Brilliant right up till the clutch cable gets involved.  :D  Now i will explain. In my quest to find handlebars that didn't give me back ache i tried several different types, drag bars included. when i fitted the drag bars all was great then my clutch cable broke. I got another cable which was different it had a metal tube at the lever end. I took it back along with my old one and was told my old one was a bodge and the new one was correct. so i fitted the new one only to find that with the drag bars the cable bashed the clocks and restricted right hand lock. As my bike is not streetfightered this was a problem. I ended up with black renthal style bars this has stopped my back pain and the bike handles great. Hope my tale of woe is helpfull

Fitted Renthal Drag bars (flat) to a Buddys Fazer thou (faired) with no issues whatsoever.. bar adjusting the angle of front brake hose at the Master cylinder  :)
Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it...
