So as promised the bars are on and feel much better my body position is in a much better position I can't believe how it does actually take the weight of your wrists and the numbing seat is a thing of the past thanks all for the advice

Are these lower than stock? I have been trying to figure out what bar I could get that would be higher, I like being upright kinda like dirt bike style. Though I don't know how far the cables would let you come up.

Slightly lower than stock yes but it's still a upright riding position. I changed them because the seat was killing me and read on here swapping the bars out made a big difference which I can confirm is 100% correct I've messed with cables on my last bike as I fitted higher sweep bars never again

Yea I don't want to mess with the cables. The seat I have gotten used to and I don't drive super far and still have a corbin gunfighter if I do take a long ride. Now what bothers me more is my wrists, throttle hand starts going numb.
