    Riva handle bar

    Does anybody know if the Riva handlebar fits the OEM steering system??? I am asking in order to get it since you can apply the ODI grips and fits in the hands perfect!

    I did a handlebar swap on my GP1300r. Lots of work, drilling, etc to modify the bars to fit and the storage cover didn't fit after cause the bars were bigger. Then I realized all I had to do after all that work was powdercoat the factory handlebar black for $20 and install the crossbar with pad from the protaper that you can get on eBay for $10. Looks exactly like the Protaper and fits everything perfect cause it's the OEM bar. Tossed the protaper in the dumpster.

    Any 7/8ths bars will fit non icontrol skis. I wnt with fly racing bars for $20 they fit perfect and feel great.

    the riva bar are a direct replacement for the 2012 plus RXP-X, you need the whole system due to the seadoo design

    But I would recommend buying the tool to remove the tubes from the original bars, that bit is a pain in the ass

    ODI make grips to fit anything. Why are you changing bars for grips?

    Nothing is stopping you from taking the OEM off and putting ODI on.

    because the stock grips are too fat and in racing or re riding the hands are getting tired! I know the odi grips fit in the stock bar but they are too long. There was a guy here in the forum that did extensions for the stock bar but not any more. Gus has used them.

    I was thinking of putting the riva bar in order the length of the grips to fit perfect
