Lower bars do work better for front end feel.....but there is no feel on an stock FZ07. The stock tires provide no feedback at all ..and the front suspension is numb. Not to mention that the rubber mounted handlebars remove any "feel" that had any chance to reach the bars. The solution is to upgrade the fork internals and change over to a more sport oriented tire. With the AK20's and BT016 Pros....I have really good feel now. It tracks around corners like a slot car.Put a set of FZ6R bars on, puts your hands an inch forward and an inch or so down. I'll let you know how it feels. Should put a little more weight on the front end.
