Alternate bars for '07 V-strom?

Discussion in 'Mechanical & Technical' started by Scooter Junkie, Aug 12, 2012.


  1. Hi there! I have a Wee strom (the 650) and the stock bars are killing my wrists!! :x They are raked backwards and make it very uncomfortable.

    Anyone know where I might find some high quality straight bars that would mount up?

  3. U have to know what to ask for first, bars have dimensions: diameter, height, drawback, center bar etc.

    If u like your present bars Except for the angle, I'd suggest a vice.
     


  4. Thanks Pete!

    The stock position of my bars made my wrists hurt too.
    Loosened up the risers and rotated the bar down a little. That cured the problem.
    It's something to try for free.

    Just be sure not to turn them down so much you trap your fingers or dent the tank at full lock.
