Will the 1 1/8" bar fit on the WR?

7 posts in this topic

I am wanting to order these today so that I can have them to ride this weekend, but does anyone know if the 1 1/8" Bar will fit the stock WR clamps?

Not sure what year bike you are talking about but it doesn't really matter. If you have the stock tripleclamp set up you will have to use the 7/8" bars.

You can get a set of adapters that bolt into the stock bar clamps and permit installation of 1-1/8 bars. It raises the bars up a tad as well, which I liked in my situation. Just be sure to use loctite on the bolts in the bottom piece. They're not too expensive. I got mine on ebay. Much cheaper than a new upper triple clamp.

You can get an adapter that raised the bars about 3/4 " and bolts down to the stock upper clamp. They allow you to fit a 1 1/8" bar to the stock setup. I am currently running them and have been very happy. Hope this helps.

For me personally using the adapters was not really an option which is why I didn't say anything about them. Unless you are well over six feet tall, raising the bar height can have a fairly significant affect on how the bike handles and feels. But to each his own. If you have an 06' you can just change the perch to an oversize bar setup, Scotts sells them. If you have an 05' or older you will need to change the triplelclamp.

Good luck.
