Quick Question re: Nitto Mustache bars

Could anyone out there with these bars measure the length of the straight section around the clamp area for me? I'd like to know how much room (width) there is before the bars curve forward on either side. Thanks in advance!

Probably less than 5", right? Just wondering if my current rack set up would transfer, looks like a no.

20mm... from the edge of the sleeve to the start of the bend. Not a lot of real estate there.
