Who runs flipped clubmans?

Thinking of running clubman bars upside down, like upright bars, on my maxi. Anybody else using them like this? Pics of them on your maxi? Hows the comfort level?

I did. Feels fine, looks kinda funky. It's up to you anyways. But I have to say it is a lot more comfortable than them being down on a Maxi.

Cables all over the place.

Re: Who runs flipped clubmans?

Hmm, hadn't considered the angle at which the cables come off the controls. Also thinking the pullback might be a bit extreme for upright bars. Probably just gonna run regular low rise bars if I can find a set I like.

By the way, that Maxi is clean as hell. Thanks for the pics!

Re: Who runs flipped clubmans?

WTF? Haven't you guys heard of knarps and shortening your cables?

Re: Who runs flipped clubmans?

those cables are too long. if they were trimmed it wouldnt look that weird.

Re: Who runs flipped clubmans?

this mofk runs flipped clubmans on his magnum, the magnum dash fills in the center section so they look pretty good. not that great of a picture of the bars but u get the idea.

Inverted on the BAT

Re: Who runs flipped clubmans?

Who cares?

Re: Who runs flipped clubmans?

Don't listen to those fools. Get the clubmans and run em the way you want, much more comfortable than straight bars.

Can someone tell me the diameter of these bars? (i've got the top yoke and the brackets & the m7 allen bolts, thought they where standard bicycle size... d'oh!)

Cheers (edited)

I've had 3 sets, all standard 7/8 inch.

If they are the black powder coated you may need to grind the coating off to get your throttle to work smoothly. Sometimes the coating is too thick. What are you mounting it on and/or what part are you having issues with?

Re: Who runs flipped clubmans?

makes you look like a n00b

Re: Who runs flipped clubmans?

I don't care about being labeled a n00b, grom, etc. I'm not into mopeds to impress anybody, and the whole idea of elitism on an Internet forum based around mopeds makes me laugh. I just think they are fun to ride and work on, and I like customizing stuff to make it my own.

On that note, thanks for all the pics! Lotta good lookin bikes. Still not sold on flipped clubmans, but I may just pick up a set from treats and try 'em anyway.

never get tired of seeing rebel's bat. Love that thing

Re: Who runs flipped clubmans?

i like to customize things and make it look dumb

upright clubmans can look alright and may be more comfy,

but they are made & designed to be drops. mostly to mimic the style and stance of old GP racers and the cafe bikes that copied em.

I mean sure you can do whatever you want with them, but you couls also just get low rise bars if you want bars that have a rise...

Re: Who runs flipped clubmans?

Yeah I ran clubmans on my Honda cb450 for a while, but long rides were murder on my back and wrists. Switched back to the stock bars after a week or so.

Has anybody run These zundapp bars successfully on a puch? Like the style, not sure about those holes though.

Re: Who runs flipped clubmans?

Just get a clubman and fir it to the bike and get on her and see if you like the feel with them inverted, you can always flip them up after if you dont like the feel when you ride. I changed out the blocks n yokes holding on mine because inverted was a little too low for my liking, the extra inch higher made the difference.

Re: Who runs flipped clubmans?

That's an idea, what did you use to raise them? Looking at the top plate on my forks there is a depression/valley where the bars are supposed to sit. not sure how spacers would work.

Should have no problem with the zunndap bars. They are the same OD as every other bar.

I rock low rise square type bars and I love them. Super comfy and I like the way they look. You could even flip them and you have square type clubmans.

Re: Who runs flipped clubmans?

Taykoff, your free spirit is rad! Love the color. Clubmans look good too, goes good with the tank.

Bugteeth, I saw those on treatland and thought they might look cool as well. I think I want to run one of These fairings, and I think they would look good behind it.
