Handle Bars
« on: May 01, 2016, 06:28:25 PM »
Hi all,

An easy one I hope, does anyone know it there is a replacement set of handlebars for the S1000XR?

The reason is I've test ridden the bike "love it" the other half loves the seating and the bike "big plus there then" I have the money with a part ex for my current bike the only thing that's stopping the deal is the width of the bars they are 1000mm and the gap in-between our house and the next door neighbours house is only just 900mm and by only just it's more like 850mm and it's a 20 metre brick wall, there's not much I can do about it!

Any help would be much appreciated.

PS: or do any of you know the part number for the handlebars?

After over thirty years behind the bars, I’ve still not done it all or seen it all.

For the part number I'd suggest checking rainbow rotherham bmws site, they've a good parts website so shouldn't be hard to track down.

Other than that I'd suggest checking out rizoma or renthal bars.

If renthal look for the fatbars, if rizoma I'd look at the m005, m008 etc

All should give you the sweep angle but also overall width

Just cut them?

Tip: measure twice, cut once...

Would you be able to to put the bike on a bursig type stand and wheel it through with the bars turned so the bike is narrower?

The S1000R bars are narrower but have the same mounting and switch diameters. You could measure these up first before you buy after market.

The R bars don't have anywhere near the rise/pullback of the XR ones....you will probably need risers...

Got to say i'd go with some form of trolley dolly, turn the bars to lock position and wheel through, post a picture up of where you want to get though

You'll never see a motorbike parked outside a psychiatrists.

What I have come up with is I take off the bar-end weights and the handlebar guards the bike then just fits then refit once the bike is out it all takes a few minutes.

S1000XR won't handle as well in tight turns if you put on smaller width handlebars.

On the plus side, your bike would be a mare for the light fingered types to get away with  :008:
