Thanks again. I think seeing as you two find it unusual that the bars are so big perhaps I'll shimmy under it some time with a digi vernier and double check those sizes.

It's not unusual, perfectly possible they are 24mm, but for road and the occasional track day they are pretty uncompromising and you'll also need a fairly heavy poundage front spring to match them.
Oh, and pedant mode on, there's no such thing as a digital vernier!!!!!
You mean a digital caliper.

waggle a spanner over them, quicker :D

i have 23's on my zx, with the extra length they come in at about 220 lb wheel rate with about 120kg more rear axle weight, 205 with a shorter 23mm bar would have a higher wheel rate.

I knew I'd get picked up on something. I strive for the day I'm as perfect as you Tom.
