Just installed the ISO grips(love em), turn signals, and JSD-3 mod(gotta do this to yours) and raised my handlebars. Raising the handlebars is a must do mod! Bike feels so comfortable now. Waiting for Jason`s lowering bones to arrive anyday now.

Hows the installation on the grips easy or hard?
Grips were really easy. Trust me, I am not mechanically inclined and I had no problems doing them. Just make sure you do the right grip first so you can line up your left grip to match!

Looks awesome, Wingy! Love those grips... going to order some today. Yeah, raising the bars works wonders! Not only does it feel better, it makes low-speed full-lock turns a breeze. :bigthumbsup:

Can you tell me how to raise the handlebars
CAREFULLY pry these four caps off (blue arrows), loosen the bolts underneath with an allen wrench, put the bars where you want them and tighten the bolts back up. Might want to put some tape around one side of the bars right up against the riser before you loosen the bolts so you can re-center the bars after you raise them. I used a dental pic to pry the caps up :doorag:

How does raising the bars make it more comfortable? And is this mod good for a big guy 6'2" 375+ with a 39 - 40" sleeve? I thought i saw a thread about this but it was someone that was 5'8" or something and like a buck eighty-five. :bigthumbsup:

I am 5'6" and by raising the bars it makes for a more comfortable ride by putting your body in a more upright position instead of the reaching forward down position. I`m not sure what it would do for you but for me it made a word of difference especially in the slow turns when pulling out. You could try just moving the bars without your controls and take it for a ride and it you like the feel of it then move your controls. I also noticed that since I moved these bars that my wrists don`t hurt anymore when riding.

Also, if you do the ISO Flame Grips, check the direction of the flames. They are facing each other on each grip.

I second that emotion, i'm 5'6" myself and turning up the bars a bit made all the difference in the world. Now I can handle the bike, instead of her handling me :bigthumbsup:

I just drilled them out and used the bolts that came with the turn signals.
