Another handlebar post - looking for slightly lowered bars
Hey guys, i know its been talked about at length on these and other forums but i can't find the exact answer to my question.
I would like to lower the height of my handlebars a bit compared to the stock height. I'm doing this mostly for aesthetics, i have some risers on there now to bring the bars back a bit which helps me during stop and go traffic so im not rammed into the tank however they also raise the height of the bars and i hate the way the bars look up so high.
Anyone have any opinions on the low bends? Im just looking for a slightly lower bar height and slightly more aggressive lean.
Get the mediums. They have a slightly lower but more aggressive bend than stock.
I loved them on the 9'er.
The highs are close to stock. The mediums are between the lows and stock. Much better feel than highs that I tried first (didn't like them). I shortened mine 1/2" per side to assure proper cable/wire, etc, length.
Much better than stock IMO. Stock bars have a weird bend to them.
Find someone In your area that has some and give them a try. Just keep in mind you cut them down to your own personal length for me, mine are cut as short as possible. Other people like the wider grip.
