I've got the ZG ST screen and was curious about this myself. The screen has a cutout where the stock handlebars fit in nicely at full lock. Hard to guess what effect the new geometry might have.Has anybody installed the helibars with an aftermarket Puig or Zero Gravity Sport touring screen?
Yes, there is a locating "pin" (it's just a bolt,) but that pin has slop within the notch it fits into. I know what you mean about feeling the difference in "sportiness." Pushing the bar into a turn feels different, as one should expect of bars that raise and pull back, but it took only a few short rides to adapt and get used to the new feel. If I switched back, I am sure it would feel awkward all over again for a short spell. All in all, I suggest maybe you went a little knee-jerk prematurely without giving them a fair chance. But if you are happy with the stock bars, it's all good. But that begs the question, if you are happy with stock, and a bar which raises and pulls back the grips would naturally alter the leverage and feel of operating the bars, which bothers you, why did you buy them? Just asking.I had a Honda dealership do this for me... he insisted he could not since a locating pin had to be there.
Anyway, they feel far less sporty in the curves and I will refund for that reason plus the reasons in the pics.
