Looking for advice on handlebars. Searched the threads but couldn’t find exactly what I need. I’m 6’5” with a 36” inseam and am looking for the tallest handlebar combination I can get. I am currently running 30mm spacers with the stock bar and need to get more height to keep from bending over when I am standing. I read somewhere that 2” rox risers is the most you can go with the stock handlebars before you start having problems with cable and wire lengths. That doesn’t sound right the way some people have described installing bars that were supposed to have much more rise. I guess the pullback and width would have a lot to do with it though. Anyway can anyone tell me specifically what bars they are running that offer a significant increase in height without stretching things too far? I want to stick with steel bars so I don’t have to get adapters for my bark busters mainly because I am cheap and so is steel. Let me know if you are using risers or not, are cutting down the bar ends, etc. TIA

I want to replace the brake & clutch levers - these are just "cheap" compared to my former motorcycle(s).

What's the best upgrade that others have used with success?

Thanks,

RS

Good point!

Basically one of the reasons I did this.

When you look at my Dyno plot the A/F ratio lies between 13.2 and 13.8 through the RPM range with an overall average of 13.4.

If you look at the FMF Dyno runs in my previous post the A/F ratio runs between 12.0 and 14.0 at the best setting. In his write up he even states that there was not much they could do to tighten that up that range with the FMF programmer.

There's a ton of them on eBay. I bought some anodized ones for my Scrambler that were identical to Pazzo levers from China for about $30 delivered. Those in the link are more expensive, but if you do a little searching I'm sure you can find something.

If you get some, keep us (me!) updated.

Now I have a question for peeps. Anyone order anything from Eastern Beaver? I ordered the 3 circuit solution from them on the 7th. I waited a couple of days and I got no contact from them at all until I sent an email asking if they even got the order, they replied "got it - thanks", then since then (10 days ago) no communication whatsoever. I keep hoping it'll just show up in the mail, and I hate bothering people if they're really busy. It really bugs me when retailers don't communicate.

I've had excellent service from him over the years. Have a 3CS on my WRR and I was so happy with it I just installed another one on my 800GS. He makes these up as orders come in and he could just be out of some component right now. It's a one-person operation. And he's in Japan although he's a fellow Canuck. His stuff is top-notch, well worth a bit of patience and a wait. Dunno what the delay is, but I suspect he prefers to work on orders over answering emails. Just one happy customer's 2˘.

That's all I need to hear, so I'll be patient. Thanks.

My lovely wife rides (my) stock height WRR.

She's got a 32-33" inseam though.... 5-11.

Naturally, I can't find a single picture if her on it now...

Dude, seriously, now you are just spending money to spend money.

The brake and clutch levers? Really? Really?
