Stock bars work great at something I'm sure, just don't know what. Personally I like to see them sailing into the junk pile.

I'm a big fan of SuperBike bars, every bike here that takes 7/8" bars has SuperBike bars on it. I'm 58 and 6'3" if that helps :)

I don't care much how it looks, I care how it functions, and the SuperBike bars are loads more comfortable than stock bars.

Herk your rear tire looks big/wide in the pic. Is it an optical illusion or over sized?

P.S. Risen1, I find the slight forward lean very comfortable and even more so when at highway speeds. My arms would get tired on long rides because of the constant pull to hold myself forward while the wind was trying to push me backwards. And as you know, the arms are bent, with the elbows down and inward with the mini apehangers. With my arms straight and the slight lean, all it takes is holding on to the grips which is much more comfortable.

mike your right on the money with that...my problem is circulation with my arms constantly trying to hold on i wear out fast pushing 69 is a handfull also that bike of yours should be a keeper for a long time you wont find one that nice unless you do another one its a beauty another question i bought on ebay a oil cooler from a 750 kawa gtx not sure of the letters but its a factory one with the lines trouble is instructions to hook up the ends to the motor wasent included and i'm missing something on the motor because the ends have like a flange with 2 holes but wont line up to anything with 2 holes anywere on the motor what do you think?

I believe the letters your looking for are GPZ. I got one from ebay also that came off a 1000 GPZ but all the fittings came with mine. If I remember correctly, at least one and maybe both of the lines on the 750 connected to the oil pan (not the same as the 1000). If that is the case you will need an oil pan from a 750 GPZ. There may be another way to connect it on the 750, but I'm not sure.

It sounds like you are describing the 2 ports on the oil pan in the link. Did you scroll down and look at the 9 pics in the add? The last pic shows a front view of the pan with 2 connection ports like you described.
