I (not by myself) have installed the CB300F bars. I have ridden it about 100 miles and enjoyed the ride so much more than before. Yes, I think I am sitting up straight. I had Helibars on the bike for last about 2 years. This was a much more drastic change vs the stock bars to the Helibars.
I have ABS brakes and was not able to use the 45125-K33-701 HOSE, FR. BRAKE from the CB300F. There does not seem to be a replacement line I can use and I really don't think one is needed. If someone comes up with one, please post it.
I would encourage the next person to go ahead and order (Two) 90107-MBG-000 BOLT, ONE-WAY (8MM) to secure the LOCK SET. I just used bolts that gyrotumbler gave the specs to.
I bent the CB300F bars quite a bit, both up and back. The position has my hands turning out and up (if I am saying that correctly). It feels a little strange, but I have adapted to it already. It does not interfere with controlling the bike at all.
I still have some finishing touches to do. Like trimming the wind screen so it looks OK. While I was at it, I put on a 15t sprocket (like it just fine) and heated grips (not that time of year to test them) that I had purchased over a year ago.
I really want to thank all those (gyrotumbler, Pro, PSUrider and mrmunsell) (in that order) who pioneered this. You all have made my riding more enjoyable.
