There are several of us that are using the srvt bars. A few of us got the 2 1/4 inch but the newer one's are 2 inch

You are going to really enjoy these. They should have come on the bike.

Arrow Srvt

I have the 2 1/4". They are a tight fit with the stock cables but the bike just wouldn't fit me without them. I believe they went to 2" for a better fit. I would have gone 3" if possible, the stock bars suck - bigtime!

Good luck

I got mine a couple weeks ago, I must have got the 2 1/2s. Really a tight fit, had to really stretch a couple of the cables

However, they are much more comfortable.

Its too bad Victory doesn't anticipate this and make the cables just a tad longer.

You'd think they'd offer the bars themselves and leave enough slack in the cables as well. I'd say they're leaving a few bucks on the table.

There is no doubt that Victory is aware of these bars. Since they are so involved in making their profit from accessory sales (gouging in my opinion) you would think they would offer a option for the XC/XR.
From what I have read the +2 bars fit rather good. I have the +2 1/4 bars. It was tight at first but someone posted that you could get more room for the brake line buy just adjusting the angle. Which helped and also moving the throttle cable.
They are not under stress now, I do not see needing new brake line or throttle cables.
It's a shame that Victory is offering some accessories that are over priced but some things that are a benefit they are not offering.

The XR guys do have a cheap option: The XC bars are about 3.5" taller due to the difference in risers. When I posted a request (another forum) for used bars, I got quite a few responses from XC guys that had switched to SRVT bars. The expense I ran into was that the 3" was too much for my cables to stretch so I spent $300 on braided brake, clutch and throttle cables. The complete braided look is great, so I'm happy I was "forced" into that mod.
Hey, this was my first post....how did I do?

If anyone that has swapped their OEM CC bars is interested in selling their OEM's please PM me. I'd like to try them out on my CR.
