handlebar angle

I would like to lean the handlebars in a bit so the grips would be a little lower. Can this be done by simply loosening the main clamp in front of the tank and just giving a slight turn or is there more to it??

That's it, just make sure nothing is rubbing or binding afterwards.

I take my allen wrench with me after adjustments. Ride for a few miles until you like it.
Mine are pushed forward as far as possible, more of an ape hanger feel.
I don't get as many requests to ride it that way either

You got it. Be sure to loosen it enough so you don't strip the splines on the handlebars.
