    But, if you drive aggressively at all, DO NOT GET THE COBRA BARS! They are too low, and will actually hit the ground and scrape before the pipes will. I discovered this in the scariest possible way (while on the Dragon). It actually hit and allowed the rear wheel to lift up in a tight curve. I had put cobra swepts on my bike, and the cobra crash bars actually hit before the pipes. As soon as I could, I replaced them. That was an accident waiting to happen. If you do not drive aggressively, they may work, but if you do, you will crash with these bars.

    Just my thoughts...
