10 Affordable Farkles for Under $40

Upgrade your ride without downgrading your dough.

Published on 01.10.2015

5. Tusk Universal Big Bar Clamp Kit ($29.99)

tusk universal oversized handlebar clamp kit

  Fits inside standard 7/8″ handlebar clamps.
  Allows the use of 1-1/8″ tapered handlebars.
  Raises handlebar height by 3/4 inch.

Need a lift? Slumping over to reach for your handlebars while standing up on the pegs off-road can become excruciating on long rides. Raising the bars upward can afford a more relaxed position on your dual sport motorcycle. Handlebar risers make this happen. And, if you plan to upgrade the bike with some oversized handlebars, what you need is a 7/8″ to 1-1/8″ handlebar adapter.


Tusk’s Universal Big Bar Clamp Kit does both. It’s lightweight, strong and installs easily on your existing stock 7/8″ diameter handlebar clamps. This Big Bar Clamp Kit lets you upgrade your bike with oversized handlebars and risers for a fraction of the market cost.

Shopping Options: Rocky Mountain ATV/MC

  1. This is not a simple bolt on item (Tusk 1 1/8″ handlebar). Even the photo shows you need something like the Roxx bar risers to make it bit as the stock mount is for 7/8″ bars. This fact was not mentioned in the article.

  3. How did you put the bar ends back in that klr? Just did this mod on m y 2014 klr but don’t know how to put the bar ends back

  4. Coleman saddle pad is barely a half inch thick and pretty useless. I gave mine away for free after a 600 mile ride in which mine did ZIP ZILCH NADA for comfort. In fact, I rode through rain and it made my behind and inner thighs feel about 1000x’s worse than if I didn’t have it.

    • Everyone’s different, I guess: I’ve heard a few different guys praise the Coleman as a cheap, yet useful add-on that gave them some saddle relief.
