Hey all,

So Liberty Yam definitely makes some mean looking bikes, and well I just love how aggressive this take of the SCR is.

Some things I'm interested in finding out are the difficulty levels for replacing handlebars and turn signals. Also, if anyone can identify the tail light used on this bike. I've done multiple searches for a similar one from Yamaha, but nothing exactly like it is showing up.

Was also curious if anyone has any thoughts on the most comfortable handlebar setup for 1hr or longer commutes? Maybe something like the Renthal Street bar would good enough for that?

Thanks for any opinions. Love my SCR as it is fully stock, but definitely feeling like making some changes in the next few months.

The handle bar seems more intimidating than it actually is. Disconnect the clutch lever, pull the clutch lever and cable through the housing mount, undo two little bolts on each switch housing with a metric allen wrench. Spray a little hairspray or WD40 around the grips and peel/twist them off. Undo the four bolts that hold the bar to the top of the tree and you're officially half way done. Put the new bar on, tighten the front two bolts all the way down, adjust the angle of the bars to where you want, tighten down the back two bolts real firm with a socket wrench. The brackets won't go down all the way flush, don't freak out, everything's fine. When you get the switches back on you will see little plastic nubs. You can mark the bars where they make contact and use a regular power drill to drill little holes for them to sit in. Three holes total if I remember right. Tighten everything back down and you're done.

Thanks! Think right now my plan of attack will be turn signals (front/rear), then plate relocation (not sure if I want to mount plate to remaining fender, or side), then handlebars. After that, aside from possibly a slip-on, everything will be mostly cosmetic (seat, paint, grips).
