Hi all,

Just wondering if these are stock bars. I thought stock were shiny silver. Any insight as to what these are If not stock?

Look like low Renthals - 14mm bore as opposed to 17mm bore. OEM are chrome and are a higher/narrower profile and are steel, whereas the Rental are aluminum.

How much lower are the ultra lows? These bars are just too high at the moment.

Handlebar Dimensions - (A) = Width, (B) = Height, (C) = Rise, (D) = Width, (E) = Sweep
Superbike Ultra Low - (A) 733mm, (B) 75mm, (C) 42mm, (D) 110mm. (E) 94mm
Superbike Low - (A) 737mm, (B) 105mm, (C) 63mm, (D) 105mm, (E) 122mm
Superbike Med - (A) 732mm, (B) 117mm, (C) 78mm, (D) 105mm, (E) 105mm
Superbike High - (A) 716mm, (B) 119mm, (C) 96mm, (D) 105mm, (E) 103mm

For what it's worth - I like the High and cut off about 1" each end.

Thanks. I'll give them a go. Nothing lost as they aren't extortionate

Remember a couple things here.

1) The ID is 14mm and therefore the standard weights will NOT fit. You will need bar ends that fit 14mm (Bike Tek).
2) When you drill your holes and as a result of not having the standard weights and bar ends, you need to drill these holes 1/4" further towards the center of the handlebars. For instance the distance from the outside end of the throttle (right) side is exactly 5". So you"ll drill 5-1/4", likewise the left hole is exactly 4-1/2" and thus you'll drill 4-3/4". This is based on the bar end not having a shoulder (I think termed as "caps").

Does this make sense and why?

Hole size 4.9mm

I'm going to grab some matching bar ends from jesters.

Thanks for the tip. I'll have to find a 4.9mm drill bit.

Excellent comparison. I will definitely pick up some ultra lows. Also quite temped with that yellow paint... 8o

Could you please explain why you need to drill the holes further in?
From my understanding of what you've said, its because the bar ends kinda clamp the grip assembly (? :/) and the 14mm bar ends won't do that so the whole grip/housing assembly will have to be further for the bar ends to sit flush and look right? :/

I used the flush bar ends (BikeTek) and they fit flush to the end of the bars. The Renthals I have are 14mm id. You could pull the bar end off the end of the handlebars by 1/4", or get 14mm weights and have them protrude by the 1/4". Does that makes sense?

Does any of you guys know if I can get a fatbar (28.6 mm) handlebar with the same dimensions as stock? Does anyone know where I can see what dimensions the stock handlebar has?

Best regards Jesper
