I can't believe you'v only tried it the once and have written the bars off :idunno:

You would soon learn how good they can be if you tried it a few more times, and maybe with a bit more of an open mind than you have at present..

what exactly are the differences between dirty bars, flat bars, and the stock bars?

Well it depends on how the conversation is going.

Drity bars in general are bars on a clipon bike.

Other ways to see it.
Dirty bars are something like Moose bars that are commonly used. Among other brands and are OEM for certain bikes like a speed triple.

Drag bars are commonly flat with little curve or "pull back"

Not sure on standard bars. I guess something like old GS, CB type stuff would be standard, but its a loose term at best.

Really when looking at bars you need to know what diameter the bar is 7/8 or 1in are probably the most common. Then you get the width, raise, and pull back to consider. You want to go find the biggest selection of choices for a bike. Start looking at bars. Then you also need to take into effect the height and angle of the triple and risers.

I started with dirty bars, and didnt care for the feel, and happened to ride with an fz1 and looked at the risers and measured and decided I wanted to try a set like the fz setup. Worked perfect for my taste and thats the main thing. What your comfy with and at 20-30 bucks its pretty easy to try different bars.

what's wrong with the stock setup? if you're not going for a street fighter i mean. if going SF i heard dirty bars are best. I was just wondering what all the hype was about.

Riding position for me.
I like riding, but getting to the point riding a crunched over all freaking day has gotten old. Only naked bikes worth having, I can have 3 or 4 bikes for less. Take a older gen race bike, build it to ride, and go. Good motor, suspension. Buy something like a fz6 or similar for what 6-7 grand.

Ive got 2k in my bike currently after selling all the pieces I didnt need. This is my first go so im reading and learning.

I find stock equipment of a bone stock "vintage" sportbike, like my 94 CBR900rr, is much more comfortable than the newer bikes. However, my VTX 1800 is much more comfortable than it but is twice as heavy. It's ok, but kind of a b-word to drive in town. The cbr is easier in town, but I doubt I'd put 1500 miles on it in a weekend. I'm not sure that bar height, or position on any sportbike is going to solve that issue. Just my two cents.
