I recently viewed a item on fleabay it was a storz adapter for a c10 for tubular bars it looked real nice but the guy wanted $90 so I just watched it till it expired. It looked kind of like the KB one Murph sells but different,are those things any good and would you have to remove or modify your lock cover plate?

I removed my lock plate cover, isn't really noticeable because that area (outside of the key cylinder of course) gets covered up by the adapter. The key cylinder has a black ring around it, so it doesn't look bad.

For reference, I had double risers (2 1/2") prior to converting .
Converted to the tubular Daytona Touring bars, but, added a set of Rox Speed risers (thanks to Eddie Minter's guidance) and really like the set-up. Another item I like going to the tubular bars, they are wider than stock, so you get more 'leverage'. Took a couple of rides to get used too, but kinda like it now. Was considering 'shortening" the bars a little bit, but, I also found the wider stance, having my arms more open while riding improved my comfort level.  I haven't had that tension knot between the shoulder blades I usually get.
BTW, I picked up a set of the Rox risers from their clearance section for about 30% off retail, very minor blemishes, but I have some stuff to get powder coated and I'll get these done at the same time.

I am using the Storz bar adapter with Rox Anti vibration risers. Marked improvement in buzz reduction. At the suggestion of anther cogger I went with Honda Nighthawk S bars, which are adjustable fore and aft for even further adjustability. Very happy with the riding position and reduction of buzz. Visuals, not so much. I think blacking out everything cleaned up the installation as did a aluminum cover that a friend fabricated. The advantage to the cover plate is it makes a nice 'console' for farkles without cutting up the inner fairing panels. I think I probably spent 75 dollars for the Storz adapter from eBay. For the advantage it presents 90 dollars would be money well spent. Prior to this set up more than an hour on the bike was pure torture. I recently did 600 miles total during the wild flower ride in the Texas Hill Country and could have easily riden more. I like to think it kept me from having to sell my favorite bike.

Not sure how the lockplate looks normally since my bike came with the storz adapter on it.
Here's a couple shots of how mine is set-up, hope this helps to provide some insight.
