I was thinking about switching out the bars on my gen2. I was wondering if anyone has advice or experience with any particular brand? I looked at Dale Walker's set and they look good but it would be nice to hear from someone that has already made the swap.

I have the Dale Walker handlebars and I love them. I am 5' 8 and they work for me. I have to lean forward but that is what I like. But it will have to be what type of style you like to ride. Included a pic so you can take a look.

Thanks for the response I was starting to wonder if anyone had tried a bar swap. The picture of your bike is great those bars and mirrors look awesome. I like the idea of the bars being lower but was a little concerned about the reach as my arms are not all that long. Do you find this set up comfortable? Some of the sport bikes I have had put too much of my weight on my wrists making longer rides uncomfortable.

DBaker, I am 5"8 and I just rest on the tank with my elbow or my stomach. I myself love it. What I did with the stock was to lean forward on long rides and see if I would like it and I did. Which I like to lean forward and I like the dragbar look and feel. The factory bars was turned in to much for my wrist. I hope this helps, Let us know what you decide and take some pics of your max. Peace.

I had to install a 1" riser spacer to keep my cable hardware from hitting the cowling when the bars were at full turn.
