Today I decided to spend time on POP. I have not been happy with the angle of the handlebars when riding it so I swapped them for another pair I had in the garage.
Removal is straightforward, slacken and remove clutch and front brake supports, remove switchgear and then undo the bolts holding the handlebars in place. Slow and a bit messy but after a while I had everything removed and the new handlebars fitted. Then I repopulated the bars with all the stuff. This is where the problem began. Due to the push/pull twistgrip assembly being separate from the (Suzuki) switchgear the combined width was too much to allow the hand grip/throttle assembly to be in the correct position. This pushed the brake lever up at an awkward angle and would have required around 30mm to be cut off the twistgrip.
So, back to the drawing board. In the end I decided the only solution was to cut some length off the original handlebars to reposition my hands in a more natural way. I trimmed 25mm off each end. These handlebars were significantly wider than the ones I had been trying to fit by the way.
Then it was a matter of fitting everything back on and tightening the screws up once I has everything in the most ergonomic position. A couple of hours work or so, but at least I have the bars a little more to my liking.
