Question Straight Handlebars and Givi Screen

I'm thinking about changing out the stock handlebars for bars that are straighter, but I'm concerned that they might hit my Givi screen in the full left/right position. Have any of you put on straighter bars with the Givi wind screen?

I've done a search and read some posts on the topic, but any additional thoughts on handlebars would be appreciated. I find that I don't like how the sweep of the stock bars puts my wrists in an angled position. I'd like to straighten out the wrists.

Big B has the Pro Taper ATV High's, and I don't believe he has any problems with his Givi. Give him a shout.

My handguards "barely" hit the screen at full turn. But....I have the old style Givi, and the new units have cut outs for the handguards. If you had to actually turn that sharp at low speed, it was a heck of a turn. I no longer have my handguards, I didn't like them.
