    I received my Riva FZR steering system today and got it installed. Very easy install and it looks great. This system is definitely a work of art.

    Install instructions are here if you care to look over them

    Here's some pics I took of the install.

    What's nice about this system is the height is adjustable up/down. If it's not high enough for you then there are optional tube kits in 5.5" or 7.5" lengths to help get the bars up higher

    Steering system is here

    I guess my tips would be get a grinder and just cut that allen head off that holds the OTS tabs on.. i heated mine and had a impact on it and they stripped right out.. replaced them with some nice stainless bolts!!!!
    2. make sure you have the allen wrenches that are single not the ones on a little holder because a couple of bolts are tight fits..
    3. if using the OEM grips get a 7mm tap handy and a sander to take the metal grippy things off on the one bar end..

    Very nice.

    Jerry--did you re-use the stock grips? Also, did you leave the turning leverage the same as stock? I see the Riva steering arm has three settings for leverage.
