Did you chop down the bars at all, or leave them full length?
I didn't chop but I experimented. Since they are rather wide, I first put the grips in 1". Then tried .5" & that came to a happy medium. I still run the same bars on my second 9er albeit this time I used Rox risers to get the bars closer to me. Same .5" inwards but never bothered to cut them. The extra length will act as sliders
