Handlebar Questions - 7/8" Aluminums
I would like to upgrade to reinforced aluminum handlebars on my DL650. I have the stock steel bars right now, and I am just tired of how flexy they are. Everything else on my front end is very stout, very tight, and really nice.....'cept these damn stock steel bars. So I got a couple of questions:
1. What bend is close, or as close as I can get, to the stock bend? I like the reach, pullback, height, etc. of the stock bars, so I am not really looking to change that. I don't want some real wide bar, or some other bend....as close to stock as I can get.
2. With an aftermarket aluminum handlebar (such as Renthals, Pro Tapers, etc.) can I still use the OEM original bar end weights, Suzuki hand guards, and all the other OEM stuff? I really like the handguard setup that I have now, which requires the OEM bar end weights.
3. Are there any concerns that I haven't covered, that I should consider, before making the change?
Thanks for any help or comments.
