    What light for 1 1/4 inch bars?

    My bars are 1 1/4" at the stem. They taper down to 7/8 inch toward the grips but they also bend back so a light out there would point into the ditch.

    Is there a clamp that will fit 1 1/2" bars? Am I stuck with the rubber strap mounts?

    Most clamps have shims so they work for both bar sizes. Some lights have multiple mounting options. It depends on your light. You might be able to use this Action-LED-Lights ? Quick Release Mount for Gemini Lights

    Some people make DIY mounts because they don't like the rubber bands. I think the rubber bands work well esp when used with friction tape.

    Thanks. I just ordered an MT-201 mount from Action LED Lights so I can use a normal light. Great solution.
