    I've been thinking about getting something like these B&G stoppers

    but that looks clean...I'll drop a line now.

    EDIT: Can't seem to send you a PM, maybe I don't have enough posts. How much do your adjustable stops run and will you ship to the US?

    Wheel weights on the stops will reduce turning angle in give you more clearance. Cheap and fast way to see if you can live with it.

    How did you mount the factory bar weights??

    Late update but if anyone's on the fence, I can't recommend redratbike's adjustable lockstops enough. They work great and made it possible to fit the Carmichael bend bars.

    For my bar ends, I used the G2 threaded bar end mount. You tap the bars, then install a threaded (on the inside and outside) nylon rod into which the bar end bolt is installed. Works well and they haven't loosened up on me yet, but they take an 8mm bolt so the stock bar ends won't work with this system. It's a nice way to go for Rhinomoto bar ends, though.
