Not bad, is it hard to see out of the mirrors when they are low like that?

I love that setup and had it on my sportie just be careful. Those controls can now slam into your tank and dent it. I'd put some additional stops on your tripple trees to prevent this like I did with mine.

I had to add risers when I ran drag bars on my N. The controls would kit the tank with the stock risers. Tried everything but nothing worked.

I pushed the bars against the stops with the controls loose and tightened them with .25 inch clearance.
