    Would i be safe to use 41MM woodcraft handlbars with 1.5" risers and not run into any problems that cant be easily fixed?

    Absolutely, you just have to make sure to position controls to clear all obstacles before committing to final location. Mine clears the tank lock to lock and the mirror base. Lowering the forks IMO makes handling better. I've had mine modded this way for 2 or 3 years and have had zero issues. Just have to make sure they are both set to exactly the same height to avoid any issues. It's not really hard at all, just time consuming to make sure everything is perfect.

    Hey Scott,

    How did you like your stock bars in the forward position, and how did it affect your body positioning/ handling?

    Also, how did the forward bar position compare to the clipons in terms of handling?

    Thanks in advance!

    Default Spongy-ness

    So a buddy and I finally got the woodcraft handlebars installed on my FZ6R. Took about 3 hours to install(along with making minor adjustments and testing riding to make more minor adjustments). And i absolutely love the look and feel of the handlebars when riding. One concern i have though. Installing the handlebars, caused me lower the bike 1.5 inches. Now when i ride through dips in the road, i can feel a spongy feeling in the forks. And im wondering how could i get ride of that soft spongy feeling?

    I've had woodcraft clip-ons for 3 or so years and don't think my front end feels spongy. How much do you weigh and how many miles on your bike? If you dropped one fork even slightly lower then the other it can and will affect performance making it unstable. You could always upgrade the fork springs and go to a heavier weight fork oil.

    Well you weigh a lot less then I do and have less miles. Not sure why it would feel so spongy then. You can upgrade the fork components though (springs and oil). It should feel a little different, because it does change you body angle a little, but shouldn't make your forks spongy. Make sure everything is tightened down and extremely even on both sides.
