WHY? Most of us are looking for more range, not less.

Its coz I want to use the clubman handle bars and its not clearing with the tank. Unless I hammer bith sides of the tank and I can't make full turns.


I know I know... Why clubman? I just like the way it looks

OK, now I understand. You must be young and thin to be able to ride leaned over that far!
I wonder if a peanut tank off a Sportster could be made to fit?

I could lean it but its just not clearing it. I barely started riding tho. Btw now I have another problem... the throttle push won't retract coz I broke a tiny piece of plastic that holds the end of the cable. Any ideas on this?

if your spring is good you don't need the push cable only the pull.
also.. have you thought about useing 2 inch risers on those bars?
