it doesnt work as the bar profiles are all different , and yes ive sized it up , have fg xr bar and trust me it dosent look good when you put the 2 together . in other words FG XR to EB ED bar = Fail !

I was thinking of getting a XR (maybe BA/BF) bar grafted to the NF front bar at one stage just to have some real lights in the front and a better air opening, and SWC told me that anything is possible with fibreglass, so if thats what you want dude go for it - we can't all look the same or we all be like the XC Cobra car club!! :lol:

As Dave has said, profiles are just too different to make it work. AU/BA/BF thats a different matter
