Can someone with a 2018 1000XT with the larger tappered bars measure the diameter. My brother needs to order a set of risers and Twisted Throttle keeps telling him 7/8" which I know is wrong. I was looking at his bike this weekend and noticed it has a fat bar and I know it is not 7/8". Pretty sure it is 1 1/8" but can someone confirm this.

Measure it at the clamps.

All bars are the same OD at the ends.

Let’s just say he may not be that equipment savvy and leave it at that. Thought maybe some who had and a little more tool savvy could measure it.

Not need anymore. It was confirmed to be 1 1/8”. And the bar is tapered so the ends are not the same.

The ends of the bars are 7/8" for both fat bars and regular bars. Have to be for the controls to fit.

Fat bars have thicker walls than 7/8" bars.
