  • TBR risers = LAME!!

    Man you crank those fookers down as tight as possible and they still move...

    Pull a really sweet wheelie today rode it a ways... Actually made it to the balance point I think.... come down a touch hard and the left fooker twist down angle....

    So got one relatively flat bar and one point 45 degrees down....

    So what do I do? Just bang the other down to about 45 degrees so at least they're even.....

    Got the LSL handlbar conversion kit today. Can't wait to get it installed...

      Well, at least I didn't spend the money on them. They came with the bike.

      Now the real question is MX style bar to replace or just a nice straight street bar...

      The conversion kit comes with a 'superbike' bar and it's too swept back... Just want something w/ very little backward sweep...

        Sorry to hear about it, but I was worried about that with those.. Too much articulation and not enough grip to keep them where they're supposed to be.
        I've got a huge penis, You've got a huge penis, even Tim over there, yup you guessed it, huge penis. Good, now that that's out of the way, let's go ride

            Exactly....

            Well, now I tested the theory for sure... Not enough grip...

                I have seen what they look like but if the bar is pivoting on its bracket could you drill a 4 or 5 mm hole in each piece bout 3 mm deep and get a metal slug (maybe cut one off the end of an old clutch cable) and use it as a key to lock it in place

                    My concern is highlighted. They aren't keyed at all, so you've got one pinch bolt holding the thing in place. If it was keyed (like the grooves on the Shift shaft comming out of the motor) I wouldn't worry at all, but I think this design is dangerous.

                        That would definitely help, but I was replacing them anyway...

                        Didn't like them much at all....

                          That's exactly where it rotated too....

                            Wouldn't wanna trust bars like that.....
                            proper machined up risers are available from several mail order shops over here for around 30 ($45US), and all you have to do is drill 4 8mm holes in the top yoke and bolt'em on.
                            I'm a fat git, so got 'em welded on for 10 by a local guy.
                            Sorry about the crap photo, but I can't be assed to go and take any others at this time of night...........
