Took the "standard" bars off of the old GS450L and put them on the new GS850L, replacing the "pullback" bars that were on it.

I take it a lot of people like these bars, and if I wasn't such a lanky apefreak they would have been great for me, too. Unfortunately, they put my wrists at an absurd angle. With these new bars, and my wrists perpendicular to the controls, I can use the throttle, clutch, and brake with some amount of control.

Do you have better before and after pics?

You can't tell from pictures that the bars are different, you can barely tell the difference when you're holding both of them in your hands. They're radically different to ride with, though.
