I have ultra lows and agree about the sweep. Glad you found an improvement but they look a little too trailbike for me so I'll put up with it.

Thanks for sharing. I have the Renthal Ultra Low as well.. But I decided to upgrade my brakeset to Brembo RCS15 and TWM Clutch Lever to get the minor adjustment I was looking for for my hands. The OEM master cylinder and brake line was really a problem touching the Speedo. I bought the Rizoma Riser Kit with Speedo Center Relocator but have yet to install it.

I tried Full Throttle bars on mine didn't like them( @33 ins too wide) so now it's wearing bars from an 821 Monster @33 ins span they are a perfect fit for my narrow shoulders :hello2:

The Renthal ultra lows I first installed were a huge improvement over stock Icon bars for me. I liked the extra reach and lower position. While happy with the bars, as I rode them for a few weeks I was wishing they had just a little less sweep. Pic of Rental ultra low bars. View attachment 5347

I decided to get a set of Pro Taper 7/8 Carmichael bend bars. They are very similar in all dimensions except for less sweep or pullback. I am very happy with the outcome. They are just right for me and even fit the controls better giving more room for the clutch cable and clearance for the banjo bolt near the instruments. The brake hose and throttle cable look to be a hindrance, but when I am sitting on the bike they do not cover the speedo at all.

Nice bars, but am really impressed with your tank grip pads - details please.

What part #/ID for the RCS 15 you bought?
That's next on my "to do" list once I'm able to harvest more Ducati Dollar's

First thing I changed on my bike was the bars. I also started with the Ultra lows from Renthal but had the same problem, I found them to have too much sweep. I bought the Rizoma fat bar conversion and speedo relocate and went with a set of black free ride bars. It made it made it feel more like a dirt bike which I didn't mind so much but it ruined the look a bit too. Black bars with black risers was over-kill and I missed the contrast. I had a set of silver KTM super duke bars in my shed from a past bike and thought I'd try them. Turns out the sweep was perfect, they look great and go brilliantly with the Rizoma kit so I've settled on these now.

Diavel bars sprayed black. Cables all modified or replaced to get rid of that birds nest mess Ducati thought was retro.

That looks great and yes the birds best is just plain messy.

I've tidied mine up a lot but I think sorting the wiring once and for all is going to be a project in its own right.

How did you sort the clutch cable out of interest?

Re-routed the clutch cable plus a slightly bigger loop where it turns down to the engine.
Throttle cable re- made shorter and flipped to exit below resevoir.
Brake line replaced with one the correct length.
Wiring cliped to follow cable/hoses.
Speedo wiring loom re-routed to left side of headstock which is less noticable when on side stand.

Thanks for the info and nice job. Stock cable / hose routing is appalling, yours looks much better.
