    87 650 sx

    New guy to the stand up world here,
    I just recently purchased a 87 650sx and have a few questions for you guys.
    1) is it possible to do a wider bar set up?
    2) when installing the hydro turf would you just do the base of the ski or the side pads as well? I believe what is on it now is stock it is a black padded side with 3 screw holes on top.
    3) are there cons to running the oil block off plate?
    4) if I do upgrade the bars do I need all new cables and electric too?


    Thanks for your time

    1. Yes, any non straight 7/8 standup bars will fit.
    2. If the sides are in good shape, I would just do the tray.
    3. Only con is you need to mix oil, so no gas and go at marinas and such. Otherwise its highly recommended.
    4. Nope, everything should have enough slack to move over.

    is it possible to do a straight bar? I am from a moto cross background and think the straight bar would be a better feel for me.
    What does the aftermarket handle pole spring help?

    Yea blowsion has a zero degree bar. That and a set of grips and you'd be good.

    I personally like the jettrim pads, they look fantastic and are a better value for the money in my opinion. I have a build with pics in the individual builds section, you can search by my user name.
