Wow, quite a bit of work there
. Good to hear you managed in the end.
I too went with the Barons - I didn't want any fuss
What a lot of people do when adding risers other than the Rivco and Barons especially made for the Strat/Roadliner, is open up the holes in the trees a little. This will prevent one from remounting the original clamps, however.
The brake line needs to be taken out of the guide indeed for the placement of (relatively low) risers if the line is not extended - it now runs behind the shield in my case too. I plan on replacing the lines at some stage in any case. Need to decide first whether I want a different handlebar or not, as it is quite wide - riding faster than 85 mph or thereabouts is almost impossible without a shield with these wide bars, for me anyway
. So far, I am happy, but I haven't done more than 200 miles in a single day yet
@Mental: what do you plan to achieve with a headlight modulator? If it is for better visibility, as in, being seen by others, wouldn't it be better to have more intense lighting instead, like halogen lights or so?
What I have seen in the past is some fluorescent purplish light as well, and that was extremely visible
. It has the effect of a kind of afterglow on one's retina, so it is impossible to miss. I have only seen this once, however, on some super sport bike.
Kind regards, Wim
