Re: 99 lt
I suffered through man, many miles wishing I could adjust the handle bars, and was able to alter their position by loosening their clamps, which didn't help my desire to have them closer to me.
If you scan the early segment of our community files you'll find a fellow that cut the bars and inserted a dowel between the cuts to position the bars where he wanted.--I remember he was a fire fighter.
One day a community member sent me a note that after he bought a back rest he no longer felt uncomfortable with the handle bars.
So, before I left Maine for home here in tucson, AZ I bought a back rest--end of problem.
If you scan some more, you'll find a fellow who motorized the adjustment for his back rest, Ari the farkel freak.
Before you bail, consider buy a back rest. The other absolutely necessary for me was an after market seat.
If you are not running a GPS, there is a mod, soldering a jumper wire on a printed circuit board, that makes your speedometer accurate!!
