  • Handlebar inner diameter

    Hey guys I swapped out the handlebars on my xv1700 for some 12" mini apes. It came out nice but now I'm trying to figure out what to put in the ends of the bars since the old end weights don't fit.. . Any ideas?
    Does anyone know what the inner diameter of the stock one inch bars are (7/8?)

    I can measure tomorrow when I get a chance just though maybe someone knows off hand

      Where did you get your mini apes from? I too am thinking about changing my bars too.

    Why do you need to put "anything" in there? If you think you need to put something in there (and you don't need to) why not just make the original weights fit or measure the inside of the bars you just took off?

      Yeah was gonna measure tomorrow ... I think I'm just gonna splurge on a new set of grips that have the ends on them.

        Doesn't look good with just holes in the ends that's why I was thinking about universal ends but like I said I may as well get a new set of grips to compliment the new bars

          I think about the only way to use the OEM grips would be to cut the threaded insert out of the oem bars and use it in the new bars. You would have to either weld or epoxy it into place. To weld it you would find the location into the new bar and drill a hole in the bar then plug weld it at the hole. I bought a set of knock off ISO grips from Ebay similar to these and they are comfortable and inexpensive.
