tm handlebar mounts

Any ideas where to source a suitable 7/8" handlebar mount for my 2014 tm 300 en?

Looking for original part if possible, but will go with aftermarket too, just not bar risers. I can't seem to find in any catalog.

I'd hate to use bar risers as that's not what I'm looking to do. I just want to run cross bar style handlebars instead of the original fat bar.

Cheers.

Might be cheaper & easier to buy some braced type fat bars? Renthal twin wall type(but cheaper!)

Not sure I understand that... I'm after clamps which I can fit a std 7/8" cross bar. I'm taking a fat bar out

Just use some 7/8" - 1 1/8" converters.
They're only about $10.

Sounds like an idea. Can you trust these? Isn't it just something else to go wrong? Like bars not staying in place?

Ahh I thought you just wanted to run a braced type bar(not necessarily 7/8) so thought buying new bars might be cheaper than a new clamp. Twinwalls(& some other brand's braced bars) are 1 1/8" aren't they?

Anyway just do what nutty said.

Yeah, thanks guys. I ended-up buying bar risers that can have the height customised. Will see how that goes. Cheers

Certainly are 1 1/8" bars available with a cross bar however if you must have 7/8" bars use Honda CR mounts and bolts or copies.
