Handlebar differences

I have a stock 2005 DL1000 and the bars seems different than my 2005 DL650 that I sold. The 1k bars seem to create wrist fatigue wereas the wee bars did not. I have done a few searches and am more confused after reading. Any help appreciated. If I could find the height,width, and pull back I will just measure and see if these may be aftermarket.

Besides the adjustment of the bar (which I'm sure you considered), anything that changes the relationship of your body to the bar will affect comfort and fatigue. I'm thinking particularly of seating position and height. Maybe the seat is different?

handlebars

I just wondered if there are all the same since I never had any fatigue in the wrists on the wee.

It is because you didn't have to hold on so tight when you twist the throttle on a Wee.

I was suffering wrist pain as well on mine, I merely loosened the risers rotated the bars forward and tightened them back up...problem solved.... I do not know how long or short your arms may be, but you should never be afraid to adjust controls like this to suit your size...

That's good info to have. Sometimes, you can have too much of a good thing.
