Too high...
Too low...
Just about right.

Let your back tell you how it feels.
I rather sit straight, hand slightly lower than shoulder level.
Will you be doing short rides or long tours?
Hunched over for 200 miles is not for me.
So you'll get various opinions but your body is what you should be listening to.

Hey I changed out the throttle cable for a shorter one. The housing length seems okay but the cable travel has too much slack. Not sure what to do now I want to ride and im frustrated. http://cloud.tapatalk.com/s/5ae39584...427_172038.mp4

I absolutely hate these. PO made them. I want to go with pull back drags or something similar. Need to clear a fat bob dash. Not sure how high to go. Maybe 10 inch rise.
