Hi guys,

For those who, like me, find that the handlebar is way too high and compromises the bike aesthetics, here is a list of compatible handlebars so far (28,6mm in clamping range / 22,2mm at bar ends) :

LSL x01 90€ http://www.lsl.eu/php/index.php#produktgruppeliste.php?pgkuerzel=LenkerFatBar
Barracuda 77€ http://www.barracudamoto.es/manillares-para-moto-diametro-variable-28-22mm.html
Gilles unknown http://www.gillestooling.com/cms/news

I'll probably go for the Barracuda.

Do you know any other manufacturers?

Vsss!

Do you know if the handlebars will fit directly or do we need to put also de risers?

I Wonder if the speedometer needs to be place changed or can be mounted in the new handlebar.

My bike has LSL bars, they go straight on without the need for risers - but if you want to pull the angle of the bars towards you (i.e. lower) then they would contact the tank on turning.

Piers,

When installing the LSL bar, how did you filed down the bumps of the switch and indicator bits. Did you use a cant file or something like that?

A bit late but a Dremel should do if you want to get rid of them.

I taped the bar ends, then firmly screwed the switches into position. That leaves visible marks from the bumps in the masking tape where then holes can be drilled carefully (two 5mm + one 4mm). Checking everything twice before drilling is highly recommented.

Btw: Unlike LSL says in their XSR700-Roadster description, the General Operating Permit (ABE) for the X01 Superbike Handlebar doesn't list the XSR700, yet. That means it has yet to be entered into the vehicle documents, at least for germany.

For anyone wanting a comparison of lsl fatbars against the stock bars, i took this before/after pic.
The new bars feel great, and the new riding position feels just right.

I ordered Anthracite pearl expecting grey, but they are definitely more brown....in fact i think they're the same as Piers 'Pinion' bike although he said he'd ordered black pearl....?? either way i like them:grin2:

They look great. Definitely one of the first mods I'm going to make.

Did you drill holes or just file down the little bumps on the back of the controls?

I used a carbide burr in a pistol drill to remove them, but a file would do the same job.

I sat on a XSR700 and I'd prefer the handlebar to be a bit higher and a bit towards me. How does the LSL handlebar fare? Is it lower or higher than the stock? Will I need risers? alternatively which renthal or pro taper will do the job without the need of risers?
thank you.

Hi Redrum,

I think it would look awesome. The XSR900 handlebar is much lower than the original XSR700, which I don't like at all as you can see...

I'll have it fitted by my dealer on my first service, 600km to go, I'll post pics then.

Hi all, any more feedback / pictures with the LSL or Barracuda or Gilles Tooling low handlebars. I love the look on the super 7 and some other XSR but am wondering about the riding position as I quite like to stock one, i.e. quite vertical. thanks
