Aftermarket Handlebars

So the 'tard is getting a once over at the shop today (finally, they've been busy).

I don't expect much has been damaged aside from the obvious cosmetic stuff and the handlebars / possible mounting bolts.

I'm looking at this as an opportunity to get some fancy aftermarket farkles. On that note, I didn't see much in the way to discussion around aftermarket bars. Seem's tapered bars are the primary option, though I know I can get renthals at the same diameter as stock.

My main question, is there anything Ducati specific I need to be aware of. On my old Honda 599 the stock bars had a hole drilled on the right hand side which lined up with a pin in the throttle so it wouldn't twist. This was a pain, and in retrospect I shouldn't have filed down the pin so much as drilled a small hole in the new bars. I'd like to avoid similar frustration with this bike.

Handlebars on the hyper will need to be notched out on the ends of the bar if you want to continue using the stock hand guards.

My vote is for the tapered bars with aftermarket clamps. There are holes to drill, but as with numerous past bikes, I've always just filed off the tabs on the controls. YMMV.

Definitely ditching the stock handguards. The bark busters storm hand guards look like a good option. More wind protection and a metal backbone. I filed the tabs on my Honda's controls and regretted it as I had to shim the clamp to keep it from twisting and even then could twist it if I was firm. Always worked fine but that bothered me a little. My only concern with drilling is getting the hole in the wrong orientation, but, measure twice cut once and whatnot...

Drill two or three holes in series then file between to make a slot: that way you can adjust the throttle position.
