Does anyone know if the stock handlebar part number 56111-17G10 is for the chrome or black version? I have the chrome now and want to change to the black.

I'd assume it's chrome. I didn't think they ever came with black bars.

Check out Bikemaster for similar black bars at a much lower price. I have black Daytona bars on my 2nd Gen, and they have a much more comfortable pullback than the stock bar and are as high as you can go without extending the brake lines.

I put black Superbike bar on a 1st Gen I had, and it was similar in height to the original but also more comfortable for me.

I just checked out the Daytona bar. The specs say it's 824mm wide. That's 32.5". The spec on the stock 2nd Gen SV bar is 26". That's quite a bit wider. I'd go to 28" at the most for me.

Too long is not an issue as you can trim to size. Too short and your are screwed.

I cut mine down quite a bit - but I didn't think they came that much wider than stock.

I almost cut too much, as the clamps for the levers are just about on the bend of the bar Another 1/4" and I would have had problems - so you need to go slow and pay attention to the controls when trimming the bars.

I'll see if I can put my hands on the stock bars and check how wide they are, but 26" seems too narrow.

I may just try to paint them black. I know chrome is tricky to paint but maybe if I sand them down enough.

Chrome is very hard, and sanding doesn't work well. We media blast chrome parts with a fairly soft, but sharp, media to give it a frosted appearance before cleaning and powder coating.

Paint over sanded chrome isn't going to hold up well.

You are way ahead just buying a BikeMaster bar. They aren't expensive and the finish is very durable.

I can do all my own work and powder coating for free, and I wouldn't bother.
