    2021 S1000XR - Seat new handlebar options

    Hey All,

    I'm really liking my gen 2 XR, but like most people, I want to change the seat, and I would also like to swap out the handlebars.  I hear the feedback on the Sargent Revoluton seat is good?  No bucket shape or pushing you into the tank?  The stock handlebars are too narrow and swept in for my liking.  I rode my buddies gen 1 XR, and the seat and handlebars were good.  I am considering swapping out my handlebars for the gen 1.  My favortie handlebars are the 2020 Ducati Hypermotard SP's that I rode for 250 miles.  Theyre 1 1/8 as well, I may just buy those, I'm not sure if there would be any clearance issues/how low they would be though.

    Gen-1 handlebars don't fit the Gen-2...mounting setup is different and the bar diameter is also different.

    Thanks!  I know the Hypermotard SP bars are also 1 1/8 inch, I'll swing by a chop and measure the height to see if there will be clearance issues.
