Thinking about a radical change to my seating position due to common sense and I would like to get a new top yoke for drilling so I can keep my original to re-set the bike to it's standard beauty if I ever decide to sell so anybody got one?

Why not mount swan necks?

Fit some Varibars but even if you do put some flat bars on you need to check they'll clear the bodywork.

I needed to raise the bars on my DB5R a bit so I used Woodcraft clipons with a 2 inch rise. They also have higher options. There are other brands as well, and the will give you the result for much less money and hassle.

The woodcraft 3 inch riser looks promising and an easy solution. There isn't an inch of space with the fairing on so if I do this I am going to go streetighter and stash the bodywork intact so it is easy to put back to standard if needs be. I have a spare tank seat unit so I might do a bit of chopping and changing there too, funds being the limiting factor as ever.....
Or I might just put up with the pain and ride it as opposed to playing with it. Very Happy
