Default handlebar replacement

I found these on Ebay.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-Black-Moto...60635324317%26

I was comparing them to the stock measurments from http://www.sideroadcycles.com/Import...ckBarsOne.html Im not 100% sure if I would need to reroute or get longer cables.

Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanx in advance.

The center width where the risers clamp on seems a little small.? I would measure your riser width to make sure there is room. I am gonna measure mine cause if they do fit then I want some too.

I see you have ISO grips. Is it possible to remove and reuse the left grip with damaging it?

I would measure from the outside of each riser right?

Yeah iso grips, i would spray wd40 and use air pressure. If not I would strong wire and roll it around or just a set of Avon grips lol

It looks they would work because what you increase in height, you will lose in pullback. The 1" part of the bars would have to fit within the outside of the risers I would think.

for $ 50 bucks it looks like a good gamble.

I'm having my dealer install new bars on my CR next Friday, I have iso grips installed as well. The tech said that 80 percent of the time he can save the left grip...... I hope so

Yeah I'm thinking I could angle them back to me a little. What do you think about cables. Would they have to be longer?

I would think they would be long enough since your stock bar pullback is 15". sometimes you have some extra length tucked into the headlight bucket.

the good thing about doing a mod no one else has done is, you have a more unique bike....... The bad thing is you can't be sure everything will work without buying more stuff, like I said before for $50 it will be worth it even if you have to buy a few cables.

Yes, outside of one riser to the outside of the other. I am going to measure mine in the morning. Did not get to it today. I'm thinking of sending a message to the EBAY vendor to see if they can give me an exact measurement of the opening in the middle.

Does anyone out there like their Avon grips? I went from ISO grips on my last bike to Avon heated grips on my Kingpin. The Avon grips just aren't nearly as comfortable. They look fine, and don't seem cheap. But the rubber is tough and not cushioned like the ISOs. Plus the throttle bar is too short and ends up right inside your palm instead of a full length brace for easy throttling.

Hijacker LOL. I havent heard anything good or bad with Avon grips. I might just do the ISOs again they arent that expensive, though I do get some pain in my hands from time to time.
