I'm getting ready to pull trigger on 1 1/8 chub bars. The adapter says it raises bars by 3/4". My question is, can I install the ATV high bar, or will I have to go with CR bend to accommodate cable length. ATV has 4 3/4 height plus 3/4 for adapter. The CR bend is 1" shorter. I already have 1" risers with stock bars. That's as far as I can go without lengthening cables.

Looks like the stock bars are the same height of rise...4 3/4. So I'm hoping I can use the ATV high bar. I was hoping someone might have already done it, so I don't make an ordering mistake.

How does that work with all of the controls that are made for 7/8" bars? Do you have to reinvent everything to make that work?

So I received my new bars today. Really like them. Look great and feel more substantial. Less vibration and an improved feel. 1 1/8 aluminum is so much nicer than 7/8" steel stockers. Best 70 bucks I've spent on the bike so far.

Now I'm thinking of getting the Tusk Dflex handguards and ditching the wind deflector stockers. So Cheesy.

Hi did you get the ATV bars? are they higher and have more of a pull back than the stockers? thanks for the update.

Yes I did. They are perfect. Very similar to stockers. I added the adapter which raised them an additional inch. Just pulled the trigger on the hand guards with additionally add in spoilers for extra wind protection in the cold weather. I can remove them in the summer.

Had to go by Ace hardware and pick up some smaller bolts. The ones supplied were too long. They bottomed out before I could snug bar adapters.

Good report and I'm sure they are a big improvement. I just may have to do that on my Gen I DL1000. Too bad I just ordered tires from Rocky Mountain 2 days ago. Would have liked to add these for free freight.
