What Should You Look For?

There is far more to picking out the best pair of custom handlebars for motorcycles than the style! You should also try and take these elements into account:

Comfort. How do the handlebars feel? This should be one of the most important aspects of your custom bike design. You always want to be comfortable riding your bike, even if this means it won’t necessarily be the flashiest on the road.

Aesthetic. This goes a bit beyond the style/shape of your custom handlebars. You certainly want to consider the size and finish. Keep in mind that your bar is to compliment your bike. Your handlebar should not be the “focal point” but rather enhance the overall beauty of your motorcycle making it the “focal point” that everyone would admire.

Height. Height is one of the most popular components of custom handlebars for motorcycles. Comfort should be taken into account as you consider this, however, safety is of utmost importance in conjunction with comfort and handling. The evaluation of the wiring should also be taken into consideration as to whether you may use your existing wiring or the need to upgrade. 

By keeping these elements in mind, it should be a cinch to find the perfect custom handlebars for your bike. Browse our selection of custom bars that will make your ride more comfortable, more eye-catching and make your own personal statement in the world of other motorcycle enthusiasts.
