Handlebars

2 posts in this topic

Hi All

Is it just me , or does the standard handlebar not have enough rise . When I stand up , it feels as if I must reach down for the bar . I am about 1.8 m tall . How much more rise before it feels like you are riding a Harley (no good)?

Thanks

Jan

Jan, I had problems with that too on my 600 so I went to the XR desert bar which helped. On my DRZ and XR650 I went with the Scotts triple clamp in the forward position and went with the CR-Hi bend. With your arms higher and your body farther foward your not so cramped and don't have to bend over. You can also get bar spacers that are 1" higher and I think 1/2" foward. This way you can use your stock bars
