    Pro taper bars installed on 1700 vmax

    Just finished installing pro taper evo bars on my 09 vmax. Could not find info on the stock bends so did some careful measuring to find them and some more measuring to see where I want the new ones. Ended up being the factory KTM bend. Left them the full width and the feel perfect so far...

    Vstar 1100 handlebars

    My wife has an 07 v star 1100, she loves the bike. Her only complaint is the handlebars are to far forward, if she straight arms she can utilize her back rest, but it fatigues her arms big time, so she has to lean forward to have some bend in her elbows. I told her to pull the lever and move the...

    Looking for handlebars

    What size center do I need to have when purchasing new handlebars. Can I get away with a 5.5" or do I have to look for 6" center. Having a difficult time finding the right size bar I want up here in Ontario but may have finally found some but want to make sure they will fit before ordering. Thanks

    Three piece Danmoto Clip On bars - or - flipping the stock bars ?

    Decided to try out the Danmoto bars and spent half a day getting them configured. Due to it being a three piece setup, there are a lot of permutations. I wanted the clamps to have the stubs oriented at 9 and 3 to clamp the risers to, but that ran into a fitment issue with the master cylinders...

    Taller handlebars for Max.

    Finished my latest mod - http://www.vmaxforum.net/showthread.php?t=36255 Worked out well, but I won't know the effect of the vibration-reducing addition, till I actually ride the thing. These latest bars stretch the limit as far as what's possible, with STOCK hydraulic and throttle...

    Handlebars or spacers??

    Have done my homework as far as searching goes on here. Have found both spacer information and a little bit on handlebars but information is usually missing, so..... What I am after is to have a bit more mechanical advantage with a slightly longer bar as well as moving the bars back a little...

    Everything Handlebars (Gauges/Grips/Mirrors/Etc)

    At the moment I just have a slipstreamer shield quick release mount on the bars. Planning for the future though. This is what I think I'm arriving at for the cockpit: Driven D3 Grips. Black on black baby. Going with these over the Kury options because they're alloy/PVC and no rubber. The...

    Bar Snake

    http://www.barsnake.com/ I highly recommend this product to those who have problems with their hands tingling or going numb while riding. It's not going to cure the problem completely, but it will greatly reduce the vibration resonating through the handlebars and make your riding experience...

    Crooked handlebars

    Hello all, I did a search about this but couldn't find anything that addresses this issue. When riding the bike, the handlebars are not straight, i.e. they are positioned towards the right side, but the bike tracks straight. Is there a way to adjust this? It seems to be the whole front end...

    Aftermarket handlebars

    Well I tried a search but never found anything overly useful so figured I'd ask outright. I am looking for a replacement handle bar about 31" wide and about 2" taller than stock. Any recommendations?
