66cm Clip ons to 50cm straight handlebar

Discussion in 'Modifications and Projects' started by Salad Cycle, Apr 16, 2015.

  1. Hello, couple questions.

    Compared to 66cm clip ons will a 50cm straight handlebar be too unwieldy for street use?

    What would be the best method to make such a conversion?

    Reason: Aerodynamic. Fit handlebars inside fairing. Minimum legal width is 50cm.

  2. My gsxr1000 streetfighter has a custom top triple tree that u can bolt risers to for the straight bar. I'll try and post a pic next interval
  3. Here u go

  4. It's a 125. You could steer it with a firm grip on the stem top nut.

    Limiting factor is more likely to be whether you can fit grips, switchgear, throttle assembly and levers into the reduced space available.
  5. That is reassuring. The handle bar stuff uses 46cm total so I have 4cm for risers. If the handlebar is angled I'll get a little more space between the risers.
  6. Yes, but most of the stuff I mentioned pretty much has to go outboard of the risers. Might be possible to shave some of it down though.
