    I am 6'-4" with long arms and legs. I find that the stock bars are comfortable, which is one reason why I have two Nines. I have modified the risers and bars on my 1800F VTX to give me more forward...

    Lift the rear of the bike off the ground and apply the rear brake as you turn the rear wheel. A slight amount of pressure on the pedal should lock the rear wheel.
