Put several hundred miles on my K75RT in the past week after a bit of a lay up while I mostly rode my K100RS and K75S.  After spending time on those bikes, the bars on my RT seem to be pulled back too far.  I have grown accustomed to leaning forward a bit, and except for the bend in my arms, find it to be a very comfortable posture on the RT.  While I find the weather protection of the RT very nice at the extreme ends of the riding season, the riding position doesn't seem as conducive to a more aggressive riding style.

So, my question is, has anyone here put bars with less pullback on their RT/LT? 

Is there any problem with them hitting the fairing or the tank?

I was thinking of "C" bars, but they are no longer available.  Is there another model bar with a pullback of 6 to 8 inches that would work ?
