    Aftermarket handlebars

    Cab you install aftermarket atv or motorcycle (TAG, Pro Taper, Renthal, etc.) handlebars on a Honda f12x? Is there an advantage to aftermarket bars? Are there watercraft specific bars? Thanks...

    bars....

    im also curious about this, i've seen an r-12x with pro-taper bars so i would assume they fit.

    I've read somewhere that it has been done, you have to take apart the controls or something like that to make them fit. You use ones from a bicycle, BMX syle grips, I have a set of ODI's on my polaris with the locks and they work great. I can't rember if I read it here on the HULK or PWC today.

    i can be done, but a mount has to be made to hold aftermarket bars as the stock bar clamps are positioned in a V because the stock honda bar is a V shape. i think patrat from australia has them on his ski, check it out in honda performance

    I took it a step further and ground off the ugly "Elephant Ears" that hold on the stock plastic shrouds. It looks great after a prime and a couple coats of flat black! I used Pro Taper ATV bars, they are wide enough to fit all the controls. I still need to do something about the ugly finger throttle. Has anyone ever replaced theirs? Curious for suggestions, i heard you had to have some kind of adapter for the cable. Looks like standard cable to me though.


    PS: Don't laugh at all the extra S**T I have in the garage! haha
