    Anyone have pics of just handlebars not whole set up umi?

    I am considering putting Dirtbike bars on the RXP Just the bars not the UMI steering set up is too expensive right now. Anyone have pictures of how they have done it? I saw some pictures but none were close up all are pretty far away.

    As I get this completed I will post pictures, parts, and DIY information if anyone else want to do it.

    OK I was able to get the handle bar off a dirt bike adapted to the RXP and I think it looks pretty damn good. Attached are pictures of how I did it.
    First of all I took apart the stock stuff, took the pad and the bars off. I went to the local motorcycle shop and bought a set of cheep dirt bike bars ( I like the CR Honda style bend what ever bend feels the best to you will work)they bolted right up. I took one if the new grips for an ATV (make sure they are for an ATV not a dirtbike) (the dirt bike ones are 2 different sizes)and used it to figure out where I wanted the stock thumb throttle to be. When that was figured out I marked it so I could drill3/16 hole in the new bars for the set screw. I used the stock thumb leaver because i didnt want to buy one yet. you will need to glue the grips on when your done testfitting eveything. next I had to come up with a way to mount the key post. I took a 1"x1" angle allumn. and shaped it to look close to the mount post. (there is a picture attached) I mounted it to the steering stem and attached the key post to it. next I had to relocate the buzzer, I pulled it back into the hull an tywraped it to the rest of the harness. The final thing that needs to be done is to mount the switches for "start" and "trim". Mark (hydrotoys ) is sending me an aftermarket one to mount everything in. You could always use the stock one too.I hope this helps anyone else who wants to do it.

    How do you handle the "mode" and "set" buttons? Also, where do you get the DESS mount?
