Hi all
Wonder if anyone can give any advice/thoughts?
I love my scrambler icon but started with a numb bum which seemed to create a pain in my left shoulder. Various seat mods onwards and I adore my mustang seat (seriously guys I tracked it across America longing it to arrive and it did today- butt bliss with no extra height- I''m 5'3"). However I hoped it would instantly transform the left shoulder pain and 30 mile test ride today left me in no illusion that's not the case! I've changed levers and adjusted bars but am assuming my next (last?) option is to replace the stock icon bars? Anyone agree/disagree/ have any thoughts??

Did you adjust bars up or down?

WIth your height (spine length), the stock bars may simply be uncomfortably high.

I'd give lower bars a shot (Protaper Adventure for instance, or maybe even lower)

Try not to pull too hard on the bars when popping wheelies ! It gives the shoulders hell,,,,,,,,,

The pain in your shoulder may not be caused by the bars/seat but could be due an underlying problem that the riding position is making you aware of.

Thanks all (especially for the wheelie grin). I'll have a good look. I've had shoulder checked with chiropractor and never had a problem with any other bike so I'm thinking that's not the problem (but ruling nothing out!)

Check this video, I believe this bike has the Protaper Adventure bars


I stand corrected, they are Eastons

btw, if you are choosing oversized bars (1 1/8th") you may want to check if they fit the stock bar clamps before you buy

Thanks all- I went for the renthal ultra lows in the end. Short ride so far but seems to have done the trick!
