Bikemaster Daytona Handlebar
« on: June 10, 2010, 02:50:08 AM »
I read somewhere on this post that the Bikemaster Daytona bars where very nice, so I got a pair.  Great price, but the problem is they seems to nearly the same as the bars I currently have....

I was hoping to have a set of bars with a 1-2 inch rise over what I have now.

Bikemaster has about 6-8 different styles, but none that fit my need.  Does anyone have a suggestion about where to looks for more bar designs?

Emgo, Flanders and Renthal are a the top few other brands that come to mind.  One of them is bound to offer what you are looking for. You didn't say what bike you have, but FWIW, the 1G B12 bars are a little taller than the later B12/12.5 so if you have a newer version you may be able to trade or buy a set from a 1G owner.

I have a 98 1200s, is that a 1st gen Bandit?

Anyway, I just purchased a set of 1" risers to see if that give me what I'm looking for.

I found (somewhere) that the stock 2g bars are 2 inches of rise with 4 inches of pullback. The Renthal Street Medium and High are about the same pullback, with another 2-2.5" of rise. I'm planning to order those soon.

I'm not sure if the stock cables and brake lines will reach, so I guess I'll fine that out the hard way....

And here I am lowering the stock bars on my Mk1 1200 as I find the pull back weird, but most of all they are too tall.
