Speedometer and handlebar questions
Got a couple of Noob questions... First one is about the speedometer and how it sits on the fuel tank. I've only had the bike for about 2 months, so maybe I'm just now noticing this but - Is my speedometer sitting correctly on the fuel tank? It looks like there is a really big gap between the speedo and the fuel tank. I pulled the screw and lifted up the speedo, it looks like everything is lined up correctly and doesn't look like anything is out of place. I've tried looking at some other photos but can't zoom in enough to take a good look.
Question #2 is about handlebars and risers. I like where my bars sit, but I don't like the look of these big goofy risers. I measured everything, as best as I can tell the risers are 5.5 inches, and the handlebar rise is 8.25 inches. I still have some wiggle room in my cables, my thought is to go with a smaller 1 or 2 inch riser and a set of 10-12 inch bars. That should keep the handlebars in the same spot without having to replace my cables. I've seen some nice handlebars on Amazon, they are 1.25 inch but taper down to 1 inch where the risers and controls go. Anyone have experience with these? Looking at the measurements I think they would work fine, the tapered sections should fit.
