Handlebar size swapping
I combed through the first few pages of threads, but didn't find any answers. Long story short, the '00 vn750a i bought has short 7/8" bars on it. I didn't realize they weren't stock (same issue with rear turn signals and seat), and ordered new bars, since original ones were bent. Got the new bars in...I was a bit shocked.
I realize my rookie-ness shows through with this, but is it difficult to swap out the bars if they are bigger? The new bars are 1". Will they fit under the piece that secures them in? I can certainly see now why there was so much slack in my lines.
To build off that...all these threads I searched through regarding grips are saying 7/8" grips are stock...yet the bars I bought are 1", which were supposedly stock bars. I'm so confused. (Note: the bars I bought were from a '03 vn750. My understanding is that stock parts on vn750's from 86-2006 are about the same.)
