6 degree trees finally installed

Installed my sumo-x 6 degree trees today. Unfortunately 6 degrees wasnt far off from the temp outside also, so didn't get much riding in upon completion. I'm super happy with the way it turned out, now just looking for new handlebars.

Nice rake job Mr train. Thats the way our bikes shoulda been stock. As far as bars are concered, look into the CP punishers. Very good fit for the rake you did, and if you add some forward controls, even beter. Dont worry spring will be here soon.... Dam midwest

Thanks i was looking into those bars. I'm just concerned because im 6'2" and don't want much for pullback. I wouldn't mind a bit of pull back but i'm looking for up. As far as spring, i really can't complain because i've been out a couple of times a month all winter. Its really helped the madness us northern guys go through all winter.

Yeah winter really helps us do our mods and welcome the warm weather evan more. do your research with the bars. Im 6' and with my forward cotrols and the Cp bars I can ride my X all day without discomfort. You wont be leaning forward, just enough pull back to have you in a good uprite riding position.

I'm 6'1 and went with the PHATPERFORMANCE 1.5" MASSIVE T-bars. They have 8" of rise and 7" of pullback, fit me perfect. You may want to give those a look.
