  • Technischer Überwachungsverein (Technical Inspection Association, or TüV) in Germany is an independent laboratory that tests the fatigue strength, manufacturing quality, and fitment for a wide range of consumer products, with special emphasis on automotive and motorcycle components and accessories. Biltwell handlebars and risers that have received TüV verification are among the strongest and most thoroughly well-tested motorcycle parts in the world.

    Form and Function

    Early chopper builders invented the 4-piece Z-bar to give their custom machines a cool look and a narrow profile. Our Zed bars continue this tradition, with a rugged 4130 chromoly twist. Available in 7/8- and 1-inch sizes, Zed is the narrowest model in our custom bar line. Their narrow width and comfortable backsweep make these bars perfect for compact stock bikes like H-D XLs and Yamaha XS650s, or on stripped-down bobbers and choppers. NOTE: because burrs can be present inside their welded joints, please DO NOT pull hand control wiring inside this model.

    Awesome bars

    Easy install, just had to tug the brake line a bit but well worth it!

    Installed these bars on my 2018 XL1200CX (Roadster). Although the bike is designed to be a cafe racer the stock HD bar position was uncomfortable on my wrists given the leaned forward rider triangle. The Zed bars were a much more comfortable option for me personally (5'11 / 195) Great fit and finish. Stock HD throttle cables fit with ample slack, however; a new brake line will be required on these bars if just replacing stock bars.

    I bought this for my Yamaha Roadstar Warrior to tighten up the width of my handlebars and for a more aggressive look. 11 Bolts off and on. Also fitted some Biltwell grips at the same time. Under an hour. No Cable adjustment needed (I might need to up my risers a couple inches). Now my RS Warrior has a Sport Bike type Handlebar, feels just like a crotch rocket. Took it back about 5 degrees and has a much better riding position in wind (I don't feel like a wind sock). Top notch quality and fit.

    Great bars, fit with no issues on my Yamaha Bolt. Looks good with the narrow profile of the bike. A bit narrower than I expected but it looks and feels good.
