i suspect that handlebar conversion will come with a multitude of headaches.
longer clutch, brake and accelerator cables may well be needed when raising bars by 80mm

Hmm, +80mm...  Sounds like the Crossrunner gets turned into a Crosschopper...   :017:  --sv

Interesting..there are 2 things about the CR I am not too happy about - first is the look fo the standard exhaust and second is the plastic shrouds around handlebar. This is an option to change the latter ..but I am not convinced it would be an improvement   :084:

I think they mean 80cm overall which would put them about the same height as standard bars

i agree on both points joe.  the only thing that goes in favour of the honda exhaust is it has a nice tone.

Not worth the cost if bars still same height.Never get heated grips off now without a problem.

I agree that there looks to be loads of difficulties in making the change - which is sad cos I wonder if the outcome would produce something akin to the Crosstourer bars - picture attached. If Honda could take that on baord maybe the bike would become a little bit more attractive. Wonder if CT bars would fit CR?

I would love a set of CT bars with the CT still attatched.If only it wasn't for my short legs  :006:
