Lower handle bar
« on: 11 January, 2017, 04:48:27 PM »
Hi.
I have just mounted a new handle bar with a lower profile and in black. I found out that a CB1300 handle have just about same geometry but lower. Think it looks better and fit my riding position perfect. Found it on eBay; http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/151363322638?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Any clearance issues with the tank on full lock?

It was some adjusting with the angle but when it is upright you can turn max without touching tank or fairing.

Interesting. Most of us need to raise the handlebars! Just shows we are all different. At least Biffers have adjustable seats, unlike 90% of bikes. Can you imagine a car without being able to adjust seat and even steering wheel positions?

Lower handlebars for me too.
Renthall 756 which is "road high" in their range, but lower and wider than stock.
Most important for me, is the more open angle of the grip.
Hated the closed angle of the stock, which is why I changed it.
I think I want to go even lower, and no I havent bought the wrong bike. I couldnt live with a clip on superbike.
Just want a sportier Biffer, and it can be arranged.
Want to try the front position of the handlebar mounts too. Still in the stock rear position from 2011 bought new(stock 2008)

I recently raised the seat to the middle position (from the lowest position) and it's made a big difference to how the bike 'feels'  :018:. Somehow, it's feels much 'nimbler'  :028:. My bike is a Mark 1. Personally, I quite like the angle/set-up of the factory bars. I've got mine set in the neutral position i.e. the bars line up exactly with the two punch marks on the handlebar clamps so they aren't tilted forward or backwards.
