Bar height restrictions

Something which MAY take the sting out for those who get aggravated about the bar height restrictions we have.

'ello

s'pose I should introduce myself. Don't have anything I'd call a chopper at the moment, '85 xv1000 has been slightly modified by myself and previous owners, removing a lot of clutter and useless crap, adding a simpler/lighter banana seat, forward controls, drag bars, drag pipes, smaller hi-flow air ...
