I've got the Black Rizoma conicals on mine with the 60mm risers as shown here:Just wondering, is the rizoma adapter needed to mount the rizoma 22mm conical bars to a 696, or will the stock clamps work fine? Any pics, or suggestions would be great. Thanks.

Made a big difference to my bike,much more comfortable to ride now.
If you want photos of them on my bike i'll get some photos for you.
I wish,no that photo is from the site I bought my parts through.Dude! You have a Multistrada? That's so awesome! How do you like it? I test rode one a few weeks ago (an 08 1100s) and felt that maybe something was wrong with it as it didn't rev very easily. It was completely stock (engine and performance wise) and had a lot of miles on it for an 08. Nonetheless, it was a great handling bike, and it rides so well. I'm such a fan of those bikes! They're so "different" looking, but they're just fun as hell to ride.
Anyway, regarding the rizoma bar and whatnot, did you also get the rizoma grips to match? I ordered some driven d3's and the look is the exact same as the rizoma grips. Are there any performance or fitting issues with the driven grips over the rizomas?
More pics of your multi would be great, I'm such a fan of those great bikes!
Well according to me and my bike,they do fit ,i've had them on there for over 5 months.FYI- according to Rizoma, the 42mm riser works on the M696 and the 60 does not
The Rizomas have a different bend than the standard bars,they are swept back further.Hi WhiteY66.
Please post some photo for me. I would like to change to the 60mm riser and keep the stock bar. I don't want to change the bar because it is so specific of Ducati. Do you think only the riser change could make it as comfortable as also changing the Rizoma bar?
No worries.i would be interested in the procedure.mostly about drilling
No real need to drill. The holes are there for consistency in the assembly process so that they all come off the line the same. They stay in place just fine without, so just use a dremel to remove the assembly tabs on the controls.i would be interested in the procedure.mostly about drilling
The LH control will turn on the bars if you remove the dowel.It may be there for assembly reasons,but it also keeps the control in place.The clamping force of the controls isn't enough to prevent them from moving.No real need to drill.

smart trick man...i had something else in mind..but i find your way easier...rizoma risers 60mm will be in my hands this week....fatbar i have,80 cm length....i am praying that everything will be ok with the cables length...i ll post photos when i am ready...........THANKs again for the tipNo worries.
I just wrapped some insulation tape on the area where the controls sit on the bars then screwed the controls lightly to the bars when I had them in the right position.This will leave an indentation in the tape where the locating dowels are.
Then remove the controls and centre punch in the center of the indentation.Make sure the drill size matches the locating dowel and that you only drill as deep as you need to,not right through.The less drilling the stronger the bars will be,then remove the tape and fit the controls.
Just make sure you have the bars in exactly the right position before you drill any holes and also check for clearance from the tank at full steering lock on both sides with your controls fitted on the tape.You can make small adjustments on your steering stops but just remember that this will affect you turning circle.
If you need any further info,just ask.
hi,i see that you have knowledge about parts and i'd like to ask you something because i have a ploblem...i order the conical fatbar with his adapters from a store here in Greece form my M696 and they gave me this part [riz-MA005B] handlebar and this part [riz-AZ405B] adapters.are they the right ones for the 696?or they gave me the wrong pairs and i should ask for part # is AZ402B and an other fatbar?the 22mm bars fit, the conical tapered bars need the adapter (they are fatter in the middle)
part # is AZ402B
