Nice collection you've got there!
I've got Ducati monster (796 I think) bars on mine, and haven't noticed difficulty in steering. Just a bit more weight over the front. Which to me makes the bike feel a bit more secure in fast corners. They're a bit lower than stock, but not as low as the lsl drag bars.

Thank you!

It just weird since the LSL bars are cut to the same length as the OEM bars. I guess I just need to work on bringing my forearms down more so they're on the same plane as the bars, I might be pushing down more than I'm pushing forward.

Do you know what grips are on your bike? I'm really digging the grey.

Also keep an eye on those plastic heel guard when you ride hard or do track days, I tucked the left one under the chain guard multiple times.

Could be body position indeed, if it doesn't work you could try a set of monster bars, they're sort of halfway between the lsl and the stock bars.

My grips are renthal dual compound:

The soft bit does wear quite quick though. But I really like em.

Some times I feel like I'm still sooo far from being at max lean but for whatever reason feel like I shouldn't lean it over anymore, maybe it's due to my bp being far off the bike but when I check my rear tyre I can see that I'm running all the way to the edge. The front tyre normally has quite a bit of room left on each side though.

Nice bunch of bikes! Based on your observation about a bit of room left on the side of your front tyre I would think that your front/rear balance is a tad off (assuming that a balanced bike should produce somewhat even wear front and back). I'd suggest increasing spring rate / preload on the rear a bit (or bars that bring your bp further to the front), worked wonders for me for subjective bike feel (I'm big and always have to adjust rear suspension a lot).
Cheers!
