Hey fellas... I have an '89 CBR600 F1 that I'm building. I want to put some Renthal 12 O'Clock bars on instead of the clip ons. Do I have to buy a new top mount for the triple trees? Or can I just drill it and find mounts on eBay?

Anyone have suggestions for what product to buy? Will I also have to buy new cables and brake lines?

Let me know
Tupp

My terminology is correct. Terminology is different everywhere you go but it does not mean it's wrong. If I ask anyone who rides around here what the "Dirtbike bars" are called on a motorcycle they will say "12-O'Clock Bars"

If I search eBay for the mounts what term should I look for and what is a fair price?

If you searched for dirt bike bars and risers on eBay you'll come up with what you're looking for. If you search for 12 o'clock bar you come up with stunted products that save your tail when you hit 12 o'clock on a wheelie hence the name 12 o'clock bar

Depending on the size of bars you are looking for it will either be "7/8" risers", or "1-1/8" risers". ;)





Fatty bar mounts:

Standard bar mounts:

Are you running the standard F1 top triple clamp? I think I have one here I could take a look at in order to find the best possible place and procedure to drill them for risers, as well as how tall the risers themselves will have to be to allow the handlebars to clear the fork tops. ;)

Yes'Sir factory F1 clamp

I also think I should use a drill press... I'll never get that right if I hold a cordless to it

You might be able to get away with rerouting them depending on how high you go. There are a lot of sellers on eBay that do custom brake lines. Motion Pro is a good bet for throttle and clutch. Best to get the bars mounted before buying any of those though.

seems to me that if your sitting on the bike and you have a bar coming out of the tail for stunting it would be at my 6-o'clock.... then when the bike is standing like a grandfather clock the bar is definitely at the 6-o'clock

Eitherway... for sake of argument Ill call them "dirtbike" bars from here on out since it seems to confuse

I also think that Ill look up those risers for the 7/8" because I think that is what the factory clip ons are...

The 12 o'clock position on an actual clock is when both hands are pointing strait up... hence when the bike is pointed strait up it is in the "12 o'clock" position. A '12 bar is designed to be the stopping point for that particular position on a bike. From what I have seen in my years is that it is not only a bar for stopping the bike at that position in certain stunts, but as well serves as a foot hold, and can be used for plenty of other crazy shit involving climbing around on the bike at speed.


I'm not sure who in Chicago is misinformed on stunt bike terminology, but they should hop onto the internet and hit up google and get some education on the subject.
