On my mag wheel Bonnie I replaced the uncomfortable 7/8 inch stock bars with the stock bars from my 955i Speed Triple. Perfect fit, with a slight forward lean due to the speedy bars having less rise.

See you somewhere down a twisty road....

I just fitted cafe bars - the bar ends I had to drill out. Using a pro quality allen ratchet adapter they were in so tight there was no option - seems that permanent thread lock had been used.

It's an 07. I used the protaper universal 1 1/8" risers and clamps, but used the stock bonneville bolts to hold them in place. The bars are 1 1/8" pro taper carmichael bend. Since the controls ends are 7/8 and not 1" you'll need 1" to 7/8" sleeves that the harley guys use to run dirt bars on their bikes. Or you could source 7/8 controls from a scrambler or 09 and up standard bonnie... I absolutely love the look and feel of these bars, and am super happy with the setup.

handlebars Help

Hi
I have been looking to put a small custom twist on my 09 Triumph Bonneville. I have purchased some Halcyon 830 bar ends and I am looking for a set of handlebars that gives you a correct look for bar ends but stays true to Original styling. I like Norman Hyde low UK bars they have a 8" pullback. I also like Western Bars handlebars that have a 5" pullback. I could ramble on about this for hours basically I want original style that sets lower than stock to avoid the bar ends looking out of place. The pullback options are basically important to me due to I like comfortable cruising comport.

This presents a problem when trying to add bar end mirrors (i.e. crg mirrors) as all the billet adapters have a max of 19mm interior diameter for them to work. Any ideas?

If I cant get that to work I have been thinking of getting 7/8" bars. Does anyone know if you can put 7/8" on the 1" mount thats on the 03 Bonnie? Or do I have to get a new mount?
