Front bars

Just curious how long handle bars should be?
Cause i think I'm losing some balance because my bars are too wide.

So figuratively speaking, if I were sitting on my seat and spun my bars around 360 degrees, how much clearance should that mofo have fron my stomach? And other way you can really tell how much to cut off the ends?

Cheers,
Zigg's

well its all personal preference, I cut my bars so they almost toch the nose of my seat when spun 90 degrees, my neighbor cuts his really really short and i cant stand it...so its all what you feel like doing, if you think they are too long cut em, but just becareful, you can always cut more off, but cant put it back on.
