Some of the replacement handlebars I found are not knurled. Anyone have non knurled bars that hold tightly? I have risers from an 1800 vtx coming with the one piece top clamp.

Knurled is nice but, if the bars are properly sized the degree of clamping force exerted by correctly torqueing the clamps will prevent them from moving. An exception might be tall ape hangers which offer a ton of rotational force at the clamp.

Be sure your knurled bars are made for metric bikes and not Harley. The spacing is much wider on metric bikes and the knurled areas will not hit the clamps and show between the clamps
