows the Breva fitment needs some fiddling and fettling let me know.

    None at all and you still get wet gloves.

    Hey rturo, I bought a set of KTM handguards for my Stelvio and they work pretty well with wind chill....Although if it's cold out your hands will still get chilled.

    $200 for MG ones & $49.99 for KTM

    Try the DORSODURO (Aprilia) handguards, I allready fit them in one SPORT 1200 ABS, and they look very nice and cover enough.

    +1 on the KTM guards, though for best fit the kit needs a bit of modification. If you decide to pop for them, I can detail the changes I made for an excellent final result.

    At Moto Intl. we have the Stelvio guards for about half what Guzzi sells them for.

    Stelvio ones fit perfectly just add some washers between the RH bar-end, or you'll have
    a cruise-control for free.

    In England..... sure :laugh:

    At least I notice a big difference in combination with heated grips and while riding in the rain they get wet but it takes much longer. Riding with summer-gloves.

    even in Norway....

    Bravo Brevabrabo, great photos - you using the heat from the cat and pipe to melt glaciers?

    Its looks like the handguard kit comes with new end weights, this correct and no change to vibes?

    Sharp eyes! Yes bar-ends are different and come with the hand-guards. There is no change in vibes (there aren't any). I can compare now, since I fell during my holiday, one was broken :angry: still have to replace it.
