    GP1800 Riva steering stem and handlebar upgrade

    Looking at upgrading the steering because I think aftermarket steering looks smart, what are the benefits of it though as it's a lot of cash I could put to something else if there is no real benefit for recreational use apart from the visual appeal , cheers all.

    You can change the grips, which you can do on the stock handlebar with aftermarket ones, and can get wider handlebars. The turning can be adjusted to be more/less responsive than stock. But realistically, there is not a huge benefit to justify the cost but I got them anyway
