7 - Speedmaster

Yep that's right. Handle bar change No.7.

All that great welding that Big Dog did on my MICRO BEND-A-LICIOUS APES No.6 handles bars did has come to naught. Rode on local freeway during the week. First longish ride with the bars. At highway speeds both hands are numb from vibration. Pulling in the clutch with a numb left hand is interesting. Below 110kmh there is very little vibration. Get to that and above and the vibration is insane. I thought the slug that was fitted into the bars to give them strength when we made them wider would have killed this. It didn't.

So got a set of Venture Tracker Bars. Got them real cheap as the shop had the wrong price tag on them. Like 60% cheaper.





Wide with pullback. So need some risers. Ones that will still let me use the Biltwell Slim Line riser. So what to use? How about a 36mm socket. How about 2 of them. That's what I used.


Vibration. Some but not enough to numb my hands as quickly bar 6 did. 

Will I change the Trackers in a few days time? Stuffed if I know.
