Anyone used a Motolord chump handlebar set

Anyone used a Motolordd chump handlebar set?

They come with longer clutch cable and brake line. Shame you can't get extended wire sets.

Thinking of trying one, not sure which one yet.

The regular custom chump may leave more room for gear indicator on top with more arch to the the top bar and may be tilted back more for comfort,

The custom chump V2 looks better, but the top bar is straighter and don't know where the gear indicator will go or how far back it could be tilted.

As long as I still get excited to go for a ride, I'll be riding. In the end it may be a moped, but I'll still be riding.

+1 vote for V2. If you buy either of them though post pictures and leave a review please! I've been thinking about them for a while.

I will post a message if I get a chumps handlebars setup from Zeeds.

I don't know how to post photo's on a thread or I would have on other mods I've done.

I have the first version of these bars on my Rebel. No real complaints but a few things came up in the install I think you should consider before getting them.

Extension cables work just fine but I'm still on the hunt for some extended lines. The throttle cables had to be taken out of the triple clamp in order to reach. The bars can still turn either way without tightening up but it doesn't look as neat. Clutch cable reaches just fine as well but the original cable has a bend towards the end of it that prevents it from rubbing against the engine. Probably wear out a bit faster than they normally would but it seems to be holding up just fine.

Overall they look great, especially with the fairing that Motorlordd makes. I have a more upright position when riding now so am now much more comfortable. I think I've seen an option with Barnett Cables for extended lines for this generation of Rebels so I'm likely going to dig into that a bit more.

Hope this helps! Sorry if some of the pics came out sideways. I couldn't figure out how to adjust that.

Are the handlebars pre-drilled for the switch bodies to go on the bars, or did you have to drill the holes?

Any problems with the wires for the switches?


Are the bars almost straight or a pull back and slope down?


Still thinking of getting a pair, deciding on the first version or the V2. I need to get a more upright riding position.

No problem with the photo's, I don't even know how to attach them, so you did good.

As long as I still get excited to go for a ride, I'll be riding. In the end it may be a moped, but I'll still be riding.

Holes

You have to drill the holes, plus when installed the bar reduces the view of the clock a little, you are not able to see the indicator flash warning light on the clock.

Ordered the 8" custom chumps today.
Should be able to tilt back enough for a comfortable ride.
Can't ride leaning forward any more, hurts back, shoulders and neck.

Got the 8" Chumps yesterday.

I would NOT recommend buying these handle bars, they are out of square.


Laying front down on a bench, the left bar end is 4 1/2" off table and the right is 5 1/4" off the table.


Laying bar ends down, the handle bars wobble and the down tubes are not the same length from the bottom of the triple tree handle bar mount tube.


Since they are from Thailand it is not cost effective to return.


Only good thing to say is the holes are drilled for switch housing and lever mounting and there is a clutch cable and brake line extension.

Would be better off buying Biltwell or other brand chumps and finding cable and brake line extensions.

As long as I still get excited to go for a ride, I'll be riding. In the end it may be a moped, but I'll still be riding.

Never seen extended cables at this time. So we have to DIY the cables.
Or if exising ones are compatible , I will be happy to know which ones !
And about the brake extender and the ABS ? It's possible to buy bespoke brake extender but is there an incident to add 10 or 12" ?

Thank you

Did you have to bleed the brakes when installing the brake line extender? I’m going to do the install and was wondering if I would need any extra help or should I be able to complete the install by myself. Thanks!
