Standard Handlebar Width
« on: May 20, 2018, 05:02:35 pm »
  What is the width of the standard handlebars on a 2012 C14?  Outside edge of one grip, to the outside end of the other grip?

  I need to move a 2012 C14 this week.  I'd like to buy a Canyon Dancer to use.  They come in different sizes for different handlebar widths.  Just need someone to measure the width on C14 so I know which strap to buy.  Doesn't have to be exact.  It's either the strap for 28" and below, or the next size up I expect.

Please don’t use the canyon dancer tie downs on the handlebars. Our bars are cast aluminum and have been known to snap right off when using those ties.

Most of us use soft ties around the front upper triple tree. Some tie down straps come with a loop sewn into the long strap near the end that serves the same purpose. Just don't pinch any wires or hoses.

I used Canyon Dancers as "redundancy only" measure, should any of the fore/aft tie-downs slip or fail
This C14 was right off the showroom floor
