    Changing Handlebars?

    Can I put UMI bars on the stock RXP steering collar? If I can then what happens to my buttons. I know about UMI's button housing but what about the mode and set functions and lanyard connection?

    Thanks

    Most people just zip tie the mode button to the steering stem...

    You can use your Stock housing. It just looks a little out...
    Look at this post and you will see the bars on a stock stem..

    Renthals on a stock stem. We did bend them a tad to match the stock bar.

    The doublewalled Renthals took two fat guys on 2 Six foot pipes to move the ends of the bar 1/2".

    I wouldn't suggest that with the UMI unless you are fond of pretzals.
