Adapting a set of bars onto a V11 sport

These are for 1-1/8" dirt bike bars such as ProTaper, Hebo, Domino, Renthal, etc.
Cheaper ones can be purchased that are not adjustable.
I am assuming the bolts on these are long enough to go all the way through our triple clamps, but I cannot be sure.

I just noticed yesterday that Spiegler-usa changed all the part numbers on the handlebars. They went from AN to ZN. Pretty easy to cross reference.

With that uncertainty, the best routed would be to rubber mount them to reduce vibration and let them float them on a slab of rubber, over the valley.
But this would also require bolt sleeves and a rubber washer on the back side, in which case the bolts are not long enough. Drat!

This may be slightly off topic but can these 'raised handlebars' be easily reconverted to standard bars? I'm going to look at a V11 sport at the weekend that has 'raised bars' but don't want them basically. It says that you need to drill the yoke to fit them so I'm guessing to revert it to standard you need a new yolk. How much are those?

The greater expense would be replacing the clip-ons unless they are included with the bike.
EDIT: I thought about this and wondered-what year is the sport you're going to look at? The early ones had clip-ons and the later were fitted with handlebars like pictured above.

So for about $123 usd it's done. Have a buddy provide an extra set of helping hands, makes it a lot easier.

You might find someone on the board who would trade parts with you or have a set of early clip-ons they have taken off.
I have a set of stock clip-ons I just took off my 2000 V11 Sport that I would part with. Good stock condition, complete with factory screw in bar weights and all. If you'd like to make me an offer, please email me at : email@example.com
I've had 2 back surgeries so I know I won't be needing them again...
