I'm 6' and adjusted my handlebars upwards 4" from factory...ohh so much more comfortable...anyone else adjusted theirs to suit? Was going to put the 16" bars on but don't need to now so just saved myself a grand [biggrin]

I dropped apes on my DH and then make some minor adjustments, I am 6ft too, i did write a thread somewhere about this, its really important to adjust bars and not just levers

If I recall correctly, we can't even rotate levers and switch housing as the bar has holes that line up to 'pin' sticking out from the housing.

You are half correct, V. The switch housings are locked in place as you say, but the actual levers are adjustable.

3 of us in WA who are over 6 foot also added floorboard lowering kits by Aeromach. There is a heap of posts on in in this site. Aeromach are good to deal and the lowering kit made a huge difference

levers can be moved easily, as for the controls, either get rid of the "pin" or redrill the bars to suit

I just ordered the Aeromach kit now! Shipping is a bit steep but from what I read it should be worth it!! I feel like a praying mantis at the moment!

You won't regret it, I'm 194cm and had the same problem, much more comfortable after installing the lowering kit, be even better if I could raise the seat a couple of inches also.

I changed the angle of my bars after the first ride, the bike is a Vintage (mind you, that was from Darwin back to Alice).  Wasn't a hassle and made a world of difference.  Did the same with my Scout, again didn't need much.  A lot cheaper than changing the bars.

I adjusted the bars last night. What a difference already - I ended up going up a fair way but it's pretty comfy now. Nice and easy to adjust. I am looking forward to the relocating kit arriving! It seemed the most eco way of getting comfy without having to get a corbin seat (even though they look awesome!)
