Looks like DNA results confirmed that they found Harry. At least this gives some kind of closure to his family, but certainly not the kind anyone hoped for. Raising one for you tonight harry.

It's tough to tell from the photos, but do they stick out much farther than stock? Have you evaluated them for ease of dragability on corners?

I have a venhill 500a on my bike and it's great. Its a clone of a NLA magura model that was used on a lot of 90s ktms and other euro bikes. It's a single pull though so it requires a splitter.
