Want to know what position your hands will be on your Star with accessory handlebars before installing them? You can calculate the approximate position of the grips on accessory handlebars using the rise, width, and pullback measurements with each accessory handlebar offered. Here’s what those measurements mean.
RISE – This is how far the handlebars come up from the handlebar clamp. This is measured vertically from the center of the bar at the clamp on the handlebar risers to the center of the end of the handlebar at the grip.
WIDTH – This is how wide the handlebars are. This is measured straight across from the center of the handlebar end on each side.
PULLBACK – This is how far the handlebars come back from the handlebar clamp. This is measured horizontally from the center of the bar at the clamp on the handlebar risers to the center of the end of the handlebar at the grip.
The first step is to measure these three specifications on your current handlebars as shown in the illustrations. Next, compare those measurements to the measurements listed in this catalog for the accessory handlebars you are considering to determine the approximate location the handlebars of your choice will have. If you are also considering accessory handlebar risers, be sure to take their affect on rise and pullback into account.
Example: Your current handlebars have 4" rise with 8" pullback and they’re 30" wide. The bars you are thinking about getting have 6-1/2" rise, 12" pullback, and are 33-1/2" wide. Therefore, you now know that these bars are going to be 2-1/2" taller, come back towards you 4" more and be 3-1/2" wider than what you currently have. If you are also adding accessory risers, you would add in their effect as well.
