bar change newbie

Postby FZAmbeR600R » Mon May 27, 2013 9:21 pm

ImageThis is my bike. I was told I need to be asking my questions in this section since my bike is not perfectly stock, although I don't really think of it as a streetfighter either. Anyway, I am going to change the bars to dirtbike 7/8" protapers with no crossbar. My boyfriend will mount them for me using generic dirtbike mounts and maybe adding a cylindrical piece of metal around the lower shaft of the mounts to make them look more like a part of the bike. I just wanted to see some pictures of other fzr's with dirtbike bars and maybe get some suggestions.

You'll need a different upper for the triples...from a Seca II, I think. Easily found on ebay. You will also need some bar risers so you have enough room to clear the fork tube caps with the new bars. You have to play around with cable and wiring routing going to the controls since the bars will be sitting higher than the stock position.

Read through some of the threads in this section, many guys have done this and have pics and explanations on how to do it and what is needed.

Nice bike :)

K, I have been looking at some bar/mount modifications on here and I think the best bet would be going with the Seca riser with mounts. Does anyone know if a 1981 Yamaha Seca XJ750 Upper Fork Clamp fit a 91 fzr 600r? Cuz that's what I found.
