Lower bars for F700GS?

Well I had assumed that my black ice wipeout 4 months ago simply knocked my bars out of alignment but alas they are bent...

Dealer is quoting $189 for new bars and $85 for labor if I want them replaced but I'd like to find a way to lower the bars to better match the low seat I have installed. If lower bars aren't available I might simply stick with the bars I have now (they're only slightly bent a little but it's noticeable while riding) or have the new bars rotated back a bit to get them lower.

Just curious if anyone had any experience or knowledge that may help with my conundrum.

Hardly seems like they are charging you enough ...
I would have guessed they would have wanted more $$$

You might want to give Renthal a call ... I'm told that their "Desert/Vintage/High" 7/8 bar is nearly identical to the stock F650GS twin bar ... and you could negotiate from there...
