Default Narrow bars

Thinking of putting narrow bars on my wife's gen 4. The reason is it seem like she is jut reaching to far and would like to try a shorts set but I have a few questions.

People that have changed them out what brand and model are have you found that you like?

How narrow is to narrow? I mean some point you would lose most of your leverage.

At what width did the ride become uncomfortably narrow?

Thank you
Kyle

Great post, I've often wondered how people can blindly pick a handlebar setup without trying it first. I think I could likely benefit from a narrower bar as well but don't know where to begin.

I seem to always hit trees with the last two inches on each side so I've wondered about this I'm 6,0 so I don't wanna loose any leverage tho.

Before committing to a bar, move your controls inward and try it. You can remove the grips and cut the ends off the bar with a hack saw or pipe cutter. The biggest obstacle I see is moving the grip heaters successfully.

Did this on mountain bikes all the time.

Will have to move the controls in a bit and give it a try. I really don't want to cut the stock bars down. Would rather buy an aftermarket set cut them down.

Removing the grips and hand warms are easy. I would have more of a problem cutting to much off the end of $1XX.00set set of bars.

The Dan Adams Fly bars have cut marks on them so it’s easy to cut correctly and test out dif lengths standing on the sled. The rise is wrong for most Doos tho unless you get a short riser. I used them on a Pro and a Cat, cut an 1 1/8” off the Pro set(steering effort on the Cat was so high I wanted longer bars lol) and it was a pretty dramatic difference. Maybe start at an inch.

If I were going narrower I'd start with a flat aftermarket bar without hooks. No sense getting hooks if you're going to cut them off. You'll still have enough flat area to mount controls after trimming this way too. You might have to go to a taller riser to compensate for the flat bar profile though. Grab the bars where they feel most comfortable, mark, and cut.

Last three sled I have taken at least an inch off the stock bars, makes reaching the levers/throttle on a side hill easier.
