Being 5'3" I find the bars on my FTP are making my wrists ache. Would higher bars help and if so should I get those from the DS or are there more cost effective options.

Being 5'3" you don't want the DS ones, they are not only higher (are they??), but also wider. Which require long arms.

I think you're better off with adjustable bar clamps. I have them and I love them (and I'm 5'10" riding a DS).



See this topic.

Thanks for your responses.
My current situation is standard FTP bars.
Am a bit concerned that risers may impede my view of the speedo etc (from an earlier post).
Adjustable bar clamps.If possible please could you let me know which ones would fit straight on my FTP?
Also do you know how to get look up a topic (eg handlebars) on this forum?

Standard Icon bars - aren't they higher than the FTP? Where are you located I just took some standard bars off.

Thanks for that.
I am near Hastings in East Sussex.
Please can you let me know how wide the Icon bars are, are they black and how much you want for them?

Sadly I'm in Oz. Many folk remove these though so you should find some in the UK if you look hard enough.

I don't think they're wider than the FTP bars, just higher but don't quote me on that, I'm not near my kit to measure anything.

Point of note - FTP mounts are 1 inch and all others are smaller I believe.

Scratch that - I was thinking of the FT. Not sure about FTP.

The two sizes used are 28mm / 1"1/8 and 22mm / 7/8"
I believe Harley Dangerous uses 1" or at least they used to.

I stand corrected. Thought FT was 1". I was doing it wrong.
Anyways if FTP has 7/8, l reckon Renthals are a good option.
And Phil - we are talking about the diameter of the bars at the point where they mount on the triple tree (top fork mount)
