Suzuki Intruder 250 handlebars

  1. Hey everyone, Before i start with my question and thoughts, I will let you know a little bit of background as to why I want to do this rather than sell it and get a meatier bike. I use this bike to get to work 5 days a week. its about 35 - 45 minutes each way. and coming home in traffic is a biatch.

    Basically I'm thinking about getting a slightly narrower, drag bar and less 'intrusive' (i know...) mirrors.

    I love the bike for my daily commute, the petrol per week is about $16.00 compared to the $70 odd bucks i was paying in my falcon. I am not selling the bike and upgrading when I am off restrictions, I will get a second bike for weekend cruising most likely. The only problem I have with this bike is the wide bars and bulky round mirrors that stick up like a bugs antennae.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on what i should get, how i should go about changing them over (can i do it myself?) and anything else like getting new grips to go with? or what kind of mirrors?

    Links would be really helpful. I think the bars are 22mm (7/8") diameter. I don't think i need new risers, just use the ones already on there.

    thanks in advance
