    Bars

    Picked up a '17 Tuono 1100 Factory. Amazing machine. I have a Futura also and for the street that riding position is perfect so I thought I would love the handlebar. After spending some time on the bike, I hate the handlebar. The width and height are fine but It's way to straight and way to flat. I know people are putting bars on from older Tuonos and they're about right on the pull back but still to flat. What I'd like to find is a bar that has the pull back and down angle of the Futura clip ons. Does such a thing exist?

    Thanks for the response! Those look really nice. I guess you just drill and tap the threaded hole on the left side for the TC paddles and good to go?

    If I roll them back far enough to get a down angle like clip ons do they still have a decent sweep back? It looks like they might?

    If you're going to go with the Rizoma bars, you may want to have a look at the MA009. Same kind of pull back but higher. I bought them for my Duc and am considering them for the Tuono also

    If the 006 are lower I'll go with those. I just want the correct angle, not more height.

    Thanks Morganator!!!!! Looks like a better sweep back but still very flat. I'm hoping I can rotate them back and maybe get some down angle.

    Went ahead and ordered the Rizoma "low wide bar" because it has less rise so when I roll it back it won't get much closer. Also gonna reverse the risers to move the bar forward a bit. I think it should be pretty nice!

    Just had the first ride with the Rizomas. Better, at least I was able to get some down angle but still too straight. I wonder if it would weaken them to heat them up a bit and give them more sweep?
