Hello All,

Who all is fitted with aftermarket bars here? What bars do you have that are compatible? Post some pictures if possible so we all know here...Do you have 1.25" center diameter bars or 1" with added 1/4" adapters? Im looking to change mine out (I'm 6'7") and need to lean forward more (crazy long arms), so I need minimal sweep and low bars..I'm installing the Ducabike adjustable rearsets and already have the "High seat. I bought 4 bars that are 1 1/8" at center however Im finding out that there are no adapters to fill in the gap of the 1 1/4" so I need to figure other alternatives! What is the most aggressive 1 1/4" OEM bar - the bars for the regular Diavel? Any knowledge how much sweep or rise?

Thanks in advance!

thanks XDS-72,

I heard that those 1260 bars fit perfect, Im just hoping to find a bar that is lower and less sweep (I believe those 1260 bars are 1" lower than regular XD bars but possibly the same sweep as regular XD bars?

Thanks, Joe

I have the opposite problem, so I plan to install my Aella bars ASAP to get me further back. I can share pics of my current bars, which I'm pretty sure are further forward than normal stock bars. They fit fine though, so no spacer needed. See other recent threads about the same 1 1/8 to 1 1/4 spacer. I posted pics there. PM me for a price for my old bars. I hope to have them available within the next 2 weeks.

Original bars available now. :)

Ohhjoemama - let me know if you're interested.
Hi CBH, thanks for letting me know..at this point I’m going to try fitting some 1 1/8” Pro Taper bars along with some custom shims I had made for $40..if this works than I’ll post so everyone knows there could be MANY more handlebar options..stay tuned.

I hope it works. Where did you have the shims made ? Polyurethane ? I want to get plastic shims too to curb vibration. I think thin bushings would fit into the stock risers. I'd bet $40 to find out.........

I’m thinking they should work fine..they were made from 1040 Aluminum. The thickness of the shims will make 1 1/8” bars fit with the 1 1/25” stock rider. I’ll post pics by tomorrow. Also I called a few local fabrication shops and got lucky with a pipe metal fabricator that works on car parts and roll cages.
