How much difference is there between beach bars and stock? PhatRJ has a fairing with what looks like oem bars. Look at his sig pic and maybe you can get an idea.
Hey that's me! Big difference between stock and beach.
Actually I have Baron's Big Johnson bars, which are kind of close to beach bars but still have a bend in them. They look a lot like beach bars when you roll them down. I had to roll them up some to get them behind the fairing and actually into the zone where the wind was being blocked.
Here are some pics, before and after:
The last is with them rolled up. I'm pretty sure beach bars would be below the fairing.
