He's a character! On the topic of handlebars, I decided my stock bars on the 919 were too narrow and I didn't like the downward sweep at the grips (at least my back didn't). I considered Renthals but really like that classic chrome look so I used bars from a 2014 Honda CB1100. They fit perfectly (even the pre-drilled holes lined up with the 919 control nipples). They are about 1.5 inches higher and much wider and still have the classic chrome stock look. If anybody is interested I can post a photo and the part number.

please do, i'd like to see it. If i can find one cheaper than a set of renthals i'm try finding one. I'm currently shopping for a bar upgrade from the stock. I like the height, but the sweep back is killing my wrists.

I don't plan on swapping handle bars, I don't own a Yamaha and don't intend on buying one, yet I watched this video in its entirety.

Everything sounds better with a British accent. FACT.
