    Well Damn.

    Those handlebars showed up. Renthal street bars in low. Wouldn't you know it. They don't fit. Too high. The throttle cables are too short. They won't reach. The bike will only take Ultra-low bars unless I get longer cables. I'm not doing that.

    Revzilla is getting the bars back. I'm keeping the Biltwell grips. Already have them on the bike. It wouldn't been kewl if the bars had fit.

    Ill stew around if I want to try and switch out bars again. I've gotten use to the factory bars. There not bad. I still want a different color of bars though...

    Hey Cam. What's your favorite brand of full face helmets? Been looking at a Bell Qualifier. Then every review I've read said Shoei is what to get. That SOB runs $400 for a cheap one...

    Isn't your head worth $400?

    Another question. How is "Shoei" pronounced?

    'Shoe-e' or 'Show-e' or something else?

    To be honest, Americans pronounce it SHOE-ee

    I believe proper Japanese is SHOW-ay

    Both brands are A1 choices.

    More ventilation is better.

    All the helmets I have are for cruisers. Everyone is the direct opposite I need for a quicker bike. If I'm going to buy a full face. Might as well buy a real helmet.
