There are a variety of off road motorbike handlebars available nowadays in a wide range of models and styles. For motocross and enduro riders, the size options are of either 7/8 standard sized handlebar, or an oversized 1 1/8 bar. Most stock dirt bike bar mounts accommodate the traditional 7/8 size, where the 7/8 refers to the diameter of the handlebar tube, and more precisely the diameter at the point where they handlebar attaches to the mounting clamps. These 7/8 bars will often, if not always, feature a cross bar to ensure adequate strength and restrict any unwanted flex from the bars when putting your motorbike through it's paces. The other option are those that fall into the 1 1/8 size - these are also referred to as fat bars or tapered bars. These models have a larger 1 1/8 clamping diameter, that can provide a stiffer bar without a cross bar being required. These oversized bars still feature the same 7/8 diameter at the outer extremities of the handlebar, allowing the same grips, clutch levers, master cylinders and hand controls to be utilized. Whichever size is currently in place, to allow the alternate bar option to be run, it may require the addition of adjuster sleeves, changing of the bar mounts or the installation of new triple clamps. The style that a rider chooses to run comes down to a multitude of factors, but more often than may be decided by what will fit your existing setup.
