T Bars on a D model

My last bike had T Bar bars on it, and I really loved those bars. I haven't really been able to get use to how narrow these bars are. I searched handlebars and it seems like most people have used Sportster bars, or the easy reach bars. Has anyone tried the T Bar style bars? I haven't looked how the gauges install, but I'm sure that will be my biggest issue.

I put stock DX bars on my D and really like the change, feels better and looks better IMO. Easy change just a bar swap.

Thanks

The stock DX bars are lower and only pull back about half as far as the stock D bars. Will try to get a couple pics tomarrow, course going to be hard to tell much from a picture.

You can probably find some one that has swapped their original A style bar/gauge nacelle (clam shell) with a B/D type that will sell you a set up cheap.
