renthal ul

does anyone have a set of renthal ultra lows they are wanting to part with? not a huge fan of the stock bars and really want to try something else.

They really aren't that expensive. I bought mine on amazon for about $50.00.

Good for many hours a day.
Easier bucking the wind than with stock bars which are absolute sail makers.

Hey it looks like you had engine detail done...the case and the top of block right??? I was going to do the same thing with mine, I just wanna do the exhaust first. Looking at $600-$700 for slip ons installed but havent decided witch ones. Kinda small in your pic but they look sweet.

The last od the New Zealand ones have a full black engine too. Personally I am not a fan - it looked too blacked out. I'm a big fan of the black and titanium look.


Ultra Lows - just buy a set - you'll like em. Do a search as somewhere on here I posted a picture of UL's against the stock bars. Basically they are wider, lower and further forwards - you get a more aggressive lean forwards when riding.
