I put them on my Wee about a year ago (at least I think they were Gen-Mar).
Anyway I had to take the front brake line support bracket loose from the lower tripple tree brace. I just left it hanging there, about an inch higher than it was prevously. I also moved the clutch cable housing and mirrors inboard about a half inch on each side. Oh yea, they don't go through the wire holders on the top tripple tree clamps anymore either.
It is a lot more comfortable. Instant payback. No more long ride backache.

Dl-650 as well, but the install is easy. I had too cut a few cable ties and turn my brake line a bit is all. Great product.

I had them on my Vee for a few months and took them off because I was never able to get enough slack in the throttle cable to keep it from stretching at full lock to the right. It pulled so tight that the bars wouldn't lock without putting pressure on the cables. I didn't have any problem with the clutch side controls and cables. Maybe it's how they put it together at the factory.

I put them on my vee, BUT I changed the handlebars to Moose mid ATV bend bars. With this combo, I had no fitment issues, but it doesn't pull back as far as the stock bar would have.
