Looks great!
Still waiting for mine.

Question:
Why do you need longer bars?
Is it your preference, or the controls can't fit?

Controls on the throttle side would not fit with the short bar. It will not clear the gauge. My guess is, if it was relocated in the center, shorties would be ok.

Just received mine... the bar measures about 32.5cm from end to end... is that the same as yours?

Also, may I have more details regarding your cable routing? Neat!

Thanks! :)

*** edit
Checked out their website, looks like it is the long version (13.5 inch)

Will try out the fitting these few days

Installed mine... Keeping the stock routing for now...everything worked out well :)




And I like the fact that it is shorter than stock

I have ridden on mine (about 100 miles), feels natural as well. But then again, I changed to a mustang seat, and that pretty much made riding 10x better. With the bar length, a few inches shorter, my arms are relaxed. I will try to post a pic when I get a chance after this weekend.

Commuted with the new setup... love it!

My back hunched forward a little more, and arms are not so wide apart compared to FT bar... also, the control areas were more slanted, giving a more natural grip position.

Maybe due to the gain in aerodynamics, it was easier to get up to speed on the new setup :iroc:

It felt like a even smaller bike now

Thanks for the update. It looks great!

It's hard to tell from the two pics if you're leaned forward more or not, but the woodcraft looks like it's almost about the same height as the FT bars, just narrower and slanted.

For me that's good news that you're not forced into a tucked position like actual clip ons on a sport bike. I'll consider these in the future but since I have a dart windscreen and barkbuster hand guards it wouldn't work for my current setup. Totally jealous, though!

The camera is mounted on the exact same spot with the same tilt, and it captured more tank, so I leaned forward a little bit more.. :p
