Converting an XJ to accomodate round bars

This was submitted by Axel, not a lot of details but it appears he used XS650 risers...

He modified the ignition switch mount and cover (not shown) and some spacers are needed.

It's also possible to swap on the 'Special' top tree, but other mods will be needed; the XJ gauge mount won't fit the Special tree, and you may have to mod the headlight ears.
Fast, Cheap, Reliable... Pick any two
