[QUOTE=supershaft;20308658] It's reducing us to the likes of the typical Harley rider IMO and that's a sorry state of affairs IMO.

I couldn't agree with you more supershaft.

I need to tell you what really pisses me off though is inmates who are unable to have a discussion about the contents of this thread without asking about what levels of brain injury or other personal insults that can be thrown into the mix.

Airheads is about Airheads,if you want to get personal send a PM or use Yo Mamma or Head Explody.I have been reading ss's contributions for as long as he's been writing them and i have picked up some usefull info plus some stuff that has given me a good chuckle even if that wasn't his intention.Keep up the good work supershaft.

I rest my case.

John

I occasionally get PM's and greetings in person something like your post but rarely here on the forum. Thanks Velocipede!

Believe it or not, I actually am going for a laugh on a semi-regular basis. Maybe just a chuckle is a better way to put it. Not that many people get it since only a handful has mentioned my most often between the lines humor.

Thanks again!

Just pondering the same thing with my cafe project. I want the rear sets but may have to go for the less radical bars.

An alternative might be the very flat, very short, /5 euro bars? But you might need to check to see if they are wide enough to take a Hydraulic MC?

I fitted a pair of those on my 100/7 to get the master cylinder behind the S fairing. I was thinking of trying a set of the high clip ons. Like these

be careful about the tarozzi clip-ons. I got the low-rise set from Fast from the Past but i find that they won't go into the positions i want them to because of tank clearance and interference with my Toaster Tan top brace and some of the cables once you put the controls and handgrips on. If i had to do it again, i'd buy the standard version.

K1 bars are the solution concerning this dilemma for me. I do wish they came in chrome but . . . . Someone reported the /2 sidecar bars (which ARE chrome) being the same bend but I have had both and I don't think they are.

Same bend as what? Each other? I don't think they are. I think the mystic has higher and wider bend to the bars and I think they are in total length wider bars than the LS. LS bars are basically the one inch rise euro bars (I have always called them /2 euro's) painted black. K1 bars are different yet again. Much wider and much more angled back than LS bars, for instance.
