Raised Handlebars advice
« on: 19 June 2019, 01:01:39 PM »
Hi all, i am new to the forum, i have just passed my mod2 and after a lot of reading decided to purchase a 1999 Fazer 600 as my first big bike. i done most of my training on a XJ600 Diversion.


The Fazer i have purchased is in brilliant condition and running order however the previous owner replaced the handlebars with Renthal 758 Ultra lows.


I much prefer a more upright riding position and would like to ask what the best remedy for this would be ? i have seen some Rental 756 highs which i can get hold of or i was thinking of adding some raisers to my current setup, or maybe something else? any advice welcome, thanks.

The factory bars give an upright position
I printed out DUDE'S instructions...even on paper they are pretty confusing...Has he been INGESTING some MIND ALTERING substance......???

Thanks,  I have got a hold of some renthal 756 bars which I'm going to fit and see how it goes,  hopefully  won't have to get longer cables.

Best to avoid longer cables. You'd be opening up a can of worms. As said, standard bars are moderately upright. More so than 758s, and also not so wide. Should be plenty of used examples on ebay and around.

Cheers for that Info,  if I can get away with the 756 without messing with cables then sorted  if not like you said I'll pick up some standard bars from eBay.
