How to Install Your Handlebars
HANDLEBAR INSTALLATION GUIDE
Make sure to consult your bike manual or riser specifications for detailed instructions on your motorcycle's make and model.
Lay an old towel over your fuel tank to avoid damage. Remove old handlebars, and let the hand controls hand in a position that will not be damaged.
Following removal of old handlebars, ensure to clean the threads on your riser clamps and bolts before reassembly. Inspect for any damage.
Apply loc tight or other thread compound to mounting bolts before re assembling.
Tighten riser bolts in an X-pattern until the riser clamps are tightened evenly. (e.g top left, bottom right, top right, bottom left.)
Use a torque wrench to tighten clamp bolts to the torque specified by the OEM riser manufacturer.
Use a feeler gauge to ensure that there is at least 0.5mm of clearance between the base and cap of the riser clamps. They will not clamp the handlebar properly if the cap is pressed hard against the base.
Check that electrical wires & control cables are routed appropriately, with enough slack at full turn. Use cables ties to secure any loose wires.
If you are unsure of how to use the tools required in the above instructions, please consult a motorcycle service professional.
LEGAL HEIGHT DISCLAIMER
Check your local laws regarding the maximum legal height of handlebars for your motorcycle. Handlebars not within legal limits are intended for show purposes only, and are not for use on public roads.
