    I think the gold fat bars is the norm.

    As the other have said gold bars on Gen 2 bikes
    yours maybe early V4 bars which I were silver in colour or a renthal/pro taper aftermarket fit.

    Actually 'Handel bars' are always black... and are written on music 'manuscript' paper! Arf arf. .

    If I may make a man an offender for a typo!
    - Although I note Jack did spell it right in his first post, so it's just the thread title that merits a poke! 😀
    - And, 'yes', I've made plenty of tipos too... Not that darned 'autocorrection' helps much!

    My 2007 R had gold bars , previous owner swapped them for silver v4 bars as the slight difference in shape he considered better, I've left them on.

    Worth sitting on a bike with gold bars when you get an opportunity! You never know... you might find your silver bars improve your riding position and you like them better. If not, you could always change them back.
