handlebar converter block

I have a 95 sprint with the higher bars from a trophy and genmar risers. I am happy with the height but dont like the kick back angle (is that the sweep?),I prefer my bars angled upwards slightly at the back.Has anyone fitted the sprint engineering handlebar converter block for tubular bars and if so do you know whether renthal superbike medium bars fit or would I need low.I want the bars to be high as poss with standard cables etc and dont want to have to cut the fairing to allow for lock. cheers

I was thinking of the same solution for my 96 speed triple. I would need to get a Sprint or Daytona triple clamp as well. I would want fairly low bend bars, but would I have to get any new cables or would the stock ones do the job.

Legman, check your triple clamp. It may be drilled and tapped, with black plastic caps over the unused holes.

Cheers,

Have not done it with a Sprint nor a Trophy. That being said...

You like the height and width, just not the pull back? Go out and make a measurement of what space you have left at lock. Between the fairing and bar/master cyls. Your pull back measurement is taken from the centerline of your bars(perpendicular to them). measured at the tip of the bar. Now you have your range to work with.

Look up Flanders Handlebars. See what they have to offer. Lots of options to work with.

pullback(sweep), rise, width, mounting width...

S1loki, unfortunately I am in the UK so Flanders are no use to me but thanks for the info,also I dont know the exact positioning of the clamps on the adaptor, are you aware that the standard bars are individual fork yoke bolt on type,not tubular though i guess the measurement is the same.

Yes , on that they are individual mounts. In this case one would use the center line of the fork tubes to base the numbers from. Convert to a tubular one piece bar should not be overly difficult. That being said if the the top yoke is thick enuff to drill and install mx bar clamps.

If you can handle more rise. How about having a set of GenMar style spacers milled. Except make them bolt to the yoke. Then have the bars bolt to the spacers with the mount holes offset. Allowing you to decide on pull back # you like.

Just thinking outside the box.

The Flanders site is a good reference. It made it easier to "find" the bar I wanted and have it made.

Now these are spendy, but...
