    Hi All,
      New here and just trying to get a bit off info on handle bar width with bar ends removed .I have very limited space down the side  of house so at 940 mm width will not be able to fit bike past the side gate , however was thinking I might get it through with the bar ends removed , so if anyone knows the width that would be great
    Thanks
    Damien

    Yep that's what I have to do as well everytime I go out, I take the barends and the handgards off and flip the mirrors round.

    Little top time get some electrical tape and wrap it rond the end of the clutch and break leavers that way you dont scratch the ends up.
    After over thirty + years behind the bars, there's still lots to do and see.

    Hi Gazk
     
      Just wondering if you can confirm as above that it 810 mm with bar ends removed , Dealer is measuring around 900mm which is right at my limit.

    Thanks
    Dayo
