CSR Handle Bars

Postby Martin.S » Thu May 23, 2019 3:37 pm

CSR handlebars - were they the same from 1962 - 1966? - Would anyone have the part number and possibly dimensions, pictures, maybe a source?
Cheers

Please - Does anyone have a pair of CSR handlebars that they could measure for me - they appear to be swept back but no pull back.

Perhaps not seen, the bars lay quite flat. That may be a good test, as bars are often raised somewhere.

These Triumph T90/100 bars look so similar but the bents are not as tight and they're not as deep - bringing the hands closer to the tank - and reading period right ups- pinching of the thumbs was a problem.

There are pinching thumbs problems bars are tight to the tank. You do need to turn them in the clamp to get max clearance. I have found some Triumph bars are 1" dia though, not sure if my memory is correct about that.

I've fitted these Triumph bars, they're flat but as said before that they don't lead as forward as the CSR bars, I cut 7/8 ths from the middle to make them a little narrower but I just can't arrange the cables so that they don't touch the paintwork. Am I trying in vain and they did foul the paintwork from new?

I don't think it was ever intended cables would not touch paintwork somewhere. More important they have no sharp bends so they function OK. also will not snag on anything and cause an accident.
