You probably cannot find a better way both to make your bike unique and to get the best fit than to replace the stock handlebars on your bike. No matter if it's low, wide, short or tall, there's a handlebar that suits your needs. Currently there are a myriad of handlebars from which to choose. In order to properly select the handlebars that work best, you need to know exactly what you are shopping for and what options are available.
First, research the market to find out what handlebars are available, make yourself familiar with the different features, styles and costs. Second, examine your personal requirements in handlebars.
Handlebars are much more than just a steering apparatus, they are also a large factor in the comfortable feel of the bike. Handlebars are also an important part of the overall image that you and your bike will exude. You will need to choose a set of handlebars that fits the impression you want to put across on your machine.
The first part of handlebar research is to investigate all that is available in the way of handlebars. The range of options can seem daunting, but you can make a good start by familiarizing yourself with the following important features:
If you have previously used a particular set of handlebars, decide what was right or wrong about them. You may be looking for a set exactly like it, hoping to upgrade, or even trying to avoid any particular features that you found to be inconvenient. Other factors such as the thickness of the grips or the width of the handlebars should be considered. Make sure you know exactly what you need and don't settle for less, otherwise you could find yourself in pain during your ride.
It's possible to replace the handlebars without changing anything else on your bike. If you want to avoid additional modifications (and additional costs), this is probably the best option. If you find the handlebars that you prefer, you might need to do some work on them to get them to fit properly. You may need to adjust the riser to allow greater comfort and control. When you aren't comfortable, you aren't completely focused on your riding and that can lead to safety issues or in the worst case scenario accidents, or at the very least, give an unsatifactory riding experience. Without control, you won't have much fun or get very far. Safety is very important on motorcycles. Maximizing your safety should start with confident control.
