Well I got her buttoned all back up and ready to ride. Snugged everything up and took a little test ride around the yard. Liked the new bars and everything but decided I hate standard hand guard attachments. I was about to not install them and buy some triple clamp mounted ones and be done with it but decided I'd just get those next time I need to adjust these. The new bars are YZ bend Tusk Chubs with the Tusk universal big bar clamps. It's not all that pretty but it works. I'll edit and throw in some pictures tomorrow night but I have an early morning for a Muster Duty almost 2 hours away. I trimmed the ends of the bars down 9/16" on each side and the overall length of the bars measured today before install was 30.625". The plan of dropping the standard 31.6" length down 1/2" on each side worked out fairly well. The Spider Grips SLX grips seemed pretty comfy too. Three to 4 hours of riding tomorrow should give me a better feel but I'm liking it so far.
