    PLease help with handlebars!!!!!!

    Ok. Took off the stock cover and painted handlebars black. Looks great. If the paint doesnt hold up then I will get some UMI's. Here is the question. I know that the on/off piece and the throttle can go on the aftermarket handlebars just by simply drilling a hole. I can even get a new throttle lever if I want. Here is my question - If I get a new yamaha grip on the right side of the handle bar can I just glue it on? Also how easy is it to mount the stock trim keeping the stock grip on the new handlebars. Thanks!!!!

    Ive seen that post - guess my question is how easy is it to put the trim on the aftermarket handlebars while keeping the stock grip. Is it as easy as just taking it on and off. Are the UMI handlebars the same diameter as the stock ones-I ask this to make sure the stock yamaha grip will go on the UMI handlebars.

    Learned this recently from some board members and research here. Any 7/8 motorcorss bar will work. The UMI does not change much for what bars you would need. Some motorcross bars are 1 1/8 for those you need an adapter. The adapter is in an oval shape so it has to be flattened to match up to the GPR plate.

    A popular bend is CR mid ebay has a ton of choices or local bike shops. If you are going after a certain bend bring your bars to compare the diff.

    Keep in mind you can use all stock controls since no matter what the ends of the bars are 7/8.

    You will need bars that are more than 31" wide.
    A good set of bars runs between $30 and $75 with a pad

    Ok I just took the handlebars off. Trim comes right off but does screw into the bar. So on the new bar I have to create threads for the trim screw??? Correct me if I am wrong.

    The trim screw goes through the bar, the threads are on the trim assembly. One thing to consider; if your aftermarket bars are wider or sit higher than the stock ones, your Yamaha cover won't fit.
