Hi my Transalp Xl650 V6 needs new handlebars after a bit of an argument with the road. It has 20mm bars. Can you fit 22mm bars as they are far more commonand cheaper?

Am I missing something, I thought pretty much all std bars are 22mm or 7/8"
Heated grips are that size & fit the Alp and all other bikes that I've owned.

Hi I measured the bars on my XL650V6 and they measure 20mm. I bought the bike second hand but they look standard?

Used a vernier guage but will double check the measurement. Only Honda handlebars at 20mm I can find online are for bow 125cc.

Mine are 22mm, too. Seem to be pretty universal (also on my VStrom,for example), and the standard for heated grips, bar risers etc. I suspect it's an old standard of 7/8 inch, converted to metric.
