RAISED HANDLEBARS

Postby JohnnyBeckett » Wed Nov 11, 2020 5:13 pm

HI ALL have you had problems with raised handlebars moving without having knurling on where they clamp on to the headstock i have been trying to find bars with knurling on, but the ones i have found the knurling does not line up with the clamps on the headstock, armours do raised handlebars they are 30"wide and 5" raised and a 5 1/2" pull back but they do not have knurling on them i did email them about the bars and they said they have had no feedback about the bars moving without having the knurling on them, WHAT DO YOU THINK :?: and i do not want to pin them because they are locked in place and if you need to adjust them you can not, or do know of what make of bike i can fit on my Ariel :? :? :(

We encountered exactly this problem in my old job, we ended up making a jig and knurling the bars ourselves.

Use the edge of the knurl and be patient or you will undersize the piece unless you have a piece of solid inside. Use a straight knurl pattern. Nev

Clamp a part of a powerfile sanding belt between and it won't move.

Many of them went over to sidecars (er Chairs) where you had 2 mad people in close proximity leaning all over the place. Nev

The first time I was in the chair of a kneeler was back in 73,that was a very quick imp engine one, the next was in a ow31 tz750 Yamaha,in 1980 the memory of that was bloody fantasic,6 inches off the road and doing up to 160mph, lack of vision through your head shaking so much and every bump hammered your body on the rough roads we were on at the time. I was a crazy young guy then.not an old fart as now.Never forgot it though.The guys in them kneelers really deserve respect like Nev says they are barmy a kind of their own.
