1980 XR handlebar interchange

Recommended Posts

Hello -

I'm looking for some replacement bars for my '80 XR80 with slightly tweaked bars. I know '79 to '82 XR80's had the same bars, but will later 1980's XR80 bars work? How about XL80 bars? The new repro bars at $80 are a little rich for my blood...

Cheers,

John

Any old 7/8" bar will fit in the clamps. Take some rough measurements of the existing bar if you want to get something close in size to the stockers.

You can use any bars that feels comfortable, even ATV bars. I used Tag Mini-Play's.

Yup. I used MSR CR mid bend on my '98 XR100. Cheap, a direct bolt on, a small amount of difference in spline location but still better than 70% engagement. Stock bars are too wide and feel bulky imho.
