I found these bars second hand at a local bike shop, loved the look and through they would suit the scrambler.

I'm really happy with the result. They just clear the instruments, there's plenty of room at full lock so your thumbs aren't jammed against the tank, and the riding position is perfect.

I re-mounted the throttle so it is rotated 180 degrees and the throttle cable is under the bars, and also rotated the top banjo bolt on the brakes. So the big loop is gone and it's visually much lower and more tidy.

Next step is to have them powder coated, as the chroming isn't that great and there is some pitting and rust.

Which colour do you think I should coat them, black or silver?

Finally all done with the stage of the ongoing project that is Princess Buttercup. Bars were powdercoated black, and I have replaced grips, levers and mirrors, and tidied up the cables.

I love the lower, meaner look, and the riding position is completely different. It feels much better through corners now, especially since I replaced front and rear suspension.

They're genuine fake rizoma grips from ebay. Smoother and less squishy than the stock grips, so you both have to hold on a little tighter and get a little more vibration through the bars. They're about the only thing I'm unhappy with, but simple enough to change to something else if they annoy me too much.
