Added hand guards to the wife's CB300F. Might be a little warmer now. Bought them at Cycle gear. Also raised the bars an inch and a half. Protective electrical tape was removed after final adjustment. Had it there to protect handlebars. The clamps on the handguards were to large for the bars so I had to build up the bars with electrical tape and clamp the clamps down on the electrical tape.

I actually thought that wouldn't look good at all. I live in Arizona so this wouldn't ever cross my mind......However.......looking at your pics I would have to say that you did a great job and it actually looks really good. Nicely done my friend......you might be on to something for cold weather states.

I also wired it up so she has a place to plug in her heated jacket. It's controlled by a thermostat. Then I wired a garage door opener to the horn. We have a remote gate on the driveway.

I like the fact that these two mods on this bike are meant for comfort. I'll be adding some hand guards as well. I can tell a difference when switching bikes. My WR has them and they do the job. I'll need to put more miles on my F in order to check my endurance and comfort. The bar risers will definitely give yourself a more upright riding position, which is good for comfort. Good job!

Wife rode with them today and loves them. They blocked a bunch of the wind off her hands and she was a lot warmer.

Hey CB you guys considered heated grips? I assume your next move is what, windscreen? :D;)
Grips are a good idea. Never had them always wore heated gloves if it was really cold. We wear gerbing heated jackets. They will cook you! Love mine. Wife sold her gloves they were to bulky for her taste. Might put some heated grips on it for her.

PS: You guessed my next move.

Got some handguards from a 2002 Kawasaki KLR "C" model (not sold in US). Still available from K at $37 the pair!. A couple of hours' work fitting and adapting them and some paint and they look good and block a lot of the wind. Rode 2 hours at 4-6 degrees C yesterday with regular gloves. Made all the difference. Anybody who wants to save some money might look at various OEM dirt bike guards.

I'd like to be able to plug in a GPS. Please describe what was involved doing the wiring on your wife's bike. Thanks.

Hi CB300F
I am thinking about mounting a garage door opener. You said you wired it to the horn but where and how did you mount the PCB unit/clicker? Any pictures? I was thinking of adding a weatherproof "control box" for mine.
Any help would be much appreciated.
