Ok, I have searched, but not finding what I am looking for. For a bike that is so highly talked about, the 950 seems to be a bit of a bastard child when it comes to the aftermarket. Find everything for the 650, 1100, even 1300 V Star, but not the 950!
Anyway, I know most people are looking for more comfort from their handlebar setup, but I am looking for more style. I have riden a Suzuki M109R and Triumph Thunderbird Storm as well as sitting on the HD Breakout and my favorite, the Star Raider. I want a handlebar setup that fits more in line with those bikes.
The 950's handlebars pull back a little too much for my with too much curve back like a beach bar. I want more of a drag or straight bar setup, but having a hard time determining exactly what to jump and try.
I like the look of these Yamaha bars:
But of course not listed for the 950...
Here is shot of the Breakout:
I obviously want something that clears the gas tank when turning and doesn't have me hunched way over to reach the bars. When sitting on the Breakout and Raider, I can reach the bars with little to no real reach and elbows not locked out - still have some bend to them and it feels quite comfortable to me.
While the easy of bolting in a Drag bar like that Star Accessory one would be nice, that locks you in to one height and pull back, so it better be right the first time. Other option is risers with separate bar. That would give flexibility of being able to just swap risers if needed something different.
What do you guys think? Anyone done similar? If so, which route did you go and why?
Also, any and all pictures of setups would be appreciated. Can you provide info like which bike and which bar/riser setup you have? And what, if anything, you might have done differently?
All input appreciated!
