Different handlebars
on: December 21, 2018, 11:36:00 AM
I have a set of black 28mm bars from a Kawasaki Versys which have a slightly different rake on them. They are the same width and diameter and might just try them for a giggle as I think black bars will look nice. I know I need to open the end thread for my evotech weights and drill new locating holes for the switches, but wondered whether all the fittings and switches / throttle tube  /  grips are all screwed or bolted on or is anything glued down / non removable ? - I don't want to damage any OEM stuff in case I don't like it and want to revert back.

Nothing is glued down. both sides have a small screw going through the bars to secure the switches, The left side is easy to remove, the screw is under the grip rubber, just peel it back a bit. The right side is a little more involved. you will need a T9(or T8) driver. You need to remove the switch cover, inside there is the screw. I will try to upload some photos a little later.
