I've never been fully happy with the position of either the stock or rizoma bars on the GRiSO...

Today, rummaging in my mates old bucket of odd clips-ons and handlebars, I came upon a perfectly serviceable set of Jota adjustable handlebars. good heavy unit, nicely made, so I'm guessing they have provenance.

20 quid (and a thank you very much) later they are on my bike.

-The position is absolutely perfect!!!

-unfortunately, the big plastic brembo reservoirs don't fit with the bars unless I flip the bars around.

I'm weighing up the cost of following Beetles path and fitting radials with remote reservoirs... but the $$$ is weighing rather heavy in that equation...

so, any cheaper options out there that anyone's tried? I'm quite happy with my front brake feel and clutch pull so don't feel the need to upgrade... Just need something that fits

thanks

Like the looks and comfort possibilities with adjustments. Nice

I have a set of those bars, in chrome. I got them in a box of parts for a CBX. I've never put them on anything.....yet.

I've tried eleventy different sets of bars. I could never get it quite right. The GPZ900R had the most comfortable bar position I've ever used, so I duplicated it with the Jota style bars. Couldn't be happier.


cheers

I'm not sure I can justify the splurge for radials when all I'm looking for is more room on the bars...

Can anyone tell me what size/model number the stock brembo units are?

will try and take some pics tomorrow,

but happy to report that the jota bars are absolutely amazing. Different bike. So much pleasure to be had from that beautiful torquey mill and the maxton suspension, epsecially now that I'm in the right riding position, ie. natural wrist angle, body just forward and sporty enough.

In other news, obviously I caved and the radial MCs are on their way in the post as we speak!

forza guzzi!!
