Biltwell Keystone Bars on R-Spec
« on: April 13, 2021, 07:43:56 am »
Hello all,

As of today i am officially the proud buyer of a Yamaha Bolt (it should be here in a couple of weeks).   :)

I am looking for information on some handlebar options and am a big fan of how the Biltwell Keystone bars look on the bolt.

Is anyone able to confirm these are compatible with the stock cables on the R-Spec with ABS?

I read on a previous forum that the options are limited due to the ABS cable length.

Any help here would be appreciated as i want to put these on as soon as the bike arrives.

I installed these bars on my base model Bolt. Thereís little to no difference between that and the R-Spec besides the suspension so I doubt there will be an issue. I was able to fit the bars on using the stock cables. Youíll just have to drill a small hole for both control housings so they sit flush on the bars. Youíll see what Iím talking about when you take it off the stock bars.
