---has anyone adjusted the handlebar---

has any body tried to adjust the handlebar.I tried to change it cause in my sitting position my arms were straigt and i was not having enough arm movement for the counter steering...but i realised even for a guy at my height (1.72) and even at my sitting position (I sit as far as i can away from the gas tank or lets say sit at the very back of the seat) the factory adjustment for that is optimum ....

Yes I moved mine back about one inch. Just right for my size.

After reading this I checked mine and it was a little high (the punch mark).
The manual says the punch mark is supposed to be lined up with the lower
edge of the mount and mine was lined up with the top edge. Doesn't seem like
much but I moved the handlebar to the correct position and it moved the grips
back like a 1/2" or more. It's noticably more comfortable now.

Canton. I was just in AA this afternoon at the SuperBikeStore to pick up a
Powerbronze windscreen.
