I cut the upper portion off the 3 cover pieces and sanded to match the height. I then had to plastic weld in tabs for the 3 new screws to hold the pieces together. Once that was finished (and confirmed to work) I wanted to partly close the high gaping hole now left fro the removed upper portions. I made the flat trim pieces from scrap black textured ABS (actually Kydex). This was the harder part in achieving the contours to match exact and took a lot of hand filing, then scraping the edges smooth. Once sized correctly matched, I taped the new pieces into position (on the main cover) and plastic welded them in place. Now my handlebars have forward/aft adjustment and I could use the upper handlebar portion to mount accessories, if desired.

Hi Bj, exposed handlebars for accessories is good. Your craftsmanship looks good also. Now have a few more cast for the rest of us.  Smile

Thanks. Obviously, I cannot leave well enough alone. Due to the nerve damage in my right hand/arm, getting the handlebars position is critical. Otherwise, i'd leave it alone.

Sure, I can build you one. It would only cost (now lets see, how much is that Leo Vice exhaust) $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.
