How are handle bar vibrations compared to your prior setup with the stock bars?  Thanks for the link as well!

they are a little better than the stock set-up. While IO still had the OEM mirrors I could run about 10mph faster with the replacement bars before the mirrors became useless.

I was never bothered by the stock bar vibes, but when my bike fell over suddenly and I had to replace the bar I swapped for a carbon fiber bar. I think it reduced the vibes a touch, but as I say, Iím not that sensitive to those things anyway.

I used a Rizoma bar on my 14, I put threaded inserts into the end of the bars and use RhinoMoto bar-ends with CRG arrow mirrors. there is no issue with the quality of the aftermarket bars.

used these in the ends(may have been M12 or M10 internal thread) - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002KLT1QQ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&th=1

S1000R - General Chat / Question for those who have aftermarket handlebars
« Last post by Vahnatai on Yesterday at 05:46:57 PM »
OH GOD! It's another one of those terricle, never-ending vibration posts!  Ugh!

But in all seriousness, a few weeks ago I was involved in a side swiping accident and need to replace my handle bar.  I'd been tossing around the idea of a spacer previously and combined with the high cost of the factory bar am considering an aftermarket set of bars (Rizoma, AC Schnizter, etc) that produce a less aggressive riding position.  But I do have a few concerns:  That all aftermarket bars are hollow, they weigh less than the stock one, and there really aren't any bar end weights with the same type of heft that we normally see with S1000R fitment weights.  Has vibration been a problem with aftermarket bars with the the different type of construction and weights involved?  I'm not particularly savvy on filling a set of handle bars.

I'm coming from stock bars with Evotech bar ends.

Welcome to the forum ping.   :401:

If I were in the market for a new SR, this would be the colour I'd choose. A nice looking bike that.  :169:

Keep us all informed how you get on with it.

Excuse my ignorance, but what are the condition of your roads in Brunei?

You guys got it right. What a beast. I love mine. Also a 2018. That little guy can take you to the edge in just a few seconds. I have a Hepco Becker rack I put on for over night trips and all is well. Also have a MRA double bubble wind screen so I won't get blown off at speed when passing cars etc..

Maintenance, Servicing, and Mechanical / Re: Clutch Cable Recommendation?
« Last post by rogracer on October 18, 2021, 03:28:59 PM »
I'm going from memory here, but IIRC, there was a tolerance and/or machining issue with some of the OEM clutch levers that caused chaffing.  The cable was not at fault...if the lever had a chaffing issue, the cable wouldn't last long...otherwise it was fine. It is easy to see if there is a problem with your lever, so you may want to take a closer look.
