Lower bars on Brutale

Was going to add this in a couple of days, but as Mr Quacker998 has recently asked the question I thought a post now more topical. I know he said apart from Monster bars.

The bars are S4r/S2r with Rizoma bar end mirrors and bar ends.

No problem installing apart from me measuring everything six times over. I had to drill a couple of small recesses in the S4r bars to take switch gear locator pins, I did not bother with the lever/reservoir clamps.

All in all very pleased with the look and feel.

Apologies for the picture quality.

Looks great. Anything to bring down the triangle, in my opinion.

Time is a delusion. Lunchtime doubly so.

Absolutely gorgeous! I was looking into clip ons for mine but they would be too aggressive and probably run into tank clearence issues, those in the other hand, are perfect! Great job!

Very nice! Thanks for posting the pictures. How much wider are they compared to the stock bars? Did you cut them at all?

I like it. It gives it more of a cafe-racer look

Thanks for your comments.

To answer your questions;

Lock clearance is cutting it fine. I've added a 1mm felt pad to the lock stop to ensure the indicator switch does not hit the air intake plastics whilst doing the car park shuffle.

Bars, from memory, are about the same length. Initially i thought i would cut off 15mm from the ends, but needed this as i have mounted the mirrors directly to the bars. Rizoma say use their bar ends. I didn't find this satisfactory.

I did have a quick look at the suburban machinery bars, but thought there may be an issue with the switch gear and reservoirs clearing the clocks.

As a foot note. I have been thinking of doing this little mod for some time, but always putting it on the back burner. The kick start was getting back on the track. I had taken my bike on track with the stock bars, but was not over happy with how i felt, i felt as if i was perched on the bike. With this set-up i feel a little more part of the bike and it feels a little more planted at the front end, but that's just me.

Best Regards

Si.

You may be interested to know that the F4 steering stop has a smaller turn radius then the Brutale. That would be an easy bolt on mod and the part is not very expensive.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.
