New handlebars!

Swapped out the stock clipons for some low bars.
Much better riding position for my frame (6'4")
I took the top triple and tossed it in the tumble machine at work for a little hammered finish. Also picked out the Honda logo and cleaned it up as well.

Next on the list is new front brake lines because they are way too tight for comfort. Clutch is fine and all the wires are fine minus the horn thats getting a 3" or so extension tonight.

Where can I get SS braided lines?

I love my bars too. I mounted them similar to yours. I managed to fit 1 1/8" fat bars though.

I bought HEL ss braided lines. I got 4" longer than stock and that was a bit too long. 3" would def be long enough and 2" would probably do it too.

Galfer will make any length you like and it's only a few bucks more than the stock lengths.

Coremoto looks real nice and the price isn't bad.
Guess its time to save up those pennies and get some lines ordered. 2" longer should be more than enough.
