93 ZX7 newb handlebar question

Im in the process of a streetfighter conversion.. i would like to order bars and risers but i dont know if i need the 7/8 bar or the 1 1/8 bar cause the bikes not here for me to measure. I dont want to have any issues when i transfer the controls over so .....what size bar do i need? Any input is appreciated

So Ive come to the conclusion that the 1 1/8 bars are a tapered bar. They are 1 1/8 in the centre (thus requiring different riser size) and taper down to 7/8 on the handles which is the standard bar size.

btw-The fact that i had to answer my own thread is lame to say the least

Sorry you had to answer your own post but most metric bikes are the 7/8 bar
