So here's the important question - did you drill the bars?

Joking aside, I plan on doing this upgrade during the winter How do you find the riding position compared to stock? I am debating between medium and street fighter.

Drill the bars? you mean for the throttle index? yeah?

I only rode the stock for about a week until the renthols arrived.. Its pretty much the same TBH.. but the vibration is reduced

OK, so medium is pretty much the same and streetfighter is a bit more aggressive. Good to know!

Reduced vibes is good, although existing vibration on this bike has never bothered me. The 954 could numb my hands very quickly - compared to that, the niner feels like a cruiser.

To get the position of the bars, we've always looked from the side of the bike and matched the angle of the forks. Good starting point anyways.

The medium is almost the same for pullback and rise, but has a much shallower angle for the bend, so you're shoulders don't feel pinched together. I liked the medium way better than stock. The streetfighter is the same angle as the medium, but is ~3/4" down and forward. I've ridden with both and liked them both quite a bit.

Thanks for clarifying.

I am looking for something slightly more aggressive than stock - still needs to be comfortable for the city and the stop-and-go but a bit more of a lean for the highway. Ultra low seems to be too much for what I want - street fighter seems like a good compromise.
