Sport bars for 650?

Postby Camreno » Sun Oct 23, 2011 3:41 pm

I read the last thread about sport bars but Didnt really seem to help considering it was maily for africa. Im in the U.S and looking for some "sportier" bars for my 09 er-6n. Can anyone enlighten me on where to find them and mabye how to install them? I was reading alot of things about drilling and fitting and what not.

Thanks in advance

I have Suburban Machinery bars and I'm happy with them. Simple installation and durable stainless steel construction. Whether or not you like the style is a matter of preference. They're also somewhat adjustable as far as tilt. They are pre-drilled correctly.

That is a 650R. I would guess that these bars would work on an ER6N but I can't guarantee it. There are more options for the "N" than the "F" due to increased clearance. The fairings limit what will fit on the Ninja.

Go to Denniskirk.com or something. They have hundreds of bars to choose from for like $40 or something dumb like that. They are 7/8" like all the others. Or buy some used stock clip ons off of a CBRF3/CBRF3/SV650 and mount em up.

I don't think ver ymany people have considered that, with the mounting style of hte bars for the 650/ER6, a LOT of dirt bike style bars will fit as long as they're 7/8.

With an er6 "N" you can put just about any type on there. MX bars (7/8" clamp) or clip-ons.
If you use clip-ons, make sure they have 41mm clamps.
Clip ons will be the "sportier" option and come in a variety of angles and heights. Some even have adjustability built into them. For example: http://www.convertibars.com/index.cfm
It all depends on how much you want to spend.
Also, could you better define your use of the term "sportier". Do you want to be bent over like on a Super Sport bike, or do you just want something with a little less rise?

I want sport bars so I can corner better, I do also like the look of the position, now your pretty much sitting straight up, almost a standard. Also want to get out of the elements, now thats its getting cold, I pretty much lay down all the way to work anyway.

The best way to get out of the elements on your ER6N is to turn it into a ER6F. :lol :lol

Clip ons from an sv650 or cbrf2/f3 would work great to get you out of the air a bit. I use stock sv650 clip ons on my 650r race bike. They are about $30 a pair online. I mounted mine below the top triple.

I had a set of woodcraft clip-ons (41mm I believe) that I mounted below the triple, great for the track. I have short arms so it kept me closer to the bike. But we went on a trip last summer, and I wanted to sit up a bit more and be more comfortable. Had a random dirt bike handlebar in the garage, so we mounted that up, worked great. Man, made flipping that thing into corners amazing. :)
