bar-ends

I've got a extra set of bar-ends, they're from a dl1000. I also have a set on my dl650. I just discovered the two on my bike are not the same diameter, though close. one is 32mm(1 1/4") , ... the other 36mm (1 7/16").

I have no idea which size is the OEM set for the dl650. Could someone please measure theirs... best to get actual sizes measured on each dl model.

Thanks a lot, dave

Cum'on guys...the difference is obvious enough by just holding a ruler up to them. Post your bike model and the size.

They're either: 1 1/4"....... or 1 1/2"

Thanks a bunch, dave

Ok, I'll play.

DL650 and my bar ends are 1.25" diameter.

Thank you, thank you.

Something posted just today has a photo of the 650 bar-end assy. too

How convienient. So, unless I'm wrong the 650 has somewhat smaller end weights than the 1000.

I guess that might make sense. Dunno.

Funny you mention that. I bought a Kaoko throttle lock that replaces the right bar end. On ordering it spceified fitting either a DL650 or 1000. The lock is larger diameter than the 650 bar end. Don't know if it would match a 1000 or not.
