I had a set on an exup, came fitted to the bike, the back end was so high I found myself putting far to much weight on the bars, especially during brake/turn in where the input should be one of turning the bike not trying to stop yourself going over the bars. I put a zx10 shock on her and as it was shorter it dropped the back end down near standard ride height, completely transformed the handling.
Only fitting adjustable for the mechanical look, once on I doubt I'll feel the need to touch them again
The rose joints (from company that supplies rod ends for race cars) and bar only £60, so depending on cost of machining shouldn't be much more than cost of most off the shelf jack up kits, and I'll have enough 17mm hex bar left over for several sets so may be able to recoup my costs by flogging a few through ebay.
