It doesn't make it quicker, it makes it make what it makes quicker.
You'll know when you get one!
It's not falling off, it's an upgrade opportunity.

Just need to fit the controls and longer brake lines, and see what else needs tweaking.

Haha no, trying to make it somewhat comfortable.
My wrists aren't too happy with the clip ons, and once our lockdown is over I'll be going over the border to Wales to visit family, so need a comfier ride for the distance

And here we are, all finished.
Bleeding the brakes was a pain in the butt, til I bled the MC then all good.
Just need to extend the wiring for the horn and that'll be it.

Have sat on it in the driveway and it feels good being higher up, spin to the office later this afternoon to see how it goes

looks like a good job there and a hammer and a bin in the photos, so you have all the tools needed.


what I found when I did the flat bars on mine was that it helped to pull the forks up through the yokes a bit more to make up for the reduction of body weight over the front wheel. about 5mm should make a difference

oh and you might find that you need to move the mirrors out wider

1) because you will hit the top of your gloves on the mirrors on full lock
2) because all you will see is elbow
