Suburban Machinery Z handlebars

Stock is 660wide, 102 rise and 190 back, these bars are 685W, 50R, 120B. So lower, wider and not back as much as stock. These were on the bike when purchased and I'm replacing them. New cost is $165 + shipping, I'd like $85 + shipping. They have attachment nuts in them for stock bar weights. Email me [email protected].

Cmon guys, all you need to do is go to the Suburban Machinery site -- there are plenty of pictures of those bars on a 919. I know you're just busting his chops, but anyone interested can take a look.
http://www.suburban-machinery.com/honda_919.htm
They may be a bit too far forward for shorter riders.
Funny, I met Sokali for lunch yesterday and he asked if I would ride his bike and tell him of any problems it may have, and the first thing I noticed was the Renthal Ultra Lows are acceptably low but oh brother are they WIDE!!! Of course my bars are as narrow as they can be (560mm) and still fit on the bike, so I may not be the one to ask about that.

WARNING! Small threadjack.
Another thing I noticed was the bafflectomized stock mufflers set up a resonance in my helmet that would absolutely require ear plugs to go more than a couple miles. Oh they sounded decent, but just not my cup of earl grey.

Back to the subject.
Somebody buy those bars if only to show rabbott that we're not all a bunch of looky loos. I don't need them.

Rob

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

[B]I happen to like the wide bars, its a personal thing. Never felt comfortable with narrow bars, reminds me of the 80's BMW 90/6.

They felt more comfortable than the Renthals. They're perfect for a track bike.

You know I just don't understand the business of wanting wider bars on this bike. Of course let me say first that I am one of the short guys so reaching way out there ain't my thing. But it's not like we're ever horsing these bikes through a tight switchback in the sand or dirt around pine tree. What do you need all that leverage for?

Doesn't look like Rabbott's ever coming back to this thread.

FWIW Major Nickmo has the SM bars on his old bike, which Ernie bought from him.
Ernie had a hard time with them and hated them.

Too wide IMHO.

Sorry Rabbot

Yeah, take Ducati monsters for example. I sat on a friend's Monster and measured the bars from end to end at 29" or something. It felt soo unnatural and unnecessary to have your arms spread out that far apart on a sportbike.

Sorry about slow response, been working on the 919 to get it running. The link is http://www.suburban-machinery.com/honda_919.htm so you can see several pics. S/S so they can be polished if you want to get a high gloss look. They have the nuts inside for the stock bar weights. Ron

I'm guessing these bars would be better for naked bikes doing highway speeds as the forward inclination of the rider would be welcome to balance the air pressure on the torso.

Here's the link to the Suburban Mach. web site for these bars.

Just for the record these bars work nicely for riding the 919 on the track. I had trouble cornering comfortably with the stock bars as i felt like i was hanging from a jungle gym. The Suburban Machinery bars will feel almost like sportbike clipons, so they are stilll comfortable for me when touring. On the street you will have to mind your riding posture more... that is using more leg and core muscles to ride or your arms will fatigue.

I have noticed the same thing, most especially at ~4,000 rpm.
