What size is the 2008 stock oversize Magura bar in the middle?
I am getting a techmount for the handlebar.
Thanks.

The Techmount 1 1/8" is too large for Magura. Don't remember the exact bar size or Techmount inside diameter, but I tried it on for size a while back. Much too loose and does not clamp at all.

Techmount makes a 1". Maybe that will work?
Might be too small. The problem is that Techmounts are exact 1.125" or 1". But Magura is a few tenths of a mm under the larger Techmount size (probably an even mm size?).

You might get away with using the larger Techmount and shimming it with a strip of aluminium/copper sheet wrapped around the handlebar.

I tried a rubber strip on one of my old bikes and even though the rubber was pretty hard the clamp still rotated on it. Might need some really sticky rubber or some rubberglue to make it work.

Strip of metal sheet should clamp a bit tighter.
