Will 1100 handlebars work on 650 Custom?
I have a 2008 V-star 650 Custom. Stock bars are too straight and hurt my back/shoulders. I want to swap them out for ones with more pullback, like the ones on the Classic. From the fitment chart, it looks like the ones from an 1100 should fit, but even a Yamaha dealer/shop can't tell me if they'll work on my Custom (since the forks are different.) If they DO fit, would my cables be long enough?

Anyone have any ideas? I tried Virago style bars, but they were too short and the risers the dealer had wouldn't clear my speedometer and gas tank. Don't want to spend more $$ to find out they don't fit (esp. since I can't do the work myself!)

Year / Bar Diameter / Height / Width / Pullback / Center / Clamp Area

Thanks for any help.
