Default Question on Bars....?

Since I'm now returning the $535 Arai helmet I want to use the $$ to do something I've had my mind on for quite a while. Help me out with this, thanks.
I want to change the bars. I've been running my stock set in a slightly elevated position since year one. l'd like these things from the new bar: 1. Slightly more pull back 2. Better wrist angle 3. Better looks and 4. Utilize the stock cables.
Any suggestions?
thanks

I'll likely be going with a hydraulic clutch also.

Vicbaggers Tarzanz bars are great. I have +3 up +1 back. I am 6' and they are perfect for me.

How's the hand angles compared to stock? Any chance you could post a pic of your bars?

You'll just have to ride my Heli-Bar-equipped XCT one of these days, and see what you think. Unless you don't want to part with quite that much coin.

Cheers,

Yea..I just can't spring for Heli's
I'm leaning toward the Ness Modulars in black, but that is at the top of my price range.

Okay, gotcha, duly noted. You'll have to ride the bike, anyway, sometime. Busy this week, watching grandkids, but maybe one of your Wednesdays off in a week or two...

Yes we should....I haven't seen you in a dog's age(that's 7 years longer than a persons age...LOL)
As nice as it is around here today, I won't be getting any riding in either. I've got a few things I need to take care of that actually don't involve a motorcycle.....really

Just put a set of taranz on my 14cc. What a great add to my bike. Amazed at how much better it feels as I had no complaints before. Am short at 5'8" so I went 2 back 1 up. Couldn't be happier with them and Vicbaggers is tremendous. Ric helped me find the custom color I wanted and made it super easy.
