    '96 XP 800: Aftermarket handlebars and finger throttle?

    Hello, I am looking to buy aftermarket bars and a finger throttle. I'd LIKE to keep it under $100, if possible. Was thinking about Renthal fatbars with adapter/risers. Are guys using an ATV bend? Motocross bend? Also, what finger throttle? Can you use a BMX shorty brake lever, or is it way better to use a SeaDoo specific throttle lever?

    Thanks so so much for the help!

    I've used shorty BMX levers in the past. There is generally some modification involved as the angle of pull is wrong, better off here buying a PWC lever. On the bars I would think any 7/8 bar should work but the uncovered stock steering head is sort of unsightly.

    Yep I ran just bars for a bit and it wasn't any different than the stock bars except the finger throttle. Once I went full UMI I saw the light!
