Get straight bars on there. People knock CNComfy but mine came through quick and it was fairly easy. Only did drag bars so no fairing alterations

Quite a lot of us have done the Ultra Low Renthal bar conversion, it worked for me and also plenty of others.
Yes it does mean you have to cut the fairing, but that's no big deal, a bit of masking tape, a hack saw blade and 30 minutes work, plus it actually suites the bike when done propperly.

FIX 1.jpg
Standard bars & a wonkey wrist, bit achey on the first real long run...Wales 2014 but no real problems since then with discomfort...I did have the plate removed after about a year tho...
