I believe the Explorer bars bend a little more back towards the rider, sort of less straight, some think the Tiger bars place your hands and therefore elbows in an unnatural angle.
This is exactly my issue. So now thinking of buying the explorer bars if that suits me better

Hello. I installed a steering wheel from China on my 2014 XC. Native wheel of my numb hands. With a new wheel I go a year, very pleased with it, it is made very high quality. Photo below, and there is also a link to the store where I bought a steering wheel in China.

Antoher thing I just thought about. I have the OEM heated grips. Do I need to remove the fuel tank to be able to locate and disconnect the heated grips or any other modifications/holes drilled for the heated wires om the 1200 handlebars?
