Changed it up a bit!

Hey all, finally snagged a meanie seat to put in place of my goofy and wild stock seat, also changed the handlebars out for some that are a good bit lower. Totally love the new style, that is except for the newly sticking throttle... Cable issue perhaps? Anyway I've attached a picture of it, I'll post more when I can get to a computer later this evening... Let me know what you think!!

Hey, that's looks good! Wish I had done that instead of buying the Corbin seat.

I only understand what I don't understand.

That's the seat I put on mine. Definitely more comfortable than the stock saddle. I did cut the frame rails on mine so the seat would sit flush with the fender.

I'm definitely a fan of the new "sportier" look. Anyone have experience on lower handlebars?

That looks quite sexy. I am putting on some lower bars tonight or tomorrow so I'll report back.

Which bars are those? Any issues with them hitting the tank at full turn?

They are 30 inch z bars. 3.5 rise, 2.5 pull back. No issues whatsoever, I will say at first I was a bit nervous, but they come just short of the tank at full turn.

... On the inside corners that is, the hand grip portion of the bars has way more than enough clearance at full turn.
