Higher handlebars
on: June 24, 2020, 10:52:50 AM
Hi all
 
  Has anyone put higher bars on their 2013-2016 Street triples? I'm looking for a bit more comfort and not leant over so much. I already have 20mm risers but still not very comfortable.

Thanks

Ben

I have the 20mm SW Motech spacers on my 2014 R. Does not look like you can go much higher without rerouting or modifying the cables and hoses. Especially when the bars are turned to full lock left or right. Might be a cheaper option to experiment with slightly taller spacers, 25mm or 30mm. Thought I saw some on eBay but can't find them anymore.

Cheers guys. The SW risers are the ones I have installed. I have been looking at renthal bars but no one shows a comparison between each style they offer. Thinking I might have to pop up to sportsbikeshop in Bletchley and try a few next to the bike

The Renthal website lists dimensions & has an interactive comparison tool. All you need to know is the dimensions of your existing bars.

Thats the one thing I couldn't find, the dimensions of the standard bars. I wanted to avoid having to possibly order and keep sending back bars until I found the right ones. Would be handy if manufacturers put a selection of bars side by side so you can view the differences.

A set of vernier or digital calipers is your friend for situations like this.

I agree.....I use my digital set (not worth getting the sliding scale set if u got older eyes...even if you go to specsavers  :005:)....at least once per week. Also bought a set for work as I use them there about once a week too. A cheap set is good enough although I got some Mitoyota ones on Ebay.
