Hand guards for vultus

Does anyone in UK or elsewhere have hand guards fitted to the Honda NM4
Looking to buy hand guards but not sure which and if they will obscure the mirror
Thanks
Carol

The fairing on the NM4 does a pretty darn good job of blocking wind on the NM4. That said not sure of a make or mode that would work, but you may have mirror issues. I have Roxy risers and dropped the handle bars for more comfort and wind, and had to add a wide angle stick on for the mirrors. Adding new mirrors to the ends of the handle bars would fix this, or if you can find some handlebar clamp ons.

Another way to resolve your issues might be to add some sort of deflectors attached to the housing above and below the mirrors, effectively giving you a wider vertical deflection.
I would imagine something similar in style to the honda add-on deflectors on the front faring. Really any wedge shape at all should do it and would probably go with the angles of the bike nicely. They would look like ailerons.
You could probably pick up a thick piece of lexan and cut it into a wedge and support. Tape it to the mirror housing to test out.
Then if it does the job you could take the time to make it prettier, maybe spray paint it black matte to match the mirror housing etc.
