I have one hand, need to have 2 perches on the left side plus move the start/kill switch. This means that I need slightly longer handle bars by about 1 inch because there just isnt room on the stock bars.

I do not know the length of the stock ones so I dont know how long I need them which makes parts shopping hard.

Can anyone fill me in on this?


Aside from tyga and bikers who makes bars that are bolt on for the cbr?

Because the bars are adjustable from left to right, I have about 10-15 mm on either side (Not including the side caps), I have everything as close and tight as I can.

The Below photo you can see how much clearance is available at either end.



Let me know if you need the exact amount, ill grab a ruler and measure the distances to the caps.

PS: I ATTEMPTED SOME WHEELIES TODAY, CANNOT GET IT EVERY TIME AS IM TOO SCARED TO DUMP THE CLUTCH

Exact length would be nice. I have to add a 2nd perch and the two cant be tight against each other like that, they wont fit. I also haev to add something like



When I first started riding, for the first week or two I did not have a start and kill switch on the left side. I had to be in neutral only and no front brake. This was quite difficult on a hill where I stalled either the first or second night riding. I refuse to not have it now.

I also prefer that my gps be on the left side so I can press buttons while riding. I have done it where it is on the right but it is much harder for me to use there. Reaching over adjusts my balance which is not a good thing.

I cant use a stem mount for the gps because I am looking at getting a rear facing camera and the lcd goes there.



So I really need about 25mm or 1 inch longer bars. :)

The good thing with the woodcraft risers is you can put any length handlebar tube in it.

I think you will be in luck, I did guess 25mm in clearance.

Will give you the exact measurements when I get home :D

I think you misunderstand I need about 25mm longer than stock in addition to the extra space that it has.

Fit whatever length (width) handlebar tube you want to the Woodcraft Risers (clamp)

As for Woodcraft risers, choose your height , you probably need somewhere close to stock cbr for effortless (Neutral) steering-

1" riser = 1.5" lower than stock cbr (What Robbo is using, lowest you can use without race fairings that I'm aware of.)
2" riser = 0.5" lower than stock cbr
3" riser = 0.5" higher than stock
and so forth according to their measurements.

Woodcraft hopefully will pick up on this thread, or just email them.. its what they specialise in.

or just drill out the top mount and put normal bars on
Yes he could.. but this way he'll get adjustability to suit his specific needs. ... in every direction.
