Next on my list of things to sort are my rather rusty handlebars, i guess this is common or could it be that as i am going through the GRiSO im beginning to think it hasn't been very well loved and cherished? i should really track down the former owners and give them a good tut and wag of the finger. I have googled the hell out of this subject and decided to order some Renthal Fatbar in Black and some bar end mirrors, Lot's of measuring and pretending im holding the new bars where i think they might be when fitted has given me a few sleepless nights Wink hopefully this wont be a massive disaster. i will post the results..

I just installed some renthal low bars on my GRiSO - there is less sweep which makes you feel like your arms/hands are wider but its not by much, and you lean forward a little more due to being approx 1 inch lower. I quite like it.. you can play with the setup by rotating in the clamps so easy to get it feeling good...

I have some Rizomas which lowered me a bit.

I have ape arms and a long torso. I have been kicking around trying clubman's or clip ons.

Anyone have luck with those?

Not sure about clip ons, but i would be interested to hear if you have any success with lower bars.

Is there a lug in the handlebar switchgear that prevents them from rotatingg? I'd like to just that in order to be able to rotate the brake and clutch levers down. At present the levers hit the switchgear when rotated down.

Not for earthing it is just to locate the switch housings.
It can be pulled out of the switch housing with pliers and you just wrap some tape around the bars when relocating the switches and they tighten up firmly.
I have Rizoma bars that are lower and narrower but I am a shortarse.
You need to drill and tap a thread in the end of the bars to mount the stock bar ends.

Sorry for the huge delay in reporting how the new bar fitting went, family/work issues getting in the way as usual Very Happy  All done and really happy how it went. They are really comfortable about the same height and only about 20mm more sweep back. They are 800mm wide so only 10mm per side narrower which with the bar end mirrors fitted are about the same. The thing i noticed the most was the lack of pins and needles in my hands until about an hour of constant riding. This is the real bonus on top of everything as i used to suffer this after 15 mins before the change.. instillation was a bit of tape , a punch and a 4mm and a 5mm drill bit.. allen keys and a screw driver.href="http://s87.photobucket.com/user/griso69/media/20160604_155203_zpsk0ynruxq.jpg.html" target="_blank">[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][/url][url=[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/url]
