Handlebars - 750/1100 the same?

PostAuthor: Stromfirth » Mon Aug 26, 2019 3:20 am

Just a quick query - the the original bars from a 1100 fit a 750?
We have a 750 trike and want to change the straight bars and have been offered ones off an 1100.

Basically..yes..they'll fit long as you have enough cable (clutch, brake line, electrical) to reach from your straight bars to the original pull backs bar. And if, whoever, hadn't changed anything else: ie: original bars (both) are 7/8".

Thank You! Off to try the "bendy" type - straight ones are a bit far away for short arms!

Another thing worth a thought, if the reach is the problem. Change out the dog bones (aka: bar clamps/risers). There's quite a variety out there.

For example on stock Virago risers:

But many other risers can be adapted. While pricey, person can also go for off-sets--> http://www.motorcyclelarry.com/index.ph ... cts_id=465 Always keeping in mind the lengths of control cables/brake lines/electrical.
