Now I’m fussy about a handlebar, our friends at Procycle in America luv em and have been selling these for years with great success, there so wrapped in these they order them by the truck load in one colour, we benefit from there massive buying power and price.
These Fly Areo GP Bars are a really good bend and height, of course if you add the Warp 9 or similar mounts or Rox Risers that will give you another inch or so again.
Commonly referred to as Tapered Bar or Fat Bar, these are 1 1/8″ and yes ALL handlebars are 7/8″ inch measurement at the grip end !
Most standard Japanese OEM trail bike bars are pretty ordinary so using the steel DR/DRZ bars as example these are considered too heavy, too low and way too much bend ( sweep ) aarrgghh dump them and put on a fat bar now !!!
Alloy oversize bars offer more durability and strength, eliminate the crossbar which opens up your dash area for more goodies and a cleaner open look, I wouldn’t use anything else.
Elsewhere a retail of $149.95 were doing these at a special price of $119.95, look no further my friends this is a winner.
NOTE – available in black only
NOTE – also look to our French high end Scar Bars, same demintions as the Fly Bar as to why we sourced them, listed under this same category ‘controls’
Dimensions in mm –
- OEM W=787, H=76, R=50, S=72 ( example of DR/DRZ standard steel OEM handlebars )
- Fly Bars W=802, H=114, R=80, S=54
NOTE – no you do not need to get longer cables made !! most reroute their cables to free them up giving additional length.
NOTE – DR/DRZ riders pays to add a new throttle tube at the same time of purchase, select your choice of grip and some grip wire, you’ll find them listed under the same category ‘controls’
NOTE – highly highly recommend adding the best US Symtec Heat Demon Heated Grips at time of purchase also, clearly listed under ‘lighting/electrical’
