Handlebar swap for a Triumph Street Triple

Discussion in 'Modifications and Projects' at netrider.net.au started by chana74, May 15, 2008.

  1. Hi

    Does anyone know the dimensions for the handlebars on a street triple. I am trying to source one to allow for a more tucked position and to get a black one instead of the stock. Also would the swap be easy enough for someone to do over the weekend. I am pretty mechanically inclined.



    Thanks

  4. All good. :LOL: been looking on the net but must be my choice in google key words that i am not getting a hit. i ride pushies as well and basically bicycles have standard dimensions for the diameter. Was not sure if its the same deal motorcycles.

  5. so you own a street triple?

    im guessing you bought it new since theyre a pretty modern bike.

    tryed the owners manual? if that fails, try contacting a triumph dealer?


    not sure if it helps but its worth a try

  6. Yeah i was fotunate enough to not have to join the waiting list. walked in at the right time at the right place and someone's deal fellk through....

    I may just let the dealer install it when they do the 1st service.

    Stay tuned as i am getting loads of goodies from anodised bolts to sliders to pazzos.

  13. I could be up for that chana...

    Which of those bars and adapters did you end up using for your mods? Also, how involved was the install process? I notice that the stock handlebars (or at least the after market speed bars) have holes for for fitting the various instruments; do the Rizomas have the equivalent or did you have to do some drilling?

    Cheers,
    the git

  14. I got the Over sized bars in red and black 42mm risers. No holes at all in the bars and they are a tad wider than the stock.

    I tried installing myself but access to the riser bolt is limited so decided to leave it to the professionals..

    As far as i can see all the cables for the street are external so i would not think there would be any need for drilling.. at anyrate a centre punch and a sharp bit would get through that aluminium no prob..

    i'll post some pics on my garage soon...

  16. Yeah, hurray for local distributors! Go them for importing, slapping on a 'because I can' tax and flogging it off to us at twice the price (I'm thinking Pazzo levers, US$175 or AU$335). I could stomach a 25% premium (GST, smaller market, local support etc) but a 100% premium! Stuff that!!!

    Now if they MADE them here, well, then I'd be more receptive (e.g. my lovely Staintune pipe)...

  17. Yeah.. as much as i would like to support local distributors its not really justified.. besides the belly pan, flyscreen and visors, everything that i have bought are from overseas.. I paid at least an additional 500 for the local stuff (but got it all financed with my bike so spreading the payments over the period)..

    I estimate that i have saved closed to 800 for all my other purchases. The biggest savings will be for a set of cans.. 2k for Arrow slip ons vs 1200 delivered. 800 saved
