What are the drag bar specs for Shadow Phantoms?

I'm looking to get a new set of bars and I'd like to keep the style of the one-piece pullback drag bars on my Shadow Phantom.

What are the specs on the factory bars?
Namely, the diameter, rise, and pullback...

Thanks.

Stock Motorcycle Handlebar Measurements

Doesn't have R or PB. Diameter is 1". Here is how you can measure for yourself though:

I'm curious though...why would you get new bars that are the same style as the bars that are already on your bike?

hey - thanks for the response.

I'm actually looking for the bars to be the same EXCEPT higher...

I want them more shoulder-height

Scootworks makes 2" risers for the phantom. They are hit or miss when it comes to timely shipments though. Some people wait 3 days, some wait 3 weeks.

Thanks Dcocch for the info

So when you talk about 2" risers, I assume that's 2 inches higher THAN STOCK?

Also, if it's just the risers, I'd have to add a separate set of handlebars correct?

**edit: oh snap - just saw this. Thanks for the source Dcocch

They bolt on to the bottom of the stock welded-on risers. They are really riser-extensions since our bars have built-in risers on the 1-piece bars.

Gotcha. I was sitting on my bike eyeballing where my grip would end up. I like the height but inevitably the bars would also get closer to me due the angle...
Still on the fence but I think for that price it's worth a shot.

I put them on my phantom last week. They were quite comfortable for me -- I'm 5'7". My partner who is taller than me had been complaining about handlebar position when she road my bike, and much prefers the new handle bar position.

After I did the install, I took a couple pics. It was night time and in the garage, so they aren't great.

The clutch cable was barely long enough -- but it was long enough. If it was a half inch shorter it would not have been. There was extra wiring stashed in headlight that made the wiring have plenty of slack.

On the front view, you can see them installed. They are the thicker black parts right above where the handle bars hook in to the grey bar.

Side View:



Also, these pictures make me want to find black rear view mirrors and clear turn signals even more.
