I had a fun day today!

I got to do something fun on the bike today. It took me a few hours (trying to be careful), but I got the stock risers installed, using my current Bikemaster Superbike bars, and put my Napoleon mirrors on. I like the difference in feel while riding, and really like the improved vision with the mirrors.

The process was interesting to me because I found the need to do a rough install so I could position the bars and cut the ends off. I did the left side first to make sure my thinking was sound :) I removed the grip on the left side first, cut a hole big enough for the mirror's rubber stub to slide through tightly. I think I installed the bars four times to check various geometry to make sure the controls didn't hit the tank and also have clearance for the fairing. I did take the fairing off for space to work.

Here's some pics.

Tank clearance

Riding my airhead is like eating chinese food . . . an hour later, I need to ride again.
