While we're at it, can we get prices and how you mounted the gauges?

Drag bars, GT piston stem, PWJDM shim kit, NCY soft grips

I like it OK, I bet the Z bars would be more comfortable. One day I will probably buy some clubman,s or Z bars to replace the drag bars I have. All in all I spent $75 or so for the bar setup I have.

On another note: Ruck you 2 - did your PWJDM shim come with the polished button head bolt? Mine was raw & started to rust pretty much immediately. Yours looks much nicer.

My whole setup is in the hands of UPS as we speak. I'll let you know how it works out.

Those are clubman bars, not z bars. These are z bars.

I think those are the same one's I bought but in black. They're pretty nice and comfortable. I flipped them up and leaned them forward a little bit. THe rise is just right, not to high, not to low.

I used a mountain bike style stem so the bars would sit up a bit higher(easier on my back and no binding cables), some used carbon bars with a slight raise, and the password shim kit.

Its more comfortable than the bmx stem/ straight bar set-up that I tried.

Stem: 90mm long 45 degree raise. Cost $24 shipped on ebay
bars: Carbon fiber 30mm raise. Cost $35 used on ebay
Shim kit: My first kit was a 1 1/8" to 1" shim with a 1" long piece of plummers tape inside of the shim. Not the prettiest, but it worked good. Cost $5 on ebay.
Then I bought a password shim kit, because it looked cleaner with the stem cap. :P Cost $40.

I put some lower Bikemaster Euro Bars on mine.
chromoly steel, 3" rise, with a NCY stem.

the bars were only $22, the stem was $65 used. the bars had enough of a rise in them that there wasn't too much excess cable sticking out the front and getting pinched.

since this pic, I've also put some 3" round bar end mirrors on it, so the side profile of the scoot is now very low.

NCY Showstopper Clamp - ~$100 back in the day
Triangle Drag Bars - ~$40 from arunto

Great with low bars, much more comfortable, i got monkeylike arms so it helps keep my arms streched out on longer rides. Gives it a funky feel too... like tight :twisted:

For gages, i switched over to a Veypor VR2
