87 Aspencade Handlebar retrofit

Post by ARCPrez »



Hey all,

I am looking at swapping out the bars on my wing.
I know they are the 1" to 7/8 tapered configuration.
I want a more "knuckle forward" position.
I struggle with the pull back on the stock bars.
I am thinking something like these.

Has anyone used something like these spacers to allow them to mount at the riser?

Easy to wind up with brake or clutch master cylinders into windshield edges, also worth looking at angles available for times you need to remove caps on reservoirs to check fluid levels … or to add, etc … without spillage?
