How do you like the wider bars?

I'm curious why you elected to put on the dampened risers. Granted there is snow on the ground where I live so I haven't had a chance to ride my R off-road yet. Is their a vibration issue? Thanks in advance for the feed back.

I like dampened risers or bars for offroad....they have no benefit to me on the street as I don't notice any vibes...

Also, my 2013 has the bolt there.
Do you have any more information about that kit?

I might need to change my handle bars as well because the OEM bars are joke . The bars are so narrow I can bed on it I had wide bars on my 2010 Kawasaki gtr 1400. It's like a fucking sports bike . Who ever design this Ktm got no idea or never ride bikes before.

Never mind, found them.

Nowwhat -
I too would like the name of the manufacturer (and a source) for the risers you are using. After four wrist surgeries and seven other hand surgeries, dampening vibration tends to be a necessity.

I wonder....

I wonder if it pisses off the engineers that folks are putting knobbies and wide bars on their sports bike?

The boasting on page 407 is so immature and pointless seating at a keyboard that the bemmeristi are laughing not with you but at you.
