Ok, so I got my LSL aluminum bars all installed. I ordered the bead blasted silver and I think they look great! I also like now they have just a little more rise and pull back than stock. I cut the bars about 7/8" from each end to keep the stock width.

Maybe I am crazy, but it seems I have less vibration in my hands as well when on the freeway.

I will say that there was BARELY any weight savings compared to the stock steel bar. I was expecting the stock bar to be way heavier than it was.

The LSL Roadster is 538 gram / 1.18 lbs; don't know the weight of a stock handlebar.
