Handlebar position

  1. There is no right or wrong setup when adjusting your handle bars for MX or Enduro riding, it all comes down to personal preference. In this episode Wade takes us through the process...

    Thanks a lot I was looking for something like that.

    I changed my stock handlebar for a Zeta one on my KLX, It is pretty large and low. I put it on a "default" position, but something is wrong. When I drive uphill (even slightly) I just can't stand, I fell like I have to pull very hard on the bars and is almost impossible to stand for more than 20-30 seconds. Downhill is fine and sitting I feel good too. I recon it may be too much in the front, but I don't have much experience with this kind of things.
    It may as well come from the bar being large or too low.
    If you had some experience with different configuration, what do think?

    For those who are interested, I'll post my own answer (found out this weekend).
    Not only was it the handlebar (moved it slightly to the front), but I think it was the lowering-links kit I put on the bike.

    I put the original links back on the bike and it feels like a different bike. I highly discourage anyone who wants to lower the klx250, it totally changes the position!

    Btw got lower links for sale if anyone is still interested ;)
