JC, your current bars looks sweet. I think I went to the correct LSL site but there was so much German I freaked out and bailed.... couldn't find nuttin' due to my lack of German skills.

over the last 42 years I've gone from bike to bike , lately on a v strom suzy, now thinking of going back to triumph, I've always had trouble getting the right bend on the bars, suzy like triumph tend to position the bar clamps so they need much more pull back , and often the bars end up angled so as to be a pain in the wrist, if I go back to triumph I'll get some bar backs or rox pivoting risers and low MX bars for adjustability . Work great on the strom , but the look may not be so good on triumph .

i know what you mean- i ended up using a company in the uk called motoevolution- they are part of jenks bolts too- really good service from them. they contacted lsl to find out what bars were on the 2010 tridays bonnie and got them out to me double quick- despite the christmas postal rush!

Picture of the Western Bars on my scrambler. I have yet to drill the bars for the switchgear locating lugs. The clutch cable is america, and I have re-routed the standard throttle cables........I've yet to check they're clear. Rob

Looks great Rob. Did yo have to get cable extensions? What kind of riding position do you get? I like the stock position so much that I would be afraid to go with anything else.

The cables for the switchgear were fine, no need for any kind of extension. It gives a very upright riding position.
