Fat Bars and Heated Grip Install.

Post by Fry » Sun Sep 24, 2017 3:43 pm

Just got done installing a set of Orange Ano'd Renthal Fat Bars and Heated Grips. Though I know this is a lie, I feel my '17 SDR is getting close to being done Mod wise....But are they ever really done?

Spiff, I got the Renthal 827 Bend which Renthal lists for a KTM SX 125-450 2015 which is fitting as I feel that the 17 SDR is just a mental street bike with serious Dirt bike DNA, that's how I ride it at least, LOL.

I didn't cut the Bars down yet, they roughly measure about 2"s wider than the stock set. I have yet to determine if I like the leverage of the slightly wider bars at this point? In a week or so if need be I can loosen all of the grips and controls, slide them in a 1" on each side and make the cuts with the bar still mounted.

Overall I like the bend, still have the bars mounted in the forward mounting position and only minimally cant'ed back towards the rider. My arms are perfectly straight from shoulder to fist, and the reach to the Clutch and Brake levers keep my wrists in line with my shoulders, this is how I have always set up my bars and controls, seems to keep pain away from wrists and shoulders. Maybe a wives tale.

Not a wives tale. I could barely do a 150 miles on the bike before I switched my bars out.
For me it was all about "unkinking" my wrists. It used to bother me to just cover/grab the brake.

The bar looks great! What brand brake/clutch levers are those? Are they the short or long levers?

They are Austin Racing, Bendable\Foldable levers in the Long variety. In actuality they are just rebranded TWM levers and due to some issues AR had with not telling people they just rebranded the levers they have since stopped selling them. Motomummy does have the TWM levers, which are the exact same thing. Quality wise, Fitment wise, they are excellent.

You know the poerparts triples would match those bars pretty nicely.
