Guys, i was finally able to change my handlebars! I got the bike with aftermarket burlegh bars, and dint have the stock parts for the stock bar. With the advice of the forum members, i was able to find a nice drag bar, found alternate stock riser part number and i was able to put it all together! Sorry, i dont have great pics, as it was raining when i picked up the bike, but here are some pics of before and after.
Even on my way back home, driving slow in the rain, it was such a different driving experience! Wow, what a transformation! Absolutely love it. Though other bars were more comfy, with drag bars i feel the bike so much better now!

p.s. if anyone in Miami need burleigh bar, im looking to sell them (they were $1k new).

P.s.scan i lower the bike on the stock suspension?

Nice work!

I have seen 1 inch lowering adapters for sale, no experience with them but personally I wouldn't been too keen on putting them on my bike. I saved up and went with Arnott's air ride...yes it's more money but I feel it was worth the cost. Can roll down the strip nice and low then bump up the ride height for some long sweeping corners, also ride quality is superior to the stock rear shocks.

Your bike is looking great, enjoy!

The notches are your pre-load. Yes, may change the height -slightly- but it's there for firmness. I think you can go with a 12.5" shock (someone please correct me if I'm wrong) but that's only 1/2" shorter from stock and doesn't make much of a difference, however it's as low (I think) as you can go on an otherwise stock bike without rubbing the tire. If you plan on spending money, go with the Air Ride as stated above!
