  • 650 mini apes on a roadstar

    I always liked the bars on my old 650 and really hate these beach bars on 2006 rs, has anyone tried this swap?

    If they are 1" in diameter and no taller than 10" you should have no problems.

    The rise is 8 inchs and except for the 650 having one signal switch on the left the controls look identical. The only thing that worried me was cable length. I didn't want to spend 60 for bars and find i need to spend more to lengthen the cables to make them fit, somebody must have done this swap because i think the 650 bars are a better fit than those wide beach bars the 950 t uses beach bars too in my opinion those hurt the look of both bikes and for me they are not comfortable for very long

      One thing you’ll probably need to do is index the controls by drilling a couple holes in bars as the controls have a small dowel protruding to keep them from turning. Once you remove one, you’ll see.

        Hi guys, I'm brand new to the forum. I just picked up a 2004 xv1700 Silverado midnight and was wondering if anyone could tell me if I can put apes like 12 or 14" on this bike with stock wires and cables? Any help is much appreciated
