Custom bars for hornet....Help

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' at netrider.net.au started by Removed_User_5, Jun 10, 2006.

  1. Hey all,
    Since Im still in recovery mode and cannot ride , i was going to buy myself a new set of bars for My Hornbag 250.
    I have seen streetbars on Austreetfighter.com and they look thi biz.
    Im going to need a more wider grip to help my plate in the arm sit better.


    Now the help I need is to determine if the bars need drilled for screws for the instruments ?
    Is there anything special with the cables and throttle i need to do to swap the bars over ?
    Since the bars are wider , will all the instrument fit like the brake lines ?

    Anybody up for giving me a hand ?

  2. stookie,

    I'll give you a hand to fit em if you like...seems I have your bike :p

  3. good idea on the bars, just do buy off that overpriced idiot, shop arround (local bikes shops) and you can get the same thing for 1/2 that price

    I have fitted a braced set from ASF to my Hooner 600.
    PM me and I can get you some braced bars for around $60.
    If you ask nicely, I will even help you fit them! :wink:
    Totally transforms the way the bike rides, for the better!
    Daz. :wink:
  5. i love the renthals on my 900. been through two sets of cheaper braced bars. they don't last one stack.

    you may have to reroute some cables just to ensure they reach easily. but it shouldn't be much.
