Question regarding motorcycles
Posted in the Utica Forum

I just bought a Yamaha FZR600.I have only ridden a bike like this a few times and so far IMO crotchrockets are uncomfortable as can be, but even so the deal on this bike was too good to pass up.
So the question is, is it possible to change out the handlebars on it and replace them with regular motorcycle handlebars that curve back towards you so you can sit up straight?
I know physically you could do it, but what I mean is would it be able to steer correctly and everything else with a different handlebar setup?
I dont care too much if it looks goofy, as long as it works and makes it more comfortable.

Thanks, its gonna be a few weeks anyway before I get them switched if I do, so I have some time to see if it gets better.

look first into handlebar risers for the FZR 600. Simple and comparatively inexpensive bolt-ons elevate the bars from their stock position. with that done, you can also rotate the bars higher up by changing the position of the brake and clutch hand controls.
I wouldn't even think about using cruiser style i.e. Harley bars on a bike like that. not sure what would happen but it doesn't sound good. some guys use Renthal or other brand dirt bike bars for a more straight-up ride on their sportbikes.
but you need to validate that a certain set of bars fit on your bike, and the margins can be small. new bars are not a simple swap-out. which is why risers are so popular. good luck & ride safe.
