I'm running higher Renthal bars on my Monster. Are there any negatives to opening the steering stops to the max? I read somewhere that they help protect the tank from dents from the bars if dropped. It looks like the new higher bars might clear the tank in a drop, with some assist from the frame sliders.

Feel free to adjust them all you want. Most of us adjust them so you hit the stop just before your fingers get pinched on the tank. The only theoretical advantage to tight stops is to help control tank slappers, but on the street, the wider the better.
