I am putting Nighthawk 650 handlebars on my Shadow 500. I like the position much better (similar situation as yours), but to finish the project I need a shorter clutch cable and the original front brake master cylinder now mounts at an angle so that I would not want to open the top. So, I am looking for a Nighthawk master cylinder & mounting clamp as well as a shorter brake line. BUT I think the extra work is worth the better ergonomic position for my arms.
