You will like the bar backs. I have put them on my GT (different to the '98 RS) and I like them a lot, no effect on handling noticed. You may also want to investigate the footpeg droppers that the Pirate sells, also improves the ergos for us old guys. I wanted my GT to be an RT with KRS performance, and this is the only way to do that, you cannot make an RT run like a K bike!
You will have to remove all of the tupperware and the fuel tank to get the slack in the wiring you will require, also you may have to replace the front brake line from the handlebar with a longer one, I did.
Good luck with it and ask all the questions you want, this is a great forum!
