    Reminds me of checking into the Alluvian in Greenwood, MS with the wife one time. We got some funny looks rolling into that hotel ATGATT:huh.

    What handlebar are you using? That bend looks just about right. I'm on my third and still not 100% happy with it.

    Was gonna ask same question about bars. They really are a visible change, aren't they? :)

    ProTaper Henry/Reed bend. It's not an easy install - a narrow bar that required widening via tig welding alu bar ends. Definitely worth the effort - much better ergos for me.

    Thanks!

    I'm rally good at bolting stuff on and drilling some holes. TIG welding, not so much...:D

    I TIG weld about everyday... What wall tube did you use on the PT bars ? What insert did you use for the end bar bolts ? I had to machine a set for a customer once but dont really want to do that again.. Bars look great, im sure they are a better feel.. Good job ! Thanks

    I can't take credit for the work - just that I was determined to make the PT bars work 'cause I couldn't stand the OEM ergos. The guy who got the job done is quite the artiste but shares your sentiments about never wanting to do it again.

    I Love this bike and feel so at home on it even in situations I was far less comfortable on the xt660z.

    Wow, Israel looks just like SoCal. What kind of engine guard combo is that?

    I used the basic Yamaha guards and the SW Motech together and welded steel bars between them. Works fine and has taken care of the bike on too many occasions. just a hassle when you need to get the side pannels off
