Hi fellow Scramblers,

Has any one got any experience with different bars? I find the stock high riser bars a bit too high and fancied something a bit lower. Ive seen Ducati do sell a OEM lower version bar for a small fortune. Does anyone have any experience of the Renthal 7/8" aftermarket bar and does this require a new mount?

Or does anyone knows of someone who wants to sell their flat bars of a Scrambler Italia Independent?

I'm open to any other suggestions too.

Cheers,

Jimmy

Be careful with 7/8 Renthal motocross bars. I tried them and I did get them to work but only just. The problem is that the straight part where the controls fit is a wee bit too short and the brake and clutch levers have to tighten just where the bend begins. You'll notice on the Scrambler the part that clamps the bars onto the risers is quite short between the bends while Renthals or even most others are quite long meaning there is less straight part at the outer ends.

I've got the Ducati OEM versions on mine.....much prefer both the look and the riding position. Worth every penny, not really that expensive and no hassle to fit.

Thanks Skmark, I think you've made up my mind for me. Think I'll go for the Ducati part. Did you have to buy a new bracket with the new bars?

I love the look of your bike, the bars and tail tidy have given it such a clean finish. I plan on doing the same to mine.

Hi,
thanks for the compliments......I've added bar end mirrors now too.

Not 100% sure about whether a bracket is needed as I was lucky enough that the 1st owner spec'd the FT bars from new just as I would have done. I do however, have the original invoice which just mentions the price for the bars (same as the Scrambler website) and nothing else.

The tail tidy is the R&G one as I think the number plate light is much neater than most of the other ones.

Tail Tidy for Ducati Scramber SIXTY2 ( 62 / Sixty Two) '16- models

Looking forward to seeing your pics.

Will post some before and after pics. The R&G tail tidy has arrived I've just not got round to fitting it. Also got some bar end mirrors from amazon.

Just the bars to go.

I believe it is
Hhhmmmm.....not so sure that it is. If you go to the configurator on the Scrambler website, the FT bars are listed as a straight 'accessory' for the Sixty2 whereas if you change to the Icon they are not listed as an option. One area where we 'win' I suggest.

Best check with your nearest dealer.

If it's the same gig as the 800s, a new bracket is required.
It is the same gig as the Icon, as I just discovered, so the Sixty2 needs a new bottom and top plate to hold the Full Throttle handlebars. I've installed this, and it's all worked really well. Definitely worth it, even at AU$220 for the handlebar + mounting plates kit. The only issue I had was the holes pre-drilled for the throttle assembly and power switch were off, causing the bar end plug to stop the throttle snapping back after you release it. I had to drill new holes for these. But it's all good now.

Jumping in late to the party as I just bought a Sixty2 and desperately want to replace the handlebars, hoping someone is still around to answer. Do you remember what bracket you bought in the end? I bought some Rizoma bars not realising they wouldn't fit, am now looking at the Rizoma riser but I really don't like the gauge relocation. I was thinking of just selling the Rizoma bars and going for some Aella, but I can't find any local dealers who sell them where I can go in and try first. They come in low and high versions, so kinda of want to see each first to get a feel.

In the end I went with the Ducati catalogue low riser bars. They come with bracket needed and the bars come with the home pre drilled to fit the starter button housing. As far as I understand with the Rizoma bars they should sit the standard clamp but the dash isn't as easy to see. Dead easy to fit.

Did you install the Ducati low riser bars yourself? Was it difficult?

Yes, It was very simple. I had to borrow a torque wrench to torque the bolt to the manufactures specifications but other than that you don't need any specific tool. The hardest part was getting the electric plug off the back of the dial. Other than that it was plain sailing. Took 45mins give or take. Would defiantly recommend using locktite too.

thanks. Where did you get the torque specifications?

Thanks for the response after so many years! I'll look into the cost of the Ducati bars.
