Handlebar shims

Recommended Posts

Anyone know where I can get hold of some shims to take the handlebar clamp diameter down from 1/8 to 7/8 ? I’ve checked flea bay but can only find some that will be shipped from China so don’t fancy them ,any ideas ??

Sorry yes it is , basically I want to run a standard pair of renthal braced bars in the same clamps that are designed for the braceless renthal fatbars ? The old type are described as 7/8 handlebar whereas the fat bars are described as 1/8 so I’m not sure what this refers to?

 The old gasser bar clamps would work. But why would you go back to a weaker bar setup? By the way, it is 1inch and 1/8 vs 7/8.

It’s on a beta so the clamps are part of the top yoke hence needing the shims, always preferred the feel of braced bars it’s just a personal thing , not necessarily weaker just a different set up , Michael brown and dan Thorpe up until very recently have always used the older style renthals
