They are great IMO.
That is a good looking bar! Not much rise - good. Is that the Rizoma MA010? Also, what mounts are required to bolt to the top plate?

They are the MA005 The MA010 didn't exist when I mounted these. And the little bit of lift helps to keep the switches from hitting the tank.
AZ405 is the type of mount.

Your bike? If so, what did you do with the instruments? I like that.

Cash, looks like that bar might work for me - http://www.bikemaster.com/handlebars.html - bar "H" on that bikemaster page. Do your handgrips/controls clear the gas tank at full lock? That is my problem with the RS bar.

Very astute there! I did have to raise up the bar clamps to make the Magura (I think you've got the Magura, too) MC. The problem was not the clearance with the tank(I have a toaster tank). There was a clearance problem with the banjo fitting on the MC and the fork spring caps. I made a pair of little spacers out of 1/4" aluminum flat bar which fit between the lower clamp pad and the top plate of the triple. If you go way back to the thread I started a long time ago, you might be able to see the spacers in my pictures, but they hide well.


Oh my God there's an awful lot of snow out there.

Thank you Anton,

Not my bike. It was my girlfriends bike.
IMO the stock dash was to high and didn't look ok with the old style headlight mounts I used get the headlight a bit lower, and to get rid of the original plastic mounts. Also used an R80 mono headlight to fit the ignition switch and give it a cleaner look.

Rizoma Bars

I liked the lok of the Rizoma bars and bought a set for my /7. They are labeled as 22mm and they measure as such but the clutch and throttle perches are not going on and I don't want to force them too hard. Prutser just wondering if you had to sand the ends down to mount allow the perches to slide on?

Don't sand the bars, open up the perch clamps.

The class tool is an HVAC tubing expander, ideally a live one rather than the hammer-in one.

No need to sand down before everything fitted. I mounted about 20 of those rizoma bars.
But I was using the fat bars although it shouldn't make a difference.
You could try to put the controles on the wrong way to check if its the clamps of your controles that is to tight or its the diam. of the handle bars.

They are cast won't they break if you try to expand them?
