    Woodcraft 41mm 1.5" rise clip ons. Have had them on my bike for 3 years (give or take) and still love them.

    I have only used stock but I have added pull back risers...I have a week core and built the bike to be a tourer....granted I have used it more of a sport bike lately with trips to the dragon the last 2 years...

    sitting back helps me take it all in!

    Thank you everyone for the replies so far. I can't tell you how many posts I've read on this topic. I previously had my mind set on Fz1 OEM bars, but now I'm having second thoughts. They just don't seem like they'll have enough clearance..

    Moderators: if there is any way to add the Renthal Ultra low 758 and a "stock bar with aftermarket risers" to the poll please do so.

    Thank you!

    I've had the FZ1 handlebars on my bike for a few years now and it's definitely an upgrade from stock, and it's cheap as well. As for the clearance, for me its only a minor issue when I lock the bike (it will still lock, albeit overtime, it will leave a scuff mark on the gas tank due to the screw on the bottom of the horn/turn signal box screw) The screw on the bottom of the ignition control will barely hit the gas tank when you turn it all the way to the right. Maybe there's a way to avoid this, but I personally do not mind it, but others may.

    almost any bar setup can cause the controls to contact the tank. You have to adjust controls to clear the tank and mirror mounts before committing to their location. I adjust my controls so that they don't contact any part of my bike and can turn my bars lock to lock.

    Default Stock Handlebar

    I'm looking for a stock handlebar to replace mine. I looked into different options but I'd rather keep it original. Does anyone here have a stock handlebar for sale?
