Renthal high bars
I was thinking of trying Renthal high's.
I know they are wider.Are they any higher,is the sweep more or less than the oem's and i take it they clear the fairing at full lock?
Any cable issues.
Thanks in advance :152:
Oh just noticed the single pipe Badger.Any info on how that was done etc :028:

I have just fitted renthal high bars (photos to follow) in a bid to relieve a thumb muscle related issue.

The bars are marginally wider (about 3cm in total, 1.5cm each side) and the sweep is slightly less (about 5-10mm but is difficult to measure accurately), same height. 

I also have SW Motech up and back risers so no issues with fitment with these.

Be aware that the left and right switch gear do have a "pin" (about 5mm) for locating/reacting twist so a hole will need to be drilled for each as the renthals do not have a hole pre-drilled,

Hope that helps

It's not worth doing something unless someone, somewhere, would much rather you weren't doing it!

I went with Renthal mediums in the end, suited me better, I ground down the locating pins enough to grip the new bars and offer enough to relocate on the standard bars rather than drill holes.

The 4-1 pipe I got off of Deecat, the left outlet was cut off and a nicely welded plate added, it now resides with vhorwits in France, my bike is back to standard now.

I know this is a pretty old post, but, when using the standard risers, will both the Medium and High Renthals fit with the standard hoses?

I don't particularly need to go any lower than the standard bars, but would like the bars to be a little wider.

Was the extra 3cm very noticeable when using the High Renthals, compared to the standard bars?

Hi this is my first post and haven't even said hello yet!

Renthal high and medium bars fit without any mods to cables or hoses, I am running with mediums at the moment.

That's great to know that no mods are required.

Is the extra width of the mediums, very noticeable compared to the original bars?

And do they feel much lower than standard bars?

Cheers

They are slightly but not noticeably wider, I cant give you any dimensions at the moment as I am away from the bike but ,for me anyway, they are very natural and more comfortable position, plus I was never keen on the shape of the originals.

This is the best picture I have to show how they look.
