Handlebar Conversion

I know this has been covered a billion times. Here is my reasoning:

I love riding motards. I loved my SV1000. So I figured, the perfect bike should be a decked out SV650 with Fatbars and GSXR forks. I did quite a bit of research and found a few opposing oppinions. I decided after looking at the price of a CNC upper clamp, that drilling my upper and installing dirt bike risers was the way to go. I fgured if the Stunt guys can drill there clamps and do all of those crazy things without too much issue, my street riding and track days should be fine. So here are a few pictures:

Special thanks to Jason for the deal on the bike. he did all of the hard work and deserves the credit for how nice the bike is before I tear into it!

last one for now:
Still need break lines and run the cables. Then decide on which headlight I want. cannot decide if I will keep the solo light now or if I'll go with triumph style dual round lights.

Yes, thanks. i forgot to let you know.
Theyare about 6 inches taller than the GSXR clip-ons, but do not slant so far back. Feels alot like a motard!
Just dropped off my break lines at the shop, they are making me a set of longer braided lines. I still may need new throttle cables and Clutch cable from an N model.
