Default What a difference pullbacks make

Being pretty new to motorcycles, I thought my XR fit me pretty good, but decided to install the XC mitered bars, and what a difference. Best mod I have done, really makes my new Mustang seat that much better!! I think it makes the tri ovals even sound better

Default Mitered Bars

Very nice looking. Do they give you any better reach or pullback? I was considering XC bars on my XR, for extra pullback. Also, did you have to buy any extra components, or did everything just come off the old bars & onto the new? I know with my 2010 XR I would have to buy a new brake line.
Thanks for any info you can share, and safe riding.

Scooter, i think these give me 3 inches of pullback, according to another member that installed them. I did not need to purchase anything else, except new zip ties. To get all the lines to wok, just cut all the zip ties and took off the headlight bezel and got the slack I needed, then just reassembled and tied the lines. Pretty easy job really.

The bars look great and I bet they make the bike faster too.

How do you like the Mustang seat compared to the stock seat?

I like it much better
You really sit down in the seat much more, i notice its a little harder for me to flat foot the bike now, i still can but the wider seat is noticeable.

Thanks for the update on the seat. Does the seat push you back farther than stock? If you have any pics with the new seat on I'd be grateful if you can post them on this thread or a new thread about the seat. I'm on the fence about getting the new Mustang seat and haven't seen any pics of it on a Cross Roads yet.

Ill try and get some pics up. I ordered the seat mostly because to get both backrests like i wanted was gonna cost almost as much as getting a new mustang seat with both backrests. The part number is 79567, and thru ebay got it and the additional backrest for the passenger for less than 800.
The backrest is fully adjustable up and down and can be adjusted by a set screw to push you forward or lay back more. I did 1100 mile trip this week with it, with no windshield, and the backrest was invaluable, as most of the trip was on the interstate at 80mph plus...cant wait to do it again with the new bars now.
