Engine Guard Rain/Wind Covers

My wife has a 2014 Rebel 250 w/ engine highway bars/guards.

I'm looking to purchase rain/wind covers (i.e., engine guard chaps) that fit around the highway bars/engine guards, to protect her from wind, rain ... wind especially during next season's cold.

Do you have a pair you want to sell or can you share with me where I might be able to purchase them new? I'm not having any luck w/ online Web searches to locate anything.

Thank you

An alternate idea, I purchased a set of leather chaps and have been so very thankful ever since.
they make an amazing amount of difference when riding in the cold, and are very much water-shedding (firehose-gullywasher rain excluded)

Thanks, She currently wears a ski bib on the colder days. Having the guard covers would be added wind protection.

Please, get her something else besides a ski bib, nylon and dacron melts way too easily if she accidentally touches the ski bib legs to the hot exhaust and could produce a 2nd/3rd degree burn from the molten plastic.

I'm still cleaning the sneaker sole leavings on my mufflers from a passenger that put her shoes on the pipes instead of the pegs.


thermal bottoms and fleece lined cargo pants are easy to find and will protect from the heat instead of adding to the injury, or lined mechanic's coveralls.

I've been riding the Rebel in cold weater with insulated nylon bibs for over a decade with no problems. Given how the stock exhaust is mounted, it's not easy to come in contact with it.

Oven cleaner (the strong, stinky stuff) does a good job of removing shoe sole residue from hot pipes.
