G2 Challenge:  Provide a strong outer handguard mount that stays put!

G2 Solution:  The Threaded Bar Handguard Mount.

Conventional handguard outer mounts (securing handguard to handlebar end) have never done the job.  The old school bolt-nut-rubber hose solution simply does not provide the strength necessary.  One slow speed tip-over and your guards can move substantially.  The more current aluminum split-wedge design is very strong, but vibration will loosen them very quickly.  The bolt need only loosen about 1/8 turn and the wedges lose all strength and the handgaurd “pops out”.

The Threaded Bar Handguard Mounts are a twist on an old Enduro rider solution from the early 80’s.  By tapping the inside of the handlebar, a threaded piece can be inserted to securely bolt the handguard to the handlebar end.  All solutions involved steel which can corrode to the bolt and cause long term problems.  The G2 Threaded Handguard Mount has proven to exceed all strength demands, and now available in nylon, aluminum, stainless steel, and zin-plated steel.

G2 Key Points:

  • Sold with or without tap.
  • One size fits Renthal Twinwall handlebars, the second size fits all other aluminum handlebars.
  • Securely mounts G2 and all aluminum enduro-style handguards.
  • Detailed instructions outline simple installation.

    Great upgrade from regular steel inserts! Never come loose!

    The devil is always in the details. Products like these are an affordable and very effective means to make your bike work just t a little better. I lost the bar-end hardware that came with my hand guards out on the trail. I therefore had to ride home with a lose hand guard, which sucked. I am very thankful for this product and I recommend it to all my riding buddies.

    I can’t believe I have been racing for years without G2 nylon threaded bar end mounts. Multiple tip-overs and a good crash and they have not moved one bit! Great product!

    Great product. Easy to install, makes busters rock solid.

    These are a must on all my bikes now. Threading may take some time but it is worth it. Makes removing your hand guards for MX a lot quicker and easier. Guards stay tighter longer.

    Big upgrade for any bike, really nice to get rid of the wedges that are troublesome to tighten and come loose with impact. With these inserts, your handguards will never come loose.

    This product is one of those things that make you say “why didn’t I think of that?”.
    Simple , easily installed, and works as advertised.
    Can’t really ask for much more

    I finally bought these on a friends recommendation. They are awesome, easy to install and my hand guards are rock solid. They will be on every bike I own in the future.

    Should’ve gotten these along time ago. Top quality and they ensure the guards won’t move.

  20. Rated 5 out of 5


    This product is a great solution for bar-end mounting problems. They are super strong and allow easy remove/replacement of the Barkbusters for grip maintenance. Brilliant marketing to sell the product with or, without the Tap!

  21. Rated 5 out of 5


    Another great idea from G2! We got these with our first set of G2 handguards and were not disappointed. They really do work. They give the hand guards a rock solid mount that can take some serious abuse that the Minnesota woods can dish out. These go on all of our race bikes now.

    Nothing worse than crashing and having aluminum handguards spin or pull out of bar end. This product prevents that problem and also makes basic maintenance with regards to removing handguards and putting them back on quicker. Watch the Youtube installation video for tips on how to ensure the nylon locks into bar well. I use them on Twinwall bars and no issues.

    I install these on every dirt bike that I own. No complaints & they make riding less stressful. Nothing like a loose or lost handguard on the trail. Thanks again G2 !!

    Perfect. Easy to install and rock solid for usinging bark buster type hand guards. No more slipping and feels like there a little less vibration using nylon

    a drop of oil while tapping cuts easier and use shop vac to suck files from bar while tapping.

    If you are looking for a true way to stop your hand guards from moving when you have a get off this is the key to making that happen. There is nothing more frustrating than tagging a tree or going down in a race and having your controls and hand guards not in the correct position when you get yourself and your bike back up off the ground. These are simple to install and you know when you buy from G2 you are getting the best quality and materials out on the market.

    Simple to install and a great product. Best way to mount hand guards.

    This is the only way to go unless you don’t mind dealing with the friction bits failing and allowing your bark busters to spin out of control.
    Yes, it’s some work to tap the ends of the bars, get over it. These inserts work, it’s going to take some time, just do it.
    Yes, they cost. …Still worth it.
    No, I don’t need a discount for writing this review. 20% isn’t worth keeping up with.
    Thanks anyway,

    How come nobody thought of this before? Should be standard on all bikes.

  33. Rated 5 out of 5


    These inserts have worked great. I bought them along with the G2 competition handguards & handshields. The system is rock solid. Installation was easy. With that said, tapping the bar ends took a little longer than I expected. Take your time & use plenty of lube. (I know…right?) These will be going in all future handlebars.

    I had the tap. no prob with install. nylon barends worked fine!
