Man I cant believe some of yall are complaining about the ergonomics on this setup. Maybe its a different crowd over here in the Monster world, but i find the factory bar position on the Monster to be one of the biggest negatives of the bike. Something Jesse James would sell.
The clip ons make it a proper sporting motorcycle. To each their own.
I agree with Chris though, dont use the factory 916 bars, the single best ergo change I made to my 996 was dumping those.
