This thing makes a huge difference. I enjoy this bike 100% more with these bars than without. Before this, I couldn't have imagined riding this bike more than one hour (cramping, numbed hands and wrists and a sore neck). I have recently been riding this bike 12 hours at a time!!! Best of all, it seems to make the bike ride better both in-town and on the highway.
Quality is phenomenal. It is a well machined chunk of aluminum. This also shaves a little weight from the stock bars. Plus, it fits my throttlemeister throttle lock!!!
Installation is fairly straightforward. It has pretty good instructions. However, it did take me a good 1 1/2 hours. You have to remove the old handles and switches, partially disassemble the switches and put it all back together. I also had to buy a very small and long star driver to get one screw out of the right hand switch.
Well worth the effort.
These things also don't change the way your bike looks. Some of the taller handlebars from other manufacturers do look kind of funny. These blend right in and look stock and like sport-bike handlebars should. I installed it and have forgotten that they are aftermarket (except that I am much much more comfortable).
