When I purchased my Scout last year, I asked for the reduced reach handlebars.
These were fine for a while but as the arthritis gets worse in my elbow and wrist, I found the bars uncomfortable.
My Suzuki Boulevard handlebars are perfect for riding so I decided to search for alternative bars.
I was lucky enough to visit the Sydney showroom one Saturday when a new Scout was ready to be picked up by it's new owner. It had the Beachbars installed and I found that they were similar to my Boulevard bars.
So I ordered a set from PartShark and installed them last Saturday. Exactly what I needed.
The photo shows the difference. Top is reduced reach.

Thanks for the comparison photos above, I hope I have made the right choice choosing the reduced reach bars on my new Scout due soon but at least it is good to see that other comfortable options do work.

Thanks Fatscout. Being a young bloke, you shouldn't have any problems with your reduced reach bars. ðŸ˜Ž

Hey Tezza,
was so close to buying those same bars myself, choice can be limited with the 1' 7/8' difference at the grips. Was fifty fifty and ended up with the klock worx am sure would be happy with either prefer that more forward riding style.

I popped the beach bars on mine with Kuryakin Iso 1" grips. They work a treat. ðŸ˜ƒ

Tux, I have the Kuryakin Iso grips on my Boulevard but installed Arlen Ness grips on my Scout. Something different

Matt, it was almost the same as the Boulevard. A lot more comfortable for the wrist and elbow.

Evening riders, anyone fitted a set of beach bars to their scout? I’m just thinking about it and just want some feed back on them.

How much did the bars cost from partshark and did you have to buy new cables and brake lines?
