As long as you like the width (because width makes a big difference to feel) and they are as stiff as the original i can't see a problem.
It looks very different without the cover/surround thing over the triple clamp.
I have the that very setup on my 06 K12s. I also had a friend (machinist by trade) make some one inch risers to lift the handlebar by that amount. Aside from the very high price for the conversion it makes the bike's ergos a bit easier on my personal framework. If you are wanting to sit upright a bit more this is the best looking (imo) and most effective setup you can get!
Thank you Jim that sounds good to me I think in time that’s what I will do I may ride it a bit more the way it is for under 100 mile loops it’s fine with the other bikes I have that’s probably all I would use it for anyway but With my back I think it would be better to get up higher. This is nine of the 15 screws and brackets in my back
