Nice looking bars that compliment the bike's wide and low stance. I used stock risers and drilled the bars for internal wiring. Stock throttle cables have to be routed behind the forks. The stock brake line barely fit. Overall installation with internal wiring took time with some planing and patience, but well worth it. I'm 5'8" and the bars reach me just fine (better than stock), but I would not go any wider because these bars already make tight slow turns tricky due to the 36" spread. Also, freeway speeds without a shield become tiring fast due to the wide hand position causing my body to catch a lot of wind. In retrospect, I would probably look into the Barons Star Bars as a compromise. If it wasn't for the cool factor of these bars, I'd say go with something not so wide for practicality.
