Lyons Handlebar Mounts

Ronnie Lyons made up this mount with the help of the local machine shop. There are no plans for production but it does show what can be done if you're determined enough.

The mount is a piece that I have made at a machine shop in Boise, on do it on an "as needed" basis. The last one I had made was $130, and then I had to find handlebar clamps for it. I tried to get a set from an SV650 through Ron Ayers, but there are several pieces to each complete "clamp" and some were in stock, some had to be backordered, etc. I wasn't a pleasant experience.

All said and done, it was almost $220 by the time I had the base made, added the clamps, had it powder coated and got the two silver hole plugs from GenMar.

Another alternative is to buy the ready made handlebar adapter from Storz ($130?) which comes in black and ready to accept a handlebar. The only thing it doesn't do is enclose the two preload adjusters on top of the forks. That's the main reason I made mine.

Make sure to buy a good handlebar from a company like Flanders. I became a believer in their quality once I compared them and saw the difference.
