Handlebar position 310 R

Hello to all , i'm new to the forum but have been following it for a while . Has anybody changed the position of the handlebar on their bike ? As in moved it closer to the rider so it is at less of an angle so you don't have to lean forward as much . If so has this affected the handling? Any response would be much appreciated thank you .

Welcome,
To answer your question, not on this motorcycle yet.
But on many others. There is usually not handling differences as
you are only changing the ergonomics, unless of course you
do a radical change in seating position as well. Then
there will be a balance difference. Try doing an adjustment of the bars,
keeping in mind the control cable clearances are still good. Free from
binding, and the bar bolts are good and tight. Experiment with
different positions, maybe bar risers would be something to consider too.
Cheers!

I have seen both straight risers and setback risers for the G310R advertised.
Even straight risers will bring the bars towards you a bit due to the angle, the setback risers will move the bars backwards as well as upwards.

On my GS, I've set forward the handlebar by 2 cm and wait for new clamps from RR Products to rise it by 2 or 3 cm. I'm 1m85 height, that's why

SW-Motech list risers but as BMW mounts are similar to Honda ones, you will probably be able to get cheaper ones on the internet. There are quite a few different options - just do a search for handlebar risers.

I switched out the standard bar to a ProTaper Yamaha Mini profile. It is the same bar I have on my Grom. It is the same width as the factory unit, yet the angle at the grips is much flatter. For my 152cm daughter, it fits her quite well.

Give a man a milling machine, a lathe, and other dangerous tools and he shall create the greatest pile of useless chips ever conceived.
