    Aftermarket handlebars

    Hi everyone!
    I have a 2014 cb1000r and I'm trying to get rid of as much gold as possible. I wanted to know if anyone out there has found a same as OE bar but black in color. Closest thing I came across was driven racing's meteor bars but the inside diameter of the bars will not accept the OE bar ends, weights, clips( retainers). I know painting is an option but I also know it wont be long until the paint starts to chip and flake off and just wont last.
    Any info or ideas are welcomed!
    Thanks

    Motorcycle bars are tricky... I bought a pair of stocks and had them powdercoated. That's the same as what factory would be.

    ^^ If you like the current bars, that's what I'd do. I've spent enough time messing with new bars on mountain bikes to know that even a degree of sweep and bend makes a big difference. Getting it wrong is an expensive and time consuming exercise.

    That's a thought that's crossed my mind. But I'm not trying to blow an excessive amount of money on handlebars. Sub $100 dollars for bars that are the same height, rise, sweep and width of and most importantly inside diameter to accept OE bar internals but black in color seems frugally more logical. Hence, why I asked if anyone had found bars not different options on how to make my bars black.

    The CB1000R is not a wildly popular bike, therefore aftermarket is slim compared to other bikes. That's reason for the replies you have. Not a lot of plug and play options out there for us. That being said, and your comment, powder coating stock bars should be less than $100.
