Hi guys
im 6'3" and find my knuckles are not in line with the bars and need to rotate them. As the stock bars have a bolt through to the yoke i was lookin at some GYTR versions..

..however if the race bars have no bolt (on the basis the race yoke has no place for them), should i assume that it's safe/reliable to simply remove the bolt from joining the stock bars to the yoke and rotate them accordingly?

Thanks in advance

I don't see why not. Just check for clearance while rotating the steering lock to lock.

HI Robbo, I rotated my stock bars forward a few degrees and found enough room in the yoke to drill another hole,still within the recess but right to the forward edge,the new studs sit proud of the yoke face with a suitable washer to adequately tighten them.Those studs just give confidence that rotation cannot possibly happen.I imagened in my mind the bars moving mid corner and the consequences that would bring so no way was I going to leave them out.
