We love the Flexx too, much more space on them that factory bars and the added bonus of taking the anger out of your wrists.

We have added an extra bush on the inside too which just adds to their ability to suck up corrugations and potholes easily.

Extra bush



Our setup including the extra width of the Euro switches

Thanks for the trick of adding that extra bushing, I hadn't thought of that.

I designed and made the tank bag here in Cambodia. I like the way it contours to the contours. Just the right angle to not be in my way during stand up riding.

You're welcome, it makes them just that bit more flexi on corrugations and potholes, also check the pivot bolts cos ours where way to tight not allowing any flexx.

Note the Red bush is the hardest one, can't remember if blue or yellow is softer but I think the blue is.

I was looking a this combination : My Rally Connex riser and Pro Taper Carmichael Contour.

I think the height of bar and riser will be good for me (5' 10") and the Sweep (55mm) will be totally different then stock.

950A was Renthal 792-01.
775mm Wide, 120mm Rise, 105mm Sweep

Hard to find, but been happy with it (on top of ~30mm risers) for over 50k miles.
800mm Wide, 120mm Rise, 87mm Sweep
Plenty of straight length for the controls.

Suggestions on what's closest to the stock bars, but higher? Already have risers, need higher bars as well.

Really like it !

kaoko

DirtJack...question on how is kaoko installed with hdb handguards. Did you cut right handlebar to fit the kaoko and are you using the threaded insert supplied by hdb handguards.
I just installed hdb next gen handguards on my super enduro and ordered the kaoko for aftermarket handguards. I have not received the kaoko so concerns is correct installation.
Thanks
Pepe

The plastic hand guards in the picture wouldn't keep the flex bars from flexing. With Cycras or the like, I use the BRP mounts which allow the guards to pivot independently of the bars . Works great....

FWIW

You actually cut the kaoko almost flush and use every bits provided by hdb
Works great.
