Now I've got the bars where I want them, but they turn inward too far and I have to really twist my wrist to rest and pull the clutch/brake levers. Can I take a bar to the inside of the handlebars and bend the last 8" or so without ruining them? Thanks!

Hiya Boomer! It can be done but the problem is the cut outs for the wires. Because of them, bending would likely result in stress cracks.

IT HAS ALSO BEEN MY EXPERIENCE THAT WHEN THE BARS GET BENT IT RESULTS IN THE CHROME CRACKING AND EVENTUALLY PEELING. EITHER WAY MOST LIKELY END UP REPLACING BARS.
