Last summer I got a really trashed bike with sakae "Road Champion" bars that were slitted on the bottom below the steam head, in middle. LOUSY JAPANESE JUNK GOING BAD ON ME !! I threw them away. WHEW I DODGE AN ACCIDENT!! I thought as I walked away from the garbage can in front of the garage ...

A week later I checked my garage and all my SAKAE bars are made that way, even the NOS ones.

The shape is roughly an oval / anorexic diamond, about 5 mm wide and about 1" long.
