Can't say anything about the bars but can STRONGLY recommend the Zero Gravity Sport Touring Screen!

Half the folks racing XB-types use it for racing - the stock screen looks cool but doesn't do squat for cutting the wind compared to the sport touring.

My profile has a pic of my bike with the sport touring screen - here's another:

I would recommend against the Zero Gravity Double Bubble - you just won't get out of the wind as much.

I have the double bubble on mine. Parked it outside for more than a short while,
and you guessed it...the gage face melted. A line right down through the top edge of
the face plate frame. Go for the ST screen.
