    I’d appreciate hearing from folks who have removed their factory hand guards. Did you like the results or did you go back to the hand guards?

    Why do you want to remove the handguards?

    I run without them in the summer(well, actually all year really), and in winter i put on a pair of Barkbusters Blizzard(mini-muffs). Love it in summer. In winter it does as designed(with more wind protection than the stock hand-guards), but they are pretty damn ugly. Winter time is definitely a function over form time
