with the oversized bars is there like a combo thing that comes with dash key mount and bars? if there is would all my stock handle grips and all those things bolt right up to it? i noticed with the stock dash kit it doesn't have a spot for a key..

How do you like the X-bar? is it that much different than stock?

I only had about 2 hours of ride time on the stock bars so it's hard to compare. I am 6' 3" and went with the high bend plus the barclamp has a bit of rise, much more natural in a stand up position now.

yeah i'm 6'3" also i think the rise from it will feel a little better also.. usually when i'm standing up i'm bent over trying to grip the bars with the stock ones really gets on my nerves slouching over like that :( guess i'll find out monday when they get here 8)

I have the 1-1/8" X-bars (in black) and the matching dashboard. This is a VERY sweet setup which I highly recommend. I'm 6-0 and am fine with the std. bend, but I don't know the diff either!

Nice pics :thumbsup: Is the steering stem the oem or aftermarket? Is this the cr hi? Do you have problem with the tank gas on a full turn? Is higher or lower than the oem handlebar? Too many questions...... :unsure:

Stock stem, Trailtech clamp, and high bend X-bars. Not even close to the tank cover.
