I'm 6'4" and dropped my bars down around 2" after the stock bars bent on my first ride. Bars in your face on a steep sidehill in wrong foot forward position is no way to maintain control. It isn't perfectly comfortable for meadow mashing but I found my sweet spot for technical terrain. 

 

Did you have the Sp or the X bars. I am also 6'4 and trying to figure out what would be best for me. I currently have the X bars with the 2" taller then stock riser but I am starting to think its too tall. thoughts?

How do u like the Munster? Any issues with tRees or branches hitting it?

 

From the feel of it I'm going to love it and i don't see it being an issue with the trees as I have it pointing downward towards the ground. 

only complaint is the price..... 

 

I put one on my sled last season and its hands down the best mod I did! it allows you to actually drive the sled when doubling and I had SO MUCH more control and confidence. you can switch fingers when one gets sore.. I will say its very painful for the first few rides. I used to fall into the thumb throttle all the time when doubling. I think this is much safer. There is a throttle guard granted I don't like how it looks but I do have it on my sled.

I know, XMs are old and boring and out of date and worthless now according to everyone i talk to, yeah yeah.. "get a G4"

I didnt take any pictures over the summer... things i did/added:

 

ICEAGE rails
stiffeners
made some UHMW torsion spring retainers
replaced T-Motion lockouts

anti stab kit
Elka Stage 4 center shock
Elka Stage 3 front shocks

E-Module

S-module

TKI Belt drive

and some other small things
kept the controls i used last season, really liked them.

update on the 163" as well:

Replaced rails.. again because i bent the 1st set of oems.. and then bent the set of ICEAGE rails i got and replaced those with bomber rails and put a CAMSO 163x15x3" challenger X track on there.

 

I really want to get one of these tracks for the 154 as well..

It limits the movement there is still about a 1mm movement or so but its enough to notice a difference in how it rides, they last about 800 miles or so if you're a more agressive rider. If you want to completely lock it out i think zbros and skinz make an arm that does that.
