Did you use the Part #25-0654 bars from MikesXS? If I'm measuring correctly the ones on the bike have about a 2" rise, and I'm not sure on the pullback. Width is 28" and I wouldn't mind a bit narrower, but that would crowd the switches and brake cylinder.
Sorry I missed this, yes, #25-0654 is what I used. You need an oil cooler with 1/2" ports, most are 3/8". The scavenge line is the one to cut, (goes to the TOP of the oil tank.)
Too much is just barely enough.....
