    Has anyone replaced OEM bars with aftermarket for improved arm position on the 650 twin?

    The position of the hands whether bars are rolled up slightly or "as delivered" seems to want to tuck the elbows in and also causes pressure on the inside of my wife's hands at the thumb/pointer finger when she rides. Been this way for 3 years and now i need to start listening to her:lol3. She is a good rider with proper body positioning by most accounts and never has issue on her Super Sherpa (or even my 12GS when I spoil her)

    Currently the bars are mounted in BMW risers and height wise are great so perhaps the bend is the issue???
