I know that these are typically used for ATV, but do you think they would work on a bike?

Forget the looks, would you want to land a triple with those things on your bike? Even on an ATV the whole concept seems stupid. The handlebar's leverage factor could easily overcome the clamping force holding those things in position and cause the bars to rotate backwards or forwards upon landing. :thumbsup: From their website: "Caution: Rox Speed FX is not responsible for injury or death resulting from improper installation!" How about from normal use?

They might be OK to give a child's mini a little more room for growth, but I'd never use such a product on a full size bike or quad.

For that price, just buy a new set of higher bars!

It would be alright if they were one piece, but I certainly wouldn't put them on my bike.

I'm thinking that they would move on you, I think you'd be better off using bar risers and a different bar bend.. I'm sure they would work I'm just not too sure how well.. I wonder if your cables would be long enough. :thumbsup:

It wouldn't be in place of higher bars - it would be in place of something like the AJ risers. But I guess they do have a tendancy to rotate more :thumbsup:

I still ride and used to race 4-wheelers. I'd be scared of them. I don't see how the handlebar clamp could hold those things tight enough. Check out one that is " one peice ". Parts Unlimited has them. I still don't like the idea of it. I want my bars mounted DIRECTLY to the stearing unit whether its a triple clamp or stearing stem. I landed a big double on my old LT500R and the stearing stem broke when I hit the ground at 45 mph. That was BAD. I don't want to bite the dust again over something like that.

I was going to say that but I didn't want to give a quad rider good advice :thumbsup:
