Bar FAQs

The most commonly asked questions about Flexx Handlebars

Will the Flexx Handlebar work with steering dampers?

Yes, the Flexx Handlebar will work with steering stabilizers from all manufactures. To be able to use an over the bar stabilizer with Flexx Handlebars you need to replace the straight crossbars with steering damper crossbars. For new orders your bars can be built with damper crossbars at no extra charge. If you are an existing Flexx Handlebar rider and need to order damper crossbars please call or email us 

 

What handguard options do you have for the Flexx Handlebar?

There are several handguard options available. Our Simple Solution Hand Guards are the no hassle, easy to bolt-on solution that takes the frustration out of mounting guards. We also offer our Handguard Hitch which is an external mount that bolts to the pivot pin and allows you to use most brands of wrap around handguards. 

Do any other handguard systems work on Flexx Handlebars?

Flexx Handlebars will accept any handle mounted "flag" or roost deflection guard given you have enough handle room. Most Flexx Handlebar riders have plenty of room as Flexx Handlebars offer 9" of handle room while a traditional bar only offers 8". Handguards that mount off the bar mount or triple clamp will also work with Flexx Handlebars if set up so the handguard will pivot on a shoulder bolt. Please email or call if you have further handguard mounting questions.

How often do they need serviced?

Flexx Handlbars purchased after July 2010 are maintenance free. If you purchased Flexx Handlebars after July 2010, you do not need to service your bars at all. The current generation of Flexx Handlebars utilize a fiber bushing to prevent the need for any service or maintenance. To check to make sure you have the newer version, quickly remove your crossbars and look for the bushing encompassing the pivot pin.

Flexx Handlebars pre-July 2010 require regular maintenance. If you're like most people and use a pressure washer to clean your bike or ATV regularly, the Flexx Handlebar pivot pins should routinely checked for proper articulation and serviced if needed. We also offer a free service through our Factory Freshprogram. Also note, lack of maintenance to the pivot is not a cause for warranty.
