Will these bars fit my bike?

We are consistently working to provide as much information as possible regarding fitment. Please use our fitment table to check which bar type will suit your bike. This will tell you which diameter is needed and which wiring option to select.
To fully measure your handlebars for fitment, you will need to check 4 things:

1. Handlebar Diameter
Your handlebars will likely be either 7/8" (22mm), 1" (25mm) or 1-1/4" (32mm) in diameter. This is best check using a set of calipers, but can also be checked by sliding off your throttle-side grip and measuring the end with a ruler or tape measure.

2. Clamping Area
This is the distance from outside-to-outside edge of your riser clamps, and tells how much flat area is needed at the base of the handlebar to clamp onto your bike. It is easily measured with a ruler or tape measure. Please note that some models have a wide clamping area, such as Harley Springer models, and the Suzuki M190, M90 and M50.

3. Wiring/Fitment Type
This is the presence of any special fittings or features for your handlebars such as Dimples, Slots or TBW notches. See below for more info.

4. Cable Length
If installing taller bars than standard, you will need to check whether your standard cables and wires will reach the new handlebars. As a general rule of thumb, 90% bikes will fit 10" Ape Hangers using stock cables, and 50% of bikes will fit 12" Ape Hangers. 14" or 16" bars will require an extended cable kit.
If you are unsure or require further information please get in touch via the contact us page and we’ll assist you with any questions.

How do I check Cable Length?

To determine what length cables are needed for our bars, please check the dimension drawings located on each product page. You will find the required cable length (from riser to grip) at the bottom right of the image. Please note that this is a straight-line distance, so you will need to allow an extra 1-2 inches of slack to run cables along or inside the bar. If your current cable length is less than the length specified on the product page, you will require a cable extension for the fitment of your new bars. Further information may also be available in the workshop manual for your specific bike.

What does "Wiring Option" mean? Plain, Dimpled, Slotted + TBW what do I need?

Plain:
Plain refers to a 1" handlebar with no additional features. It is just a plain tube with no dimples or slots cut into it.
This type of handlebar is suitable for most Metric make of bikes including Yamaha, Suzuki, Honda, Kawasaki & Triumph. They are also used on vintage Harley-Davidson models including Shovelhead, Panhead and Ironhead.
In all cases, the electrical wires run externally and can be fixed in place using cable ties.

Dimpled:
Most Harley-Davidson models (post-1982) which use 1" handlebars and a cable-operated throttle require the 'Dimpled' option.
The Dimple is an indentation which allows the electrical wires to exit from your handlebar switch, pass underneath the clutch/brake mounts, and then run externally along the handlebar.
The wires can be fixed in place using small cable ties.


Dimpled + Slotted + TBW:
There are 2 reasons why you may want to use this wiring option:
1. Your bike uses Harley-Davidson Throttle By Wire (TBW).
2. You would like to run Internal Wiring (All Makes).

This is a very versatile handlebar which gives you a wide range of options for wiring.

In the case of a TBW Harley-Davidson, the dimples and slots allow you to run your electrical wires either internally (using the slots) or externally (using the dimples). The bottom slot is always required for your throttle-sensor wire to exit the handlebar.

For any other Make/Model (including non-TBW Harley) you can use this handlebar type to run your electrical wires internally using the Slots. You can simply ignore the TBW notches and the dimples, and the handlebar will function as normal. The TBW notches will be hidden under your throttle grip, and the only approx 1cm of the dimple will be visible on the under-side of your handlebar.

To confirm which bar type you need please refer to the fitment table here.

Can I use a TBW handlebar?

If your bike has a cable-operated throttle, you can still use a handlebar which has the TBW option. A TBW handlebar is 12mm shorter on the throttle-side grip, and has notches cut into the tube end. Just slide the throttle grip onto the handlebar as normal, but stop 12mm before the grip bottoms are all the way on. This will not affect safety or performance.

What if I want Internal Wiring?

If you would like your cables to run internally through your handlebars, for 1" bars select the "Dimpled + Slotted +TBW" option. 1-1/4" handlebars come standard with internal wiring slots. The bar you purchase will come with three oval shaped slots, one at the base of the bar and one at each grip. When installing the new handlebar, insert your cables through the handle grip slot, pushing them through until you are able to retrieve the wire through the bottom slot. It can help to thread a thin piece of string or wire through the handlebar first, then use it to pull your electrical wires through.

Can I use my heated grips?

Yes you will be able use heated grips with BarCraft Handlebars.
For Harley Davidson, you'll need to select the "Dimpled + Slotted + TBW" option when purchasing. This will enable you to run the required wiring inside the handlebars.
For most metric bikes, heated grips can be used with the standard handlebars and external wiring.
