Yeah, I'm not feelin it either. The PT is 30-1/2" from end of grip to end of grip. Is this how wide the Renthals are? How do you guys with Renthals feel about the width, or did you cut them down as well? I can't cut down the PT because there's not enough straight bar.
If your Coerce bars are now 25-3/4", then that's just about the same as stock.
I sat on a MV Augusta at the IMS, and that bike has bars that seemed just as wide as the ProTapers. It was the first thing I noticed when I sat on that bike, too.
