New Pro Taper Bars

Quick pic of my new Pro Taper bars. I didn't trim any off of them. It was a little easier than I thought to install, but can see if you don't take your time it could be a waste of money. I have some other things coming and will post pics when I get everything on and clean her up. I did drill locator holes for my controls and I changed the angle of the clutch and front brake. I angled them down a little more from stock location. Feels more comfortable when riding.

A longer reach to the bars? If so, how much more?

added about 3/4 to 1". they are lower and wider keeps me out of the wind a little more and the extra length feels more comfortable when going thru the turns, I was able to adjust controls for a more comfortable feel when riding. I moved clutch and brake down for a more natural feel.

I just did this also but cut an inch off (#4 mark) so that they'd be stock width. Love them and much improved riding position for me.

There at least an inch wider than stock bars I did not measure. It also drops the bars 3/4 to inch lower than the stock bars. If your asking about price. they were $70.00.
