WTB: stock 919 handle bars

I'm looking for a set of stock 919 handlebars.

I'm finding the Renthal 784 bar that came on the bike when I bought it puts me in a slightly uncomfortable riding position, so I want to try going back to stock to see if that helps at all.

How about a set of Renthal High Road bars?

I have an extra set - brand new, never mounted. I'm running the exact same bars and love them. The geometry is very close to the stock bars and the vibes are barely noticeable with these. And I'm not even running bar ends - just bar end mirrors.

I had the same dilemma with uncomfortable position when I tried the Ultra Lows. Not sure if the 784 Bars are similar to the UL's but sounds like you prefer the same upright position as I do.

$50 plus shipping. Paypal accepted.

PM me your shipping info if intersted.

Is the bar already drilled?

No - the Renthal bar is new, not drilled, unmounted.

I realize that the name of this thread is "stock 919 handle bars" and no offense intended towards zookmor here. But the stock steel bars are bad about transmitting vibrations and numbing the hands on extended rides. Myself and several others here on WT have switched to Renthals or other aftermarket bars for this reason alone. The aluminum alloys used makes a huge difference in vibrations and strength.

Just speaking from experience here. If you find a great deal on stock bars that's cool - someone else will pick up the Renthals.
