    I wanted to try something without cutting and welding. Didn't know if there was an after market part or something.

    X steering

    Yes, there were a couple of different bolt on steering risers used to lower an X's steering. The one I bought is from Race Engineering, and another was from Les Cooke I believe. It really made a difference in appearance and handling. RE's was a nice piece of aluminum,left clear, while the Cooke piece was the orange color. I bought it here in the online store, but can't seem to find it anymore. Maybe discontinued? Here's a pic, and it should be visible in my avatar picture.

    Hi Mike,

    your bar mount you are running was made by us, at jack racing if you look at the link i posted yours is the same except for the colour of the anodising
    running the bars this low makes a big diffrence for the better doesnt it?


    Cheers
    Jase
