I've been lurking on this list for awhile but don't know what year or model
is of your interest, but this response relates to the 89 chassis CQ and

I understand that the RS2 (and S2?) front ASB may be 27mm re: the stock 90Q
and CQ's 25mm bar.  If so, it will be 36% stiffer than stock, a worthwhile
change.  No BTDT, but would like to find one cheap.  Can anyone confirm the
RS2 and S2 bar diameters?

In the rear, I have replaced my stock 14.2mm rear bar with a 22mm 4K front
bar, opting not to go as far as to the 24mm 4KQ bar.  Relative to the stock
14.2mm bar, the 4K bar is 5.75 times as stiff, and the 4KQ bar is >8 times
as stiff!  These bars are cheap and almost bolt up replacements for the
stock bar.
