Changing a single 'clip-on' handlebar. CBR 125 R 58 plate

Hi guys. Having followed advice given in another thread, I bought me a new single handlebar. Looking at it it seems quite simple, a couple of screws on the controls to loosen then slide off, re-tighten on new handlebar but would like to have a read through or watch a video of someone doing this. I've searched the only place i know to look for this kind of stuff which is youtube and found nothing.


Hoping someone on the off chance has done it in here


cheers

You need to remove the screws completely so you'll be able to lift the controls away from the bar because there's a little piece of plastic/metal that sits in the holes you can see on the new clip on. Then just simply remove the old one fit the new one and put it all back together again, it's really easy.

no it wont be that tight you just need to loosen the bolts holding it in place and then it will slide off you might need to loosen the main bar as well so you can move the bar to the left to clear the throttle tube then slide the new bar into it before placing back on top of the fork

No....don't remove the Huge hexagonal bolt.......unless you want a fork spring to hit you in the face...... :wink: :lol: :lol:

 

thank you :) loosen then or will the handlebar just slide on and off then be kept in place as said earlier by that single bolt on the underside

Do yourself a favour by removing the mirror first too otherwise it'll be flapping about like a good 'un and could be a pain in the botty. :-)

Good luck with it and let is know how it goes!

The handlebar should just slide off the top of the fork leg once the pinch bolt on the side is loosened........although a little bit of twisting on the handlebar may help to remove it....if you can twist it.......otherwise a little bit of leverage between the top yoke and the underneath of the handlebar may be required..... :wink:

new handlebar fitted :) Had a bit of trouble removing old one until we realized there was a spring clip :oops:


Feels a lot better despite being only a small difference angle-wise. Would anyone be interested in seeing the ever-so-slightly bent old bar?

Well done mate, told you it was easy. That's one more thing you can add to your book of knowledge. Standard handle bars are pretty much the same just a bit more of a pain to get the controls off so if you ever need to do it again don't worry. :)
