How To Tell If You Need Hand Shields

Friday, March 4, 2016 5:20:30 PM America/Los_Angeles

There’s snow on the ground or water is falling from the sky. Hand Shields keep your gloves dry in the rain.

 

The wind chill is 30 or below. Hand Shields are designed to reduce the wind chill, providing the maximum protection with the smallest possible shield.

It’s over a “comfortable” 90 degrees. Hand Shields provide protection from heat.


You ride where the road likes to fly up and greet your hand.
Hand Shields are constructed of high grade steel (with high quality black powder coating or chrome) for strength and durability.


Your new handlebars no longer give you the protection of the fairing. Hand Shields Allow plenty of clearance from the levers, even with heavy gloves.

 

With the recent additions of our universal set, Hand Shields fit most V-Twin motorcycles.

 

**The Motorcycle Hand Shields are not designed to keep your hands warm in extremely cold weather. Appropriate gloves should be worn based on weather conditions.

5 Quick Tips for Installing Easy Brackets

Tuesday, August 19, 2014 2:17:34 PM America/Los_Angeles

1. If the arm on the lock hits the docking post (not allowing the Easy Bracket to lock in place), follow these fitment steps: Remove the bracket from the motorcycle and loosen the docking posts. Install the bracket and slightly shake the bracket to align the docking posts. Retighten the docking posts with the bracket on the motorcycle. If the bracket is still not fitting properly, remove the bracket and apply a lubricant such as WD-40 to the slot of each docking post. Reinstall the Easy Brackets.

2. The lock arm doesn’t have to swing all the way out to unlock the brackets. The locking mechanism is designed to only swing 45 degrees to open. The arm will hit the back of the bag. This is ok.

 

3. When mounting the brackets onto the back of your saddlebags, ensure the saddlebags are mounted high enough so as not to interfere with pipes, swing arm, axle nuts, axle nut covers, etc during the normal operation of your motorcycle. Keep in mind the fender will travel up and down as you are riding so allow for normal travel.

 

4. Make sure that saddlebag is mounted using all four holes in the bracket. Failure to do so can make the bag unstable and void any warranty.

 

5. Still having trouble? Call Great Bike Gear at (866) 521-3024 and speak with one of our experienced technical support representatives.
