hi bar conversion

If anyone's thinking of doing it here's an easy option that doesn't need any fairing cutting and gives full lock to lock movement (an MOT fail in UK if it doesn't go to the lock stops)
955 speed triple top yoke (direct fit). Renthal high road bars rotated backwards, if you get the adjustment perfect you get full lock both ways without touching the fairing or the tank. Speed triple clutch cable (off ebay) comes across between the yoke and the tank and over the headstock, throttle cables go through gap in frame tubes just behind the headstock. Rotate the twistgrip assembly so the cables exit under the bar. This is a bit tight, I might try a set of 955 Tiger throttle cables next.
Brake pipes have to be extended, as does the wiring to the left bar switchgear. Simple!!

Which year model did you do this with ? ie pre 2002 or after, I would presume after 2002. and how far back did you have to rotate the Renthal high road bars ? Post some pictures so we can have a look at the finished job.

Cheers NJC

Is an 02 DSSA model, will read the thread on posting pics and give it a go. Has made it a really comfy riding position, bit more upright and closer than a S3 because they use lower bars and not rotated backwards. Another bonus is the c of g is further back so the front wheel lifts more easily off crests.

Will get some pics when I actually get home from work in the daylight and get a chance to take some.
Why would I do this, because I want a bike I can do track days on and razz round far too quickly with my mates but with a badly worn spine I can't ride a sports bike. The solution, a sports bike (with the low weight, quality suspension and handling and power that goes with it) but with high bars to allow me to sit on it for hours a t a time without being crippled. As for the front lifting, why wouldn't you, be rude not to take advantage of this ability.
